Not just batsman but Virat Kohli is best sportsman in world, says this coach!

New Delhi: Virat Kohli's record-breaking run in 2016 has been truly awe-inspiring.

India's Test skipper has redefined T20 batting and is now the torchbearer for consistency in the most unpredictable format of cricket.

After his heroics against Delhi Daredevils on Sunday, Virat was hailed by cricket fans and experts as the best batsman in the world at the moment.

Amidst the adulation, one particular remark definitely stood out. RCB's batting coach Trent Woodhill termed the right-hander as the greatest sportsman on the planet.

That's a huge compliment from a man who is considered as one of the best in the business.

Kohli is part of a generation of sportsmen that are changing their respective sports.

Novak Djokovic, Stephen Curry and Lionel Messi are at the peak of their powers and setting new benchmarks.

Virat has truly placed himself in the category of the trio when it comes to form and fitness.

While it is difficult to compare athletes from two different sports, there is no denying that Virat is making as much impact to cricket as Curry, Djokovic andbat Messi are to their disciplines.
