That Virat Kohli is one of the best batsmen in the world, is not debatable. But, if his latest nets session is anything to go by, he is just striving to set the bar higher and higher.

In a video posted by Cricket Australia on Twitter, the Indian captain can be seen hitting a few, off the middle off his willow. Ah! That sweet sound of the bat.

“India skipper Virat Kohli in the Adelaide Oval nets today (watch with the sound on),” read the caption.

And some of the former cricketers couldn’t agree more.

“You think his middling a few,” ex-South Africa speedster replied, whilst former England all-rounder Paul Collingwood wrote, “Don’t think it used to sound like that off my bat.”

England wicket-keeper Sam Billings had a simple reaction to the video, calling Kohli’s knocks “ridiculous”.

Meanwhile, Kohli and company are scheduled to take on Australia in the first of the four-match Test series that begins in Adelaide on Thursday.

And, the visitors are not taking the hosts lightly despite absence of some star players.

“I personally don’t think any Australian side is vulnerable at home,” Kohli said. “You definitely cannot take any side for granted, more so Australia in Australia.

“Because whatever happened regardless of all things that have gone by, the skill level is still there.”
