There is a debate among fans and pundits about who currently holds the title of the face of world cricket. However, according to a tennis commentator, the Indian star Virat Kohli is the rightful owner of this distinction. A video of the commentator comparing tennis player Carlos Alcaraz to Kohli has gone viral on social media.
In the video, Alcaraz is seen playing against Stefanos Tsitsipas on a clay court. Alcaraz executes a remarkable drop shot that Tsitsipas fails to return. Impressed by the shot, the commentator compares Alcaraz’s skill to that of greats from other sports.
“It’s like watching Virat Kohli in cricket or Michael Jordan,” the commentator remarks.
In response, his fellow commentator expresses agreement, saying, “Really, it’s that special. So good! All you can do is smile.”
In a stunning turn of events, Alcaraz secures his victory over seven-time champion Novak Djokovic, shattering Djokovic’s hopes of claiming his 24th Grand Slam title. Despite dropping the first set and saving a set point in the second, Alcaraz triumphs with a score of 1-6, 7-6 (8/6), 6-1, 3-6, 6-4 after a grueling four hours and 42 minutes on Centre Court.
At just 20 years old, Alcaraz becomes the third youngest men’s champion in Wimbledon history and adds another major title to his collection following his previous win at the US Open last year.
