Former Pakistan captain Salman Butt praised Indian captain Virat Kohli for his consistency, dedication and match-winning skills. He called the current phase of Indian cricket under the leadership of Kohli the ‘Golden Age’. Kohli has completed 13 years in international cricket on Wednesday. Virat made his ODI debut against Sri Lanka in Dambulla. He scored 12 runs. Butt said 32-year-old Virat Kohli has had a big impact on the team’s fortunes.
Salman Butt said the new era in Indian cricket began on the day Virat Kohli made his international debut. The way he has proven himself to the world as a cricketer over the past 13 years. He is a sports icon. The way he transformed himself and his commitment to the game is amazing. He was outstanding, never seen before. He has not scored a century in the last 2 years. Imagine the impact he had on Indian cricket.

Salman Butt has described Kohli as an inspiration to the next generation. He said, “When he is chasing the target, his average is 90 and the strike rate is above 100. What he does may not be what the opposition team likes but he is an inspiration to all young players. Indian cricket is very fortunate, and even after Kohli’s retirement, his influence will continue to dominate Indian cricket.
