Saqlain told about his talk with the England support team that they were discussing about how Virat Kohli played in the third match of the series almost alone.

Jimmy Anderson tried to beat him many times but Virat played on with self-assurance and poise. According to Saqlain, the Indian skipper thirsts for runs and triumph and when someone has this much craving, he will do almost anything to fulfil his needs.

The Indian team made a tremendous comeback in the series against England with a much wanted win in the 3rd test match played in Trent Bridge. And the player who pioneered was none other than the brilliant skipper Virat Kohli who smashed a century and a 97 and no one could stop Saqlain from calling him as Tendulkar’s equivalent. Although England is still in the lead with 2-1, two tests are still left as a chance for India to continue their vividness.

Further, Saqlain went on to say that it is definitely worrying for England, the way Virat is making runs. He also said that without Virat, taking on India would be trouble-free for England.
