The Indian skipper, Virat Kohli has been the best batsman for his team across all formats of the game. He has the ability to tackle any bowling attack in the world. The former Australian cricketer, Shane Warne feels the same that he would have smashed him out of the park. Warne also said that he is a huge fan of Virat Kohli and the 30-year-old cricketer is a terrific leader.

“I am a huge fan of Virat. What he brings to the world game is passion. He’s not someone who just toes the line and says what he is meant to say, he says what he feels. He is passionate, he is emotional. And I love that, his cricket, what he brings to the table. I love that he is a terrific leader of men,” Warne said.

“He is an absolute superstar of the world game. And he loves Test cricket so I really respect that as an old-time player who loves Test cricket. I love that he is really pushing it and making it the best form of the game. That’s not to say T20 is not fun, it’s awesome, ODI cricket is awesome,” he added.

The former Australian spinner, Shane Warne believes that India and England are the favourites of the upcoming World Cup. He felt India need the experienced player like Dhoni in the World Cup.

MS Dhoni for me is in the side. For me, he can bat at number four, five, six depending on any situation. So he is definitely the wicket-keeper for me in the team. You need that experience in the squad to win a World Cup. You need your big players to perform well and if India are going to win the World Cup they need Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, and MS Dhoni to perform as well as guys like Bhuvi and Bumrah need to perform really well, “ Warne concluded.
