Former Australian pacer Brett Lee has praised Virat Kohli’s batting skills and called his technique "impeccable". Virat Kohli has been in impressive form for the last couple of years, but according to Lee, Kohli is yet to hit his peak.
MS Dhoni stepped down from the Test captaincy in December 2014, leaving Virat Kohli to take over the responsibility and the 28-year-old has stepped into his shoes with aplomb.
