Kohli, Rohit Best T20 Batsmen World Has Ever Seen - Van der Dussen


Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma have scored aplenty of runs in the Twenty20 International (T20I) format. Leading the most runs scorer list, Virat Kohli has 2441 runs to his name while his deputy Rohit Sharma has 2434 runs. Virat Kohli scored his 22nd T20I half-century in Mohali against South Africa on Wednesday to help India register an easy win in the second T20I.

Speaking about the two Indian batsmen, ahead of the final T20I in Bengaluru, South Africa's vice-captain Rassie van der Dussen said that bowling to the likes of Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma is a challenge for any bowling attack as they are "the best T20 batters the world has ever seen".

"They (Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan) are probably three of the best T20 batters the world has ever seen. Virat and Rohit are the two leading run scorers at the moment in international T20 cricket," van der Dussen was quoted as saying by PTI.

"It's a great challenge for young bowlers coming here and bowling to these guys. But like I said, we know what the challenge is. If we want to get a win, we have to nullify this kind of players," he added.

He said the team is missing the services of long-serving leg-spinner Imran Tahir.

"Imran Tahir is obviously massive for us. He has been so good, he has retired from one-day cricket so he is going to focus on T20 cricket, and we know he is a big weapon for us.

The challenge for other bowlers is that we don't have the luxury of a guy like that, who can come in and bowl four overs for 20, and maybe take one or two wickets," he added.
