Of late, perhaps, there was not even a single day in the cricketing world without the talk on the Indian skipper Virat Kohli. He has been sensational across the formats for his brilliance in batting and leading the team from the front. Meanwhile, the former Australian Shane Warne also lauds Virat Kohli for his incredible style of playing the game in the right way.
Recently, Virat Kohli became the first player in history to win the Sir Garfield Sobers Trophy. And also, ICC Cricketer of the Year, the ICC Men’s Test Player of the Year and the ICC ODI Player of the Year awards following an extraordinary 2018.
It’s refreshing to hear Virat Kohli talk: Shane Warne
The former leg-spinner quoted that the Indian skipper has got the great ability to play the game in the right way. He also lauded Virat Kohli’s consistency while chasing the scores for the team, which he thinks is the exceptional talent that no other cricketer got over the years.
Further, he believes that the people love the batsman for his batting also the way he speaks regarding the game. He added that there is a sense of honesty to the talks of Virat Kohli, which makes him the best in the business.
”He’s fantastic. I love watching him bat and I love listening to him. I am a big fan. Virat Kohli speaks his mind. I think world cricket loves him. Everyone loves Virat Kohli because it’s refreshing to hearing him talk so honestly and openly. He loves confrontation,” Shane Warne quoted to Cricbuzz in an interview.
”That’s why he has those 100s in chases. How many, 23, 24? The next best is how much? I can’t remember who’s second. That’s something inbuilt into you. That’s not skill or talent. He’s got a lot of that. That is just pure competitiveness and pure desire – to get the job done,” he added to his lines.
Well, as Shane Warne said, Virat Kohli has always been clear in expressing his thoughts be it in the post-match presentation or in a press conference. However, it is pleasing to hear such lovely words from Australian legend to an Indian batsman.
Virat Kohli will return to the game of cricket when Australia visits India for an ODI series. After that, he will lead Royal Challengers Bangalore, who are yet to win a single championship.
