Simon Katich, the newly appointed coach of Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) lavishly praised the Indian skipper Virat Kohli for his match-winning knock in the 2nd T20I against South Africa. On Wednesday evening, Kohli once again showed his true class as he scored an unbeaten 72-run knock while driving India to another win in the chase in Mohali bringing back the memories of his 2016 World T20 outing against Australia.
According to Simon Katich, the records of Virat Kohli speaks for him and his contribution as an individual for cricket cannot be neglected. He also became the leading scorer in T20Is leaving his fellow teammate Rohit Sharma behind during the course of his strokeplay in the middle. Katich also recalled the century scored by Virat Kohli in Perth and regarded it as the best one he had ever seen from the Indian skipper.
“Kohli’s records speak for him. I have a huge amount of respect for what he has achieved not only as a player but also as the captain of India. What I really like about him is the fact that he is super competitive. I also had the pleasure of watching him score a hundred at Perth last year in the Test series at what was like an old WACA wicket. It was one of the best Test hundreds I have seen,” Simon Katich said as quoted by India Today.

Along with Simon Katich, the newly appointed director of RCB, Mike Hesson was also blown away with Kohli’s performance and said, “He is as good as they get in world cricket and we saw yet another example of what an amazing player he is. He is a fine leader who leads with real spirit and passion.”
Virat Kohli who is currently the RCB skipper will work along with Simon Katich and Mike Hesson to turn the fortunes of their team who is still struggling to finish the drought of IPL trophy since the inaugural IPL season.
