Kohli has King Viv’s vote of confidence

"I love watching Virat Kohli bat. He looks to me like an individual of my own heart. I love his aggression, and [he has] serious passion that I used to have. He reminds me of myself,"

Richards was known for his aggressive batting and was always out to attack and dominate the opposition. He spotted the same qualities in Kohli, saying "He is an individual who doesn't back off from confrontation; someone who can stand his ground under pressure. I love that as you can't teach these instinctive aspects."

Though Richards could not perform with the bat in the 1975 World Cup final he stamped his presence on the game with three major run outs to help West Indies lift the title. He said Kohli too channeled his aggression well while fielding, not restricting his contributions to the team to making runs with the bat. "Just like me, he loves the ball to come to him. He wants to dive, stop the runs. He is a livewire unlike some fielders, who would just dig a hole and dive in it rather than dive to stop the ball."

He says that Sachin Tendulkar still remains the best batsman in the Indian team but Kohli should learn to deal with the country’s high expectations from him. "I believe till Tendulkar is there, you need to give him respect," Richards said. "Obviously, once Sachin retires, you can bank on Kohli as he is young enough and has a lot of time on his side. He will only improve and continue to get better."
