Williamson considers himself fortunate to play cricket alongside Kohli


New Zealand captain Kane Williamson considers himself fortunate to have played cricket alongside Indian captain Virat Kohli and revealed that he has been closely following Kohli’s journey from a young age.

Both Williamson and Kohli played in the 2008 ICC U19 World Cup in Malaysia, which was won by India and since then went on to become modern-day greats of the game.

“Yes, we are fortunate to play against each other. It has been great to meet at a young age and follow Kohli’s progress and his journey,” Williamson said in Star Sports’ Cricket Connected show.

“It’s been interesting, we’ve had to play against each other for a long period of time,” he added.

Williamson said he and Kohli have shared honest opinions about the game over the last few years despite having different on-field characters.

“But actually, probably over the last few years we just shared our views on the game, some honest thoughts and found some common grounds despite, perhaps, playing the game little bit differently in terms of physically and maybe our on-field characters I suppose,” he added.
