West Indian great Viv Richards and Indian skipper Virat Kohli were seen sharing mutual respect as part of their two-part conversation sponsored by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). Kohli has often been likened to the Caribbean legend owing to his flair and classy batting which often leads to victories for India.
The two individuals, as part of their discussion, talked about Kohli’s batting extravaganza in Australia during the 2014 tour. Kohli accumulated a mammoth total of 692 runs in the 4-match series which was marred by several confrontations with the Aussie players.
“I was there at that time. We were doing the Big Bash. The Australians can be bullies, they try to talk you out, but you give it back and I love that. And you (Virat Kohli) give it back with interest with the way in which you perform. That’s what you have to believe in,” said Richards.
