HIGHLIGHTS

  • Gough reveals that he was amazed by Kohli’s skill the first time he saw him
  • Kohli played for the first time in England in 2011
  • Gough feels the former Indian captain is one hundred away from regaining form

Former England pacer Darren Gough has opened up on his first impression of Virat Kohli and compared him to the legendary Indian batter, Sachin Tendulkar.

Kohli is considered to be one of the modern greats of the game and has found himself being compared to Tendulkar on multiple occasions. The 33-year-old already has 70 international hundreds to his name as well.

The Indian star first travelled to England with the Indian squad in 2011, where he impressed everyone with his performances.

Talking to Cricket.com, Gough revealed his first impression of the right-handed batter when he saw him playing in England. He revealed his amazement at the talent of the former Indian skipper and compared him to Tendulkar.

“When I first saw him playing in England, I thought, WOW I thought Tendulkar was good. He was brilliant, a genius in fact, but this guy, Virat Kohli is right up there with him. Amazing player, such style, aggression everything I wanted to look for in a cricketer. He can take on the short ball, good against spin. He has got that arrogance, puts the cap on as well now and again,” said Gough.

Kohli has been going through a lean patch in international cricket as his last hundred came way back in 2019. Gough said that he wants Kohli to get back to scoring hundreds and compared his lean patch to the one Root was going through sometime back. The former England pacer said that Kohli is one century away from regaining form.

“I want him to get back scoring hundreds. We have seen Joe Root used to go through that spell a lot of 70s, 80s and 90s. But I feel that with Virat, once he gets one, he would just keep going hundred, hundred, hundred. And that’s what Joe Root has done. Virat is going though that spell and he just needs to score that first one and then he is going to cash in for the next 3-4 years,” said Gough.
