Manjrekar expressed his view by saying, Sunil Gavaskar took retirement in 1987, just after two years we got Sachin and then comes Virat, and he is special among them.

Even in the MRF Tyres ICC Test Rankings, Virat Kohli became No.1 Test Batsman after adding crucial runs on the scorecard; he scored 149 and 51 in both of his innings in the first Test played at Edgbaston still India lost by 31-runs. Virat’s knock helped Indian batting line-up, but no one was there to receive the baton on the other end.

Before India was heading into the series, there were many talks about Virat’s performance in England as he had a disastrous tour in 2014. He managed to score only 134 runs in Five Test But after four years, He overcome the fault in his technique and scored a flamboyant 200 runs in Birmingham Test. He was looking like a lone warrior.  Sanjay said, he is an accurate illustration of Self-Belief, he is the biggest asset of the Indian cricket. Sanjay was backed by Jason Roy, but he said, “We are not scared of him”.
