Virat Kohli Revealed The Name Of His Favorite Cricketer

Kohli Named The Fastest Runner He Has Played With
Recently, Virat Kohli was featured in a video on AB de Villiers’ youtube channel, where he was asked to choose the greatest runner between the wickets that he has played with, and he named Ab De Villiers closely followed by MS Dhoni. He had said:
“AB de Villiers has been by far the fastest I’ve run with between wickets. The only other guy I had so much co- ordination and understanding with was MS Dhoni. Now I don’t know about the speeds, but him and MS I did not have to even call. We hardly called for runs,”
On AB’s show, Virat also talked about his recent achievement where he ended his 40-month-long wait to score a Test hundred, as he played a beautiful knock of 186 runs against Australia in the final match of the BGT. Speaking about the same, Kohli said he was disappointed about not getting big enough scores. He said:
“I was getting decent scores, but if you ask me if I was happy with what I was doing. I wasn’t. I pride myself in performing for the team to the best of my ability, I certainly wasn’t doing that enough. I wanted to score big runs, that’s something that always propelled me, whether it was at home or away. I was doing that to a certain extent. But I was not having the same kind of impact that I had before,”
