Indian skipper Virat Kohli has been a standout performer with the bat in the ongoing five-match Test series between India and England. Though India have lost the Test series after conceding a 60-run defeat in the fourth Test match, the 29-year-old captain has been a beacon of hope for the team’s struggling batting order.

On Wednesday, former India coach Greg Chappell heaped praises for Virat Kohli but added that his best was yet to come.

“Kohli, as well as having great physical talent, has the mental capacity and the emotional capacity to deal with what it takes to be successful in that really harsh environment. I don’t know that there are many with more will to succeed than Virat. He has a real desire. Something’s driving him that is beyond what most people are capable of. I think we still haven’t seen the best of him,” Greg Chappell was quoted as saying by icc-cricket.com.

Talking about Virat Kohli’s performance in the ongoing Test series, Chappell said what Virat Kohli had done in England tour was exceptional.

“What he has done in England on this tour has been quite exceptional. A lot of people doubted that he could manage in those conditions. I am assuming that he didn’t doubt it, or if he did doubt it, he was determined to overcome it. His batting on this tour has been very outstanding. The innings between him and (Ajinkya) Rahane in the first innings of the Trent Bridge Test when they were three down for not many was quite a performance. He has probably exceeded what anyone would have expected,” Chappell added.
