Kohli has so far scored three 50s, including the one against Bangladesh on Wednesday, in the ongoing showpiece to become the all-time top scorer in the T20 World Cup, topping the former’s tally of 1,016 points Sri Lanka captain Mahela Jayawardene.
“Over 1000 races in the T20 World Cups at an average of over 80, I’m not able to understand that,” Watson said on Star Sports.
“T20 cricket is a high risk game, a high risk hitter and to think he can make it in the biggest tournament, averaging so many games and winning so many games for his country.
“He’s a monster and those stats are super weird. It’s amazing that you can hit in such a risky format and score consistently. It’s ridiculous.”
Kohli scored 220 points with 82 knockouts, 62 knockouts, 12 and 64 unbeaten against Bangladesh.
Jayawardene scored his runs in 31 innings but Kohli only took 23 to pass him.
With Kohli out in force, India took the top spot in Group 2.
