Dwayne Bravo: Virat Kohli is the Cristiano Ronaldo of cricket

Virat Kohli

Ola co-founder Bhavish Aggarwal, Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone, Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli and Microsoft's Indian-born CEO Satya Nadella have been named in TIME magazine's 100 most influential people in the world this year, an annual list of honorees that includes US President Donald Trump.

Team India skipper said, 'I can play in any format of cricket but I can't play those shots what De Villiers plays on the ground.

Kohli had a hard time in India's previous tour of England in 2014. Scoring just a paltry 138 runs in the 10 innings, England has remained the only blot on Kohli's otherwise glittering career. "When I see Virat, I see Cristiano Ronaldo of cricket", he said. He is now ranked No.2 in the MRF Tyres ICC Rankings for Test batsmen and leads the chart in the rankings for one-day worldwide batsmen. "I actually asked Virat to talk to my brother personally about batting, about cricket".

Although the Indian team did admirably in the series against South Africa, there was a prevalent feeling that the Kohli-led team would have won the Test series had they allocated more time to practice matches which would have allowed the players to get accustomed to the alien conditions.

Kohli was strongly linked with a move to Surrey as recently as last month, but neither side confirmed the deal.

"For me, as a cricket player to play against him, and to watch him play when he represents India or even RCB is admire the talent that he has, the passion and talent that he has for the sport and the way he plays".

India are scheduled to play England this summer and then finish off the year with a tour of Australia, and two tour wins will cement their place at the top of the ICC Test rankings.

While Ishant took a five-wicket haul playing for Sussex against Warwickshire, Pujara's match was abandoned without a ball being bowled.

The all-important series will see India play England in three Twenty20 matches, three ODIs and five Tests.
