Yesterday, Virat was brilliant against the Aussies. But so was he against 巴基斯坦 a couple days earlier. Against the wily and the crafty pace of Amir and Co. , he had stood like a rock and weathered everything that came his way. At the beginning of this 年 Down Under, probably everyone had run out of adjectives and superlatives in the effusive praise of this superstar of Indian cricket. Like the little master himself, he relishes the challenge brought on board 由 the Aussies. From rightly carrying the mantle of India's best batsman and on being the way to the World's best; he has mastered the dying art of orthodox batting and yet delivered with a consistency that would befuddle the purists and the novices alike. But then again, countless paeans and praises have been published as a tribute to the art of batting he portrays on the canvas of the cricket field. Why this, then ? Another of probably 10876 columns written over him. This actually is a loud cry to the commentators who would capture the mood of the billion 粉丝 out there during each of Virat's assaults on the field. If the game in the 90's deserved and witnessed two wizards in Sachin and Lara, it also needed the baritones and enthusiasm of Tony Greig and Boycott. Yes , we have Mark Nicholas and Harsha who do this to the best of their ability. Yet, why do we feel that its is the print media and the TV media which grabs most of the special after the game. While a Tony Greig 或者 Richie Benaud made the commentary symbolic and synonymous with the magical tons of Sachin in Sharjah 或者 any other ground, we are still searching for someone who the 粉丝 would easily identify with Kohli's run chases in the same breadth .Truth is; we all want to be soaked in the moment when he delivers, for eternity. A timeless narration without the fear od reprimand from the production company is all we want. A Danny Morrison in his animated yet lovable 描述 of the batting whiplashes of Kohli would capture the frenzy of a billion 粉丝 so aptly. We surely need the voice artists like Peter Drury and Martin Tyler and a few from the cricketing world of yester years to recreate te Kohli magic so that it lingers on . Like it was yesterday and another one is imminent.
Yes, as an emotional Indian; we have become the JABRA FANs of Kohli; truth is we also need someone to be magnanimous in praise of this phenomenon so that it seems to be a daily affair.
