“Kohli is aggressive. I am a big fan of him. I like a good batsman and good aggression. And I like the fact that someone can play Australia like that. I think Virat Kohli is going to give it back to Australia this time. Virat is special and I like that game. I also played in the same game. Can you imagine Viv and Virat playing in the same team?” the big West Indies batsman had famously commented on air during an India vs West Indies game in the past.

Boss Among Bosses

Kohli captioned the picture as “With the biggest BOSS” referring to Richards. The Indian cricket team skipper has been very vocal about his fascination for the big West India batsman. Both were seen under the same frame ahead of India's final T20 game in Guyana
Meanwhile, India currently leads the three-match T20 series 2-0 and have already sealed it following a 22-run victory, via the DLS method, in a rain-affected game in Miami, United States. India had beaten West Indies by four wickets in the opening T20.
Debutant Navdeep Saini was the star in the opening game taking 3/17 in four overs, including a 20th over maiden, to help the visitors bundle Windies for 95 runs. India made a mess of the run-chase but somehow scraped through thanks to some vital contributions from the lower order.
Rohit Sharma then hit a half-century in the second game to give India a perfect start before Krunal Pandya kept Windies under control to give India their maiden away T20 series win against West Indies.
Kohli later informed that the team will look to test their bench-strength in the final T20 game in the Caribbean Island. Winning is always going to be a priority. But sealing the series gives the chance to bring few guys in. The idea is always going to be to win first. But winning the first two games gives the cushion," said Kohli in the post-match presentation.
