David Warner makes a huge admission regarding Virat Kohli
David Warner might be one of the most prolific openers and run-scorers for Australia today and is often linked to Virat Kohli. However, is the Australian really close to the Indian skipper? Well, there is one sector where he isn't. Find out what it is.
Indian skipper Virat Kohli is rated as the best batsman in the world. Having scored runs consistently across formats, he is dubbed a modern-day great of the sport and is often compared to some of the legends, including Sachin Tendulkar.
Kohli is one of the four horsemen in the modern-day to have dominated the sport, alongside Joe Root, Steve Smith and Kane Williamson. However, Australian opener David Warner is one such man who is often dubbed as an even fast scorer than Kohli.
However, Warner apparently does not feel so. Recently, he shared a story on his Instagram handle that happened to be an infographic of the contemporary cricketers having the most international centuries.
Naturally, Kohli leads the chart, scoring 70 international tons to date, while next to him is Warner, with 43. The Aussie highlighted Kohli and wrote, "Fair to say we ain't catching Virat Kohli". Notably, Kohli has 43 centuries in the One-Day Internationals itself, compared to Warner's 43 across formats.
Kohli is going through a rough patch, as he has been without an international century for over a year. His last ODI ton came in August 2019 against the Windies, scoring an unbeaten 114.
Meanwhile, his last century in Test cricket came the same year, a few months later, scoring 131 against Bangladesh in India's first-ever day-night Test in Kolkata. However, with international cricket coming to a standstill for around six months last year, it deprived Kohli of a big chance to score a ton.
