Back in 2008, a 19-year old Virat Kohli mentioned that South African opener Herschelle Gibbs was his favorite cricketer, even surpassing his idol Sachin Tendulkar. Kohli eventually captained India to triumph in the 2008 Under-19 World Cup in Malaysia. Now many years later, Gibbs has shared his thoughts on Kohli's choice, acknowledging that people often tag him on X (previously known as Twitter) with the clip of Kohli's comment.
''I have. People have tweeted it to me so I did have a look and I was pleasantly surprised. I think it's quite nice,” the ex South African star told Sports Tak.
“I'm a big admirer of him. The way he's played, he's got the utmost respect with regards to what he's achieved at international level. I also think his temperament and character under pressure especially chasing in ODI Cricket is second to none. I think that makes him just a bit more special than the other modern players.”
Gibbs praised ex T20I captain Rohit Sharma, who guided India to their second T20 World Cup victory with a seven-run triumph over South Africa in Barbados. He commended Rohit for instilling confidence in the team's abundant talent.
“I think they have such a variety of skill and a lot more of depth with regards to what they've had in the past. They have a lot of young batters who are very confident and have self-belief. It makes a huge difference when you start showing that character and in particular potential from an early age,” he said.
“It says a lot about the individuals that make up their squad so I mean you look at some of their players for me I would definitely pay good money to go and watch them play.”
“The years of experience definitely showed in his captaincy and I think his batting in the last couple of games was good as he took his game to another level. I mean the intensity with which he played was complete turnaround so he definitely peaked at the right time. You play your best game in the biggest moments,” he added.
Gibbs is presently competing in the 2024 World Championship of Legends. He scored 26 runs in a defeat against the England Champions. After their win over the Pakistan Champions, the Jacques Kallis-led Proteas will face the India Champions in their final league match on July 10, striving to secure a spot in the semifinals.
