Warne likens Kohli to Richards' batting style

Spin legend Shane Warne has lavished rich praise on India captain Virat Kohli, saying he has already established himself among the greatest to have played the game of cricket. Warne made the bold statement of comparing Kohli’s class to that of West Indian great Vivian Richards.

Kohli has been breaking records at will in the recent past. Although he fared poorly in the tour of New Zealand earlier this year, Kohli averages in excess of 50 across all forms of the game. He is now third on the list of batsmen with the most international hundreds.

"Viv is the best batsman I have ever seen. Sachin and Lara are the two best batters I have played with and now across all formats, Virat is just the best. It is tough to think anyone is better than Viv but Virat is pushing that conversation," Warne said during an Instagram live session.
