Ravi Shastri has compared Virat Kohli to two legends of the game. In an interview with Cricbuzz, he lavished praise on the Indian skipper after he won all the major ICC awards. According to him, India is lucky to have a captain like Virat Kohli. He feels Virat is like Imran Khan and Vivian Richards, the two greatest players in the history of cricket.
“But here is a guy who is as dominant as Sir Vivian Richards. The closest I have seen to the great man. Virat is in your face, he wants to dominate and has a work ethic like no one else. Whether it comes to discipline, training, sacrifice or self-denial, it is unbelievable.
“I think India is lucky to have a leader of that sort. He reminds me of Imran Khan in many ways — in the way he sets the example and sets the standards, and goes about defining it in his own way and leading from the front,” Shastri further said.
