Swann hails Kohli as the ‘Modern-Day Jesus’

Indian skipper Virat Kohli has evolved into a great ambassador of the game as he used to be quite arrogant and aggressive during his earlier days at the international level, but he has now become one of the most graceful yet competitive cricketers in the world.

The skipper recently won the hearts of the cricket fans when he stopped a group of Indian spectators from booing former Australian skipper Steve Smith. He also walked off during the match against Pakistan when he thought that he had nicked the ball when in reality he had not.

Former English spinner Graeme Swann has said that Virat Kohli is his favourite human being on planet earth right now as he has stood by the right things even after being such a massive cricket star.

“You’re cheating yourself more than anything. Virat walked off and it turned out he didn’t even nick it. So, he’s that honest. He’s given himself out when he’s even not. Honestly, he is a modern-day Jesus,” he said.
