The rivalry between Virat Kohli and Steve Smith has been under debate in the past few months. Both players have been doing exceptionally well for their teams which has brought them in a close contestation. However, it seems like that the Australian middle-order batsman is a big fan of Virat’s work.
Applauding his tremendous performances, Steve Smith said "Yeah, he is terrific. His batting numbers just speak for themselves. I think he's an incredible player in all three formats and I think we will see him break many records”. The former Australian captain also admired Virat’s captaincy skills.
Talking about Virat’s leadership, Smith said that he has set good standards for the Indian team. “He has got the Indian side to a really good position and leads them exceptionally well”, he added. Recently, Smith enjoyed a great outing in India where he scored 229 runs for his side in just 2 matches, however; he could not prevent his team from a 2-1 series defeat.
