David Warner spells out likeness connecting him and Indian skipper Virat Kohli

Australian opener David Warner loves a duel, both cricketing and also vocal sometimes. The opener likes to have a go at the opposition and attack when the opponent is going after him.

As stated by Warner, Indian skipper Virat Kohli is much the same as he is and feels it is better not to go after Kohli as that could be very costly for the other team.

“I thrive on the crowd, I thrive on people sort of going at me in the field. And getting into that battle,” Warner told. “I think Virat is quite similar, if you go a little bit at Virat he comes out harder with the bat and he plays amazing. We have seen that time and time again.”

“There is no point in actually trying to poke the bear because at the end of the day if you do that it just fires up the person a bit more,” he added. The Indian skipper has displayed some great knocks and became the first Indian captain to lead the team to a Test series victory on Australian soil on the 2018-19 tour.

David Warner missed that series along with Steve Smith as they were serving their one year ban for the part they played in the ball tampering scandal in South Africa.

“It’s a much-anticipated return to Australia for India. I am excited, one to be selected and to be a part of that. Last time we were not bad but were beaten by a good team and their bowling was relentless,” said Warner.

“Now, India has got the best batting line-up and our bowlers will like to target them,” he added.
