Indian cricket commentator and former cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar who has not shied away from showing his affection towards Imran Khan has said that the current Indian squad under skipper Virat Kohli’s leadership reminds him of Pakistan’s team when it was led by the current Prime Minister of the country.
“India under Virat in NZ reminds me of Pakistan under Imran. Strong self belief as a team. Pakistan under Imran found different ways of winning matches, often from losing positions. That only happens when the self belief is strong.” Manjrekar tweeted.
In December, Kohli had said that his priority, as a player, is to help India win matches than just play ‘slam-bang cricket’ for the sake of entertaining the crowd.
India is currently the top Test and One Day international-playing nation in the world while Pakistan holds the top position in the Twenty20 International rankings.
