Clive Lloyd also said that teams should play more Test matches in the coming times.
Great West Indies cricketer Clive Lloyd praised Virat Kohli and said that this batsman can achieve anything in international cricket. The former captain of India is in great form at the moment. He was the highest run-scorer in the recent ODI World Cup 2023. When Virat was struggling with his poor form in 2020 and 2021, he had to face a lot of criticism.
Some former cricketers had even said that he should be dropped from the Indian team. AlthoughDespite all this criticism, Kohli kept moving forward and scored eight centuries in 2023. Kohli has scored 80 centuries in international cricket and is 20 behind the great Sachin Tendulkar’s record of 100 centuries.

Lloyd believes that the 35-year-old still has a lot to offer and if he can maintain his form in the times to come, he can achieve great things. Recently, during an event in Kolkata, Lloyd was asked about the chances of Kohli breaking Tendulkar’s record of international centuries.
Responding to the question, Clive Lloyd said, “I can’t say how long it will take, but he is still young and I am sure with the way he is playing he will be able to achieve whatever he wants to achieve.” Can and it would be a great pleasure to achieve it.”
Former West Indies legend Clive Lloyd wants more Test cricket to be played in the international calendar and said there should be at least three Test matches in bilateral series. The former West Indies captain said during the ‘Ekam Awards’, ‘Probably more T20s are being played at this time. I would like to see a little more Test cricket. And if you are playing Test cricket then I would like to see a series of three or five Test matches.
