  • Sharma doesn't see a weakness in Kohli's batting.
  • Kohli's batting has reached the next level with sensational performances in the World T20 and IPL.
  • Sharma feels Kohli is ready to captain in all three formats but he should wait as long as MS Dhoni is around.

The sheer self-belief in his ability separates Virat Kohli from the rest and he is very much capable of breaking Sachin Tendulkar's records with the way he has been batting, feels his childhood coach Rajkumar Sharma.

Sharma doesn't see a weakness in Kohli's batting, which has reached the next level with sensational performances in the World T20 and subsequent IPL.

"He is in sublime form at the moment. I don't remember anyone playing for India being as consistent as Kohli. Even internationally, there won't be many who have shown the consistency Kohli has shown. With the way he is batting, he is very much capable of breaking Sachin's records," Sharma, who watched Kohli lead RCB in the IPL final in Bengaluru on Sunday, said on Wednesday.

There has been no looking back for India's Test captain ever since the forgettable tour of England in 2014 when he failed to make a single half century in five Tests. He soon worked on the flaws in his game and went to hammer four hundreds in the subsequent four-Test series in Australia.

Talking more about Kohli's transformation and the ongoing phenomenal phase, Sharma said: "What separates him from the rest is the self-belief in his ability. He backs his ability and the way he adapts to different conditions against different opposition is very good and it is a very important reason why he is successful. And he is always hungry for runs.” Indian media reports.
