Baloch’s hand-eye coordination has already caught the attention of the experts and it looks he is seriously imitating his idol.
Pakistan had unearthed a Virat Kohli in batsman Ahmed Shehzad earlier but it was more for the looks that the latter sported than any cricketing feat. In fact, the cricketer was even trolled in the past for comparing himself with the dashing Indian batsman. And now, the neighbours seem to have found another batsman as a close reply to the Indian captain and he is a teenager named Usama Baloch.
Baloch is only 18 but the batting style of the batsman born in Dera Murad Jamali in Pakistan’s Balochistan province has a striking similarity with that of Kohli. His backlift and using the face of the bat with a lot of dominance has made his similarity with Kohli relevant even though the youngster has to cover a long distance to match Kohli’s feats with the willow.
