There has always been a debate over the best Test batsman between Australian Steve Smith and the Indian skipper Virat Kohli. Though there are many experts, who found it tough to give an answer, but the former England spinner Monty Panesar has got an interesting answer as he rated both as a world-class batsman.

Monty Panesar said that former Australian skipper Steve Smith is a better Test batsman than Indian captain Virat Kohli, but he also believes it’s impossible to stop run-machine Virat Kohli across format and that the Indian captain will break all records.

Monty Panesar also feels that as an overall batsman Kohli beats Steve Smith as the best batsman of the era.

“Steve Smith is a better Test batsman than Virat Kohli. But if you take an overall package, especially limited-overs, Virat stands out. He is overall a world-class batsman. Virat is the best batsman in the world. Smith is the best Test batsman in the world,” Panesar told Times of India in an interview.
