India led by Virat Kohli is able to win all ICC tournaments: Brian Lara
NEW DELHI: Great batting Brian Lara He believes that the Indian team led by Virat Kohli is very capable of winning all the ICC tournaments they play. The former Windies captain also felt that Kohli, David Warner & Rohit Sharma They are some of the hitters who can break the record for their highest score in the 400 test.
The Kohli-led Team India will visit Australia for the T20 World Cup in October & November this year & the Men in Blue have been reaching the semi-finals & finals of the ICC tournaments consistently. However, they have faltered on big days.
India last won an ICC tournament in 2013 under the captaincy of MS Dhoni in England.
I think they are definitely able to win every tournament they play. I believe that virat Kohli & company & the Indian team has to appreciate the fact that everybody sort of target India. Everybody knows that some point of time one team is going to play that important match against India. If it's a quarter-final, semi-final & final," Lara was quoted as saying by India Today.
Lara's 400 hit against England in 2004 remains the highest individual score in Cricket test & when quizzed which cricketers could break the record, the former cricketer said: "It would be difficult for Steve Smith to do batting at No.4 for Australia. He is a great player but he doesn't dominate. You know a player like David Warner for sure. A player like virat Kohli , who gets in early & gets set."
He is a very attacking player. Rohit Sharma on his day. So, they have got quite a group of players who can do so, he added.
