Virat Kohli believes county stint will help him improve as a batsman

Virat Kohli says that he is keen to play county cricket to get used to the conditions on English soil, ahead of India's tour of the country, later, in 2018.

Kohli had a hard time in India's previous tour of England in 2014.

The RCB captain who scored an unbeaten 92 for his side against Mumbai Indians was the sole contributor as they ended on the losing side while chasing down a mammoth 214-run target.

West Indian Dwayne Bravo, who is now in India representing the Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League (IPL), has compared the Indian skipper to legendary footballer Cristiano Ronaldo.

Although Kohli will miss the one-off Test against Afghanistan, this move to play County Cricket is certainly one in the right direction as there is no doubt that his role in the Indian team, both as a batsman and as the captain, will be critical in England.

"It's (his equation with Virat is) good".

Facebook To Exclude Billion Plus People From GDPR Protection
Facebook is estimated to have almost 2 billion users, and the change will affect more than 70 percent of its total customer base. Facebook released a revised terms of service in draft form two weeks ago, and they are scheduled to take effect next month.

Kohli enjoyed a hugely successful 2017, being named ICC cricketer of the year and Wisden's leading cricketer of the year, while Forbes put his brand value above Barcelona star Lionel Messi on their Fab 40 list.

"Playing county cricket will help me improve my game", the 29-year-old was quoted as saying by NDTV.

"For me as a cricket player to play against him and to watch him play when he represents India, even RCB, I admire the talent that he has, the passion he has for the game, for the sport when he plays".

However, he is determined to improve his record in the country he has been found out in, and to that end, he has opened himself up to the possibility of playing county cricket in June. "So hats off to him and he deserve all the achievement", the West Indian all-rounder added.

Hailing the fitness and training of the top two ODI batsmen in the world, Australia's Woodhill, who has worked with both in the Indian Premier League (IPL), said Kohli's strength is his fitness and the extra sharpness it gives him, while de Villiers is all about training smart.
