Rajasthan Royals (RR) all-rounder Chris Morris has recently shared the names of the batsmen he has found difficult bowling. He named India captain Virat Kohli alongside Hardik Pandya, David Warner and Kane Williamson.
Incidentally, Morris is currently in the UAE plying his trade for Rajasthan Royals in the IPL 2021. Showering praise on the Indian batter, Chris Morris said that the Indian captain is an absolute genius.
While speaking to the Khaleej Times, Morris said:
“Virat (Kohli) is obviously a genius, he’s an absolute jet. (David) Warner has been really tough to bowl to because he also just takes you apart. And the person that I probably hated bowling to the most just because he was so solid and he is the nicest guy on the planet is probably Kane Williamson. It’s so frustrating when I want to get angry with someone because he’s such a good guy. Those guys are probably the standouts for me. And I’ll add one more to that — Hardik Pandya. He’s so good, it is scary how well he hits the ball.”
“He hits the ball so cleanly” – Chris Morris hails AB de Villiers
However, the veteran all-rounder Chris Morris has not been added to South Africa’s T20 World Cup squad. Along with them, he also named his national teammates – AB de Villiers and Hashim Amla. He shared his frustration as he has been unable to dismiss the former South African skipper in his career.
“I think AB (de Villiers) comes to mind straight away. He hits the ball so cleanly, he hits it everywhere. I’ve never gotten him out in my career which is very frustrating. I’m very happy to have played with him for many years as well but I’ve never gotten him out. Hashim Amla , whether it be any format. I remember running in a T20 game going I don’t know where to bowl because this guy is smoking me everywhere, walked across the stumps to hit me, back away and cut me, and I remember going I don’t know where to bowl,” Chris Morris concluded.
