Indian skipper Mithali Raj was in awe of her men's counterpart Virat Kohli saying that the way he had transformed his game since his debut was commendable.
Talking to TNIE, Mithali praised Kohli's hard work and discipline. She also called him a role model for youngsters.
"He is one player that every youngster should look up to. It shows the kind of discipline he has whether it is maintaining his fitness and playing so many matches in a year, it is very tough on the body. As cricketers we do understand, how much toll it takes to play all formats of the game."
"And continuously to be on the tour for the last few years is very commendable. He has been very consistent because there have been players who play well for three-four years and then there is a dip but Virat Kohli is trying to maintain the form and that is something everything cricketer should learn from," said Mithali.
