Indian cricket captain, Virat Kohli wears his heart on his sleeves. He doesn’t shy away from expressing his feelings and emotions on the field of cricket. He is passionate to the core and that is a major way for him to bring the best out of himself. There is different level of intensity and fire in Virat, which arguably makes him the greatest batsman of the current generation.
In an interview with the Times of India, Australian legend, Shane Warne admitted that he loves watching Kohli bat and is a big fan of him.
Warne said, “He’s fantastic. I love watching him bat and I love listening to him. I am a big fan. You know what he does? He stands up for what he believes in. He speaks how he feels and he’s real. He’s emotional, a bit too emotional sometimes on the field. But that’s the part of the charm.”
He added, “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. 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.”
