Flamboyant Australian opener, David Warner has heaped praise on Virat Kohli and Steve Smith and termed them two of the best players across formats. Smith and Virat have been two of the most iconic batsmen the world of cricket has ever seen. It is almost impossible to stop them, and every bowling line-up in the world fears to face them.
Both have had an impeccable record as batsmen and have been setting new milestones in every game that they play. They are a part of the fab-four in world cricket at the moment. It has led to comparisons being drawn between them on numerous occasions.
Now, David Warner has lauded both the players and said that both these players are two of the best players across all formats in world cricket at the moment.
David Warner Lauds Virat Kohli And Steve Smith
“In comparison with him [Kohli] and Smith, they are obviously two of the best batters in the world across all three formats. It is going to be a great battle between them if that’s what people are anticipating,” David Warner said on India Today show Inspiration.
“For us, it’s about Australia vs India, we don’t look at individual battles. If it’s individual, it’s bowler vs batter. At the end of the day, we have to do our research well. We know our line and lengths to bowl in Australia. Use our conditions right. Hopefully, the contest is great between bat and ball and great spirit of cricket battle as well.”
Virat Kohli Has Emerged As A Champion Batsman
In the last couple of years, Virat has emerged as the undisputed champion due to Smith’s ban after the Sandpapergate scandal. Still, Smith’s return has been magnificent, and he announced it in style during the 2019 Ashes.
Kohli is now eighth on the list of the most runs scored by a batsman in international cricket. The Delhi-based star has a very long career ahead and the kind of form that he has been in, it seems a considerable possibility that Virat Kohli will lead this chart too.
