Greatest to turn the cricket ball,” Kohli wrote on Twitter.” I’m truly lost for words here, this is extremely sad. An absolute legend and champion of our game has left us. RIP Shane Warne… Still can’t believe it,” said Rohit in his tweet. Warne while speaking to Hindustan Times spoke admirably about Virat. “There is just so much expectation. It’s so difficult to be captain of India in all forms of the game and then play the IPL as well. Everyone looks for him to comment, to be the leader so I’m looking forward to watching Virat bat now. Get someone else to take the captaincy, let someone else do all that, and allow Virat getting back to being the best in the world. I’m really looking forward to that,” Warne started back in January.
“I was a little surprised like everyone. Virat has been a wonderful captain for India but it’s also very tough with the expectations of over a billion people. It’s going to be really tough for him… I don’t think anyone could captain India for a long period of time in all forms of the game and continue to bat at a higher level. So I think it’s a great opportunity now for Virat to go back and prove to himself and everyone why he is the best batter in the world. And hope he can concentrate on his batting and start making hundreds in all forms of the game again. I hope that’s what happens. He has inspired his teammates. India has played a fantastic brand of cricket and let’s hope that continues.”
Warne was the one who praised Virat Kohli before for helping in Test cricket to go on.
