KARACHI, Dec 24: Pakistan�s former captain Waqar Younis has tipped Indian skipper Virat Kohli to break all batting records in the years to come.
�The way he is maintaining his fitness and the way he enjoys his game and focuses on his skill level, I think he is destined to break all batting records in the years to come,� Waqar said.
The former fast bowler, who resigned as Pakistan�s head coach last year, said that Kohli was a supreme-talented batsman in contemporary cricket.
Talking about the best batsmen of his era, Waqar said although cricket had changed a lot in the last decade he still rated Kohli at the top because of his commitment to fitness and improving his batting skills.
�The way I see it he should go on to achieve a lot of batting records,� Waqar said.
Asked to compare Sachin Tendulkar and Brian Lara � the two greats of his time � Waqar said he rated the Indian maestro higher.
�I played a lot against Tendulkar and he made his debut against us. Over the years I saw him become a thorough professional and I have not seen such a committed player. He was the best batsman I bowled to and it used to be a challenge.�
He said Lara was naturally gifted and could be devastating on his day.
Waqar said that during his tenure as captain and coach he never compromised on discipline.
�I always believe that unless you are disciplined particularly in cricket sense all your talent is of no use to your team.� � PTI
