There is always a debate as to who is better between the two greatest batsmen of modern cricket, Virat Kohli and Steve Smith, but often you see someone describing them in one word as it is actually quite a challenging thing to do.


The Indian captain has accumulated 7240 runs in 86 Test matches, whereas Smith has clubbed 7227 runs in 73 games. Both remain neck-to-neck in the longest format of the game, and that’s the biggest reason why it’s hard to compare the two and more importantly, define them in one word.

However, New Zealand’s speedster Mitchell McClenaghan has described both the players in a single sentence when he interacted with his fans on Twitter.


Due to coronavirus scare, many cricketers are trying different things to engage themselves. In that process, Mitchell ran a Question and Answer session on Twitter, where he replied to many queries.

During the Q/A session, one fan asked the left-arm pacer to define Smith in one word. Mitchell, without wasting any time, responded to the question and expressed that the former Australian captain is ‘Unique.’

Since Smith was mentioned, it was on the cards that someone would drop a question regarding Kohli, and it happened. A fan asked Mitchell to give his opinion on Indian skipper.


The 33-year-old bowler described Kohli as the greatest player of all time.

“Same as most players. He’s one of the greatest of all time the numbers don’t lie,” tweeted Mitchell.
