Former Pakistan great Javed Miandad recently talked about the attributes that make Virat Kohli a standout player of the current era. While lauding his display with the bat, Miandad revealed the best quality he finds in Kohli.

“Whenever he wants to score, he can. He is powerful and has the ability to clear the ropes easily. But the best thing about him is that he is humble. It is visible that he loves his cricket a lot and respects his fellow cricketers a lot,’ Miandad said on his Youtube channel.

“I have seen his conduct and he is friendly with the opposition also. I have played cricket at the same level, I can say this. Indian cricketers are now said to be aggressive. But there has to be some aggression on the field. However, there has to be a limit,” he added.
