Sir Vivian Richards is thought of as one of the vital largest batsmen ever to have performed for West Indies. Within the overdue 70s and the early 80s, he used to dominate the run-scoring charts along with his swashbuckling taste of batting and attacking stroke play.

En-route his knock, Kohli performed a lofted duvet pressure which left Sir Richards in awe on the statement field.
Within the 22nd over of India’s innings, Kohli performed a wonderful duvet pressure towards West Indies captain Jason Holder. Kohli made some room by means of going leg-side along with his backside leg bent to a big extent. Virat didn’t lose his form although. Regardless of now not being in the most productive of positions to play the shot, Kohli discovered the center of the bat and fielders at the off-side had completely no probability of forestalling the ball from racing away. All they might do is stand and watch.
The shot made the dynamic Richards laud the 30-year-old: “Have a look at the frame language…. oh, guy. I’d be at liberty to play one thing like that once I used to be taking part in.”
