He's a terrific guy, Smith recalls his early memories with Kohli

Australian cricketer Steve Smith described Virat Kohli as a 'terrific guy' and recalled his early interactions with the Indian skipper Virat Kohli.

Virat Kohli & Steve Smith

Virat Kohli & Steve Smith are one of the best batsmen in the the world cricket at the moment. They have achieved many records in the International cricket & they are often being compared by the cricket fans for their stats & game play. A small incident during the match of India vs Australia in World Cup 2019, shows how they respect each other. When the fans at the stadium were ripping into Smith & David Warner, calling them cheats. But Kohli was quick to ask the fans to stop the chants and instead asked them to applaud them.

Speaking in the latest episode of Star Sport's Cricket Connected show, Steve Smith said that,"I have known Virat Kohli for a long time. Since 2007, I reckon, when he went up to the academy in Brisbane. I actually wasn't a part of in-take then, but I was kind of up there, doing bowling and stuff."

Smith further added that,"He was there, we had some nice chats off the field. We had a couple of run-ins in the early days on the field. Those things happen when you are playing for your team and your emotions sometimes go out of control."

"But he's a 'terrific guy', he's done terrific things with India. As an ambassador of the game. He's getting better and better with each game, which is the scary gaming."

Smith said that he is excited about the upcoming series of India vs Australia series in December. He said that,"I am so excited. It has the potential to be an all time great series. You see guys like Jasprit Bumrah, who has come on heaps and bounds, he's an incredible bowler. Mohammad Shami has got better and better. Ishanth Sharma has the experience."

"There are couple of India bowlers who could probably just get over here as well. Both sides have some quality spinners as well. This series has the making of an all time great series and I can't wait for it." he added.
