Veteran Pakistani cricketer Younis Khan has shared Virat Kohli’s exceptional rise as an example for the younger players in his team. The former Yorkshire batsman backed the Indian skipper to surpass the iconic Sachin Tendulkar in the coming years. He also credited his absurd Test record to the support provided by family members as well as former coach Bob Woolmer.
Younis said, “I credit this success and achievement to all my family members, especially my late father, my mother and the late Bob Woolmer, who always motivated me. This is not just my achievement, this is for everyone in Pakistan. This is Pakistan's achievement.”
“I have tried my best to tell them everything - what to do, how to practice, what to do after at the match, what to do after scoring a hundred and what to do after scoring zero. So I am sure if I am not around, they will follow it to become successful.”
“To score 10,000 runs, you have to make up your mind first. If you take an example of Virat Kohli after Sachin Tendulkar's retirement (in 2013), he went on with an aim and a goal. So I am sure in the coming years, he will surpass Sachin.”
