Natural ability married to insatiable hunger for improvement â€” thatâ€™s New Zealand skipper Kane Williamsonâ€™s assessment of his India counterpart Virat Kohli and his record-breaking batting achievements.
Williamson highlighted the difference in Kohli in comparison to 2008 when he made his ODI debut.
â€œYou can say that it was only a matter of time before he (Kohli) was making some strong inroads to the full international scene,â€ Williamson was quoted as saying in Star Sports show â€˜Cricket Connectedâ€™.
â€œAt the moment, leading the way in cricket and setting the standard as a batter and breaking all these records. A lot of that probably has to come down to his maturity, his ability to make very good decisions,â€ he said.
Williamson said he is fortunate to have played against Kohli.
â€œNot only is he gifted with his ability and his natural ability, but youâ€™re marrying that up with this constant drive and hunger to improve and just be better day in and day out,â€ he said.
â€œIt has been great to meet at a young age and follow his progress and journey.â€
