"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 quoted as saying.
Richards is largely acknowledged as the most destructive batsman to have ever played.
