New Delhi: New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson today went on to praise Indian Test skipper Virat Kohli and said that his ability to dominate in all the three formats of the game makes him “special”.
Addressing reporters ahead of the Black Caps’ three-day practice game against Mumbai, starting on Friday at the Feroz Shah Kotla ground here, Williamson named Kohli as one of the players, whom the Kiwis will look out for during the Test series.
“Virat (Kohli) is a great player. The ability to dominate in all three formats like he does is something very special and certainly something that I admire. I love watching him play,” Williamson said.
“There are a lot of good players in the Indian team whom we will have to look out for. Virat is one of those players, against whom we have to be at our very best.”
The 26-year-old right-hander, who is often counted in the same bracket as Kohli along with Australia skipper Steve Smith and England batsman Joe Root, said each player has his own style and game plan which sets him apart from each other.
