“Virat Kohli is the top-ranked player in the world right now. And I think he is a really dangerous customer for England because he has the motivation that he wants to improve his record in this country,” Gooch told BCCI in a video interview.

“Every player wants to be known to be able to play well all-round the world in all different conditions,” he added. Commenting on the playing styles of Kohli and his English counterpart Joe Root, Gooch said both are world class and match-winning players.

“I think they are both are world class players in all formats of the game. I think nowadays every cricketer has to be very adaptable. You’ve got Tests, 50-over cricket and lots of T20s. “It is difficult to judge different players as I think they both are match-winning players. I love watching Kohli and Root bat as they play all-round the wicket.

“They both are very positive, they both are very focused and I like to see that,” he added.
