Indian all-rounder, Washington Sundar and captain Virat Kohli, have played together quite a lot in recent times. Washington Sundar and Virat Kohli are not only part of the Royal Challengers Bangalore, but have played together for the national team in recent times across formats. Sundar, who is an economical and wicket-taking bowler, has revealed how many times he dismisses Virat Kohli in the nets.

Over the years, Virat Kohli has conveniently ruled the cricketing fraternity as runs have flowed off his bat across formats abundantly. The 32-year old remains the only batsman of the current crop to average more than 50 in Test, ODI, and T20I cricket. Kohli has so far featured in 91 Tests, 254 ODIs, and 89 T20Is, mustering 7490, 12169, and 3159 runs, respectively. He averages an astounding 52.38, 59.07, 52.65 in all three versions.

Hence, such numbers always make him a challenging prospect for the opposition to dismiss and a prized wicket. Aside from his superhuman batting skills, the right-handed batsman has also impressed as captain. While Kohli is yet to lead India to an ICC trophy, he still has envious numbers as captain and has notably kept the Indian team amongst the top three in ICC rankings across formats.

Meanwhile, Washington Sundar, who engaged with ESPN Cricinfo for a Q&A session, revealed that he would be happy if he gets Virat Kohli’s wicket once every two sessions. The 21-year old claimed the Indian skipper to be the king of cricket and, in reality, doesn’t get to dismiss him very often.

“Not too often. He is the king of cricket. I don’t think I would get him out every session. Probably once in every two sessions, if I could get him out, I would be happy,” Sundar stated.
