Melbourne/UNI:  Australia limited-overs captain Aaron Finch says after taking over from MS Dhoni the leadership, that is huge and expectations were high but Virat Kohli kept delivering for so long is just his consistency across three formats.

Finch said all players are expected to endure some bad time but players like Kohli, Steve Smith, Ricky Ponting and batting great Sachin Tendulkar are exceptions.

“Every player, regardless of who it is, has a bad series. But very very rarely do you see Kohli, (Steve) Smith, even going back (Ricky) Ponting, Sachin (Tendulkar), these guys they don’t have two bad series in a row,” Finch said on the Sony Ten Pit Stop show.

“What has been so impressive for so long is just his consistency across three formats. To be the best player of all-time in ODI cricket is one thing but then inch to also be in Test cricket and T20 cricket as a rounded player that is remarkable,” Finch said.

“And taking over from (MS) Dhoni, the leadership, that is huge. The expectations were high and he kept delivering and I think that that is the most impressive thing,” he added.

The Australian known for his explosive batting also praised Kohli's consistency as a batsman too.

Cricketing activities is set to take place after outbreak of coronavirus when England host West Indies on July 8 in a three-match series.
