Virat Kohli has set a standard in international cricket with his running between the wickets. He named former Indian captain MS Dhoni and Royal Challengers Bangalore teammate as the quickest runners between the wickets in international cricket.

“Of course, its not even a question, I have been asked this question before, AB (De Villiers) has by far been the fastest I have run with between wickets, the only other guy I had so much coordination and understanding with was MS (Dhoni). Now I don’t know about the speeds between the wickets, but with him and MS I would not even have to call,” said Kohli.

“Best atmosphere I have experienced, the IPL final in 2016 was a very special day, it was very very intense, but above that is the World Cup final in 2011 in Mumbai, it was an unbelievable atmosphere. I have never experienced anything like that till 23rd October against Pakistan at the MCG. That night was something else, it was more than a sporting experience,” Kohli added.

He also talked about the worst runner between the wickets, Kohli named Test specialist Cheteshwar Pujara. Kohli made a narration about a story from India’s tour of South Africa in 2018. Pujara ran out his teammate in the first innings and then got himself out in the second innings.

Kohli also spoke about the best atmosphere to play under. He talked about the ODI World Cup final against Sri Lanka in 2011 and India’s T20 World Cup against Pakistan in the 2022 edition played at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground.
