“I’m number one in the world, Virat Kohli is behind me”: Amazing claim by a Pakistani soldier

One could argue that Virat Kohli is the greatest batter of his time. Kohli recently regained his magic touch and is back to his best after a slump with the bat.

Kohli, who hadn’t scored a century in T20Is in more than three years, made his century debut against Afghanistan in the Asia Cup last year.

The 35-year-old hasn’t looked back since, scoring three centuries in seven ODI matches. He is just three tons away from matching Sachin Tendulkar’s record of 49 for the most ODI tons scored. Tendulkar was a former India batter.

A seasoned Pakistan batter has recently asserted that his record in List A cricket is superior to Kohli’s.

Khurram Manzoor, who has played for Pakistan in 16 Tests, seven One-Day Internationals, and three Twenty20 Internationals, was recently asked about a claim that he had made that his List A numbers were better than Kohli’s.

Manzoor, who last played for Pakistan in 2016, made it clear that he wasn’t comparing himself to the former India captain but rather highlighting his domestic cricket accomplishments.

I’m not comparing myself to Virat Kohli. Regardless of who is in the top ten, the fact of the matter is that I am the world’s number-one player in 50-over cricket.

As he scores a century every six innings, Kohli is behind me. A world record, I score a century every 5.68 innings. On Nadir Ali’s Podcast, Manzoor stated, “My average over the last ten years is 53, and I am ranked fifth in the world, as far as List A cricket is concerned.”

According to the 36-year-old, despite consistently scoring runs in domestic cricket, the national selectors have not taken him into consideration.

Manzoor, for example, last represented Pakistan at the Asia Cup in 2016. Manzoor, who plays domestic cricket for Sindh, has scored more than 12,000 runs in First-Class matches and nearly 8,000 runs in a List.

Cricket since then. He has been honing his skills in Pakistan’s Quaid-e-Azam Trophy and National Cup competitions.
