Virat Kohli is one person who can do that over time. There has to be some amazing talent to do that," Watson said, adding that his century - the first in IPL 2013 -- against Chennai Super Kings has been put into the shade by Gayle's amazing knock.
Watson feels, like McCullum's that innings that stood for a good five years, Gayle's knock may look 'safe', but only just. Cricketers are continuously pushing the boundaries and Watson says:Â "When Brendon McCullum scored that 158 for KKR in the first year, we had thought that would stay on, but then Gayle came by. It would need an extraordinary effort to improve Gayle's 175, but having said that, there are always players with potential."
One man who seems to have caught the imagination of current and old stars is Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper, Virat Kohli.
