Clive Lloyd led the West Indies cricket team to their 1975 and 1979 World Cup victories and is one of greatest players ever produced by the Windies. Even though the Men in Blue ended their World Cup 2019 campaign after 18 runs defeat against the Black Caps in the semis, Lloyd was all praises for the Indian skipper. “Virat Kohli is a tremendous cricketer. I would pay my money to watch him,” said Clive Lloyd.

Clive Lloyd who is in England as a radio commentator for Channel 2, told The Times of India that Virat Kohli has done extremely well for the team and so has Kane Williamson. He mentioned that they are two outstanding captains. “We’ve an Aaron Finch who had captaincy thrust upon him. He’s done well. There are quite a few good captains, but these three stand out,” Lloyd added.

He also appreciated the Indian opener, Rohit Sharma and said that five hundreds in a tournament is an excellent feat. However, he further added that a team can’t just depend on one or two batsmen. He said that there need to have a balance, which India has. He further added that the middle order should see them through and the Indian team has depth in their batting.

New Zealand will play against England in the Finals of the World Cup 2019 tournament, on Sunday, July 14 at Lord’s cricket ground.
