#1 Brad Hogg heaps praise on Virat Kohli
Former Australian cricketer Brad Hogg praised Virat Kohli for his performances on the field in the ongoing Test series. He also called him the "energy" of the team.
"Virat Kohli is the energy of this Indian team. He is their clear leader and they feed off him. You just see him on the field - his athleticism is different and he expects that from the Indian team," Hogg told PTI.
"And what he expects from the team, he does as well, so it is not as if he is telling the team what to do without leading from the front. He is actually leading from the front and asking his teammates to follow him," he added.
