Bravo dubs Kholi as 'Cristiano Ronaldo of cricket'

Bravo's remarks to compare Indian cricket team skipper with legendary Portuguese footballer came during the launch event of Virat Kohli's signature head gear with a lifestyle brand, He admired the Indian skipper saying; "Virat actually played under-19 (cricket) with my younger brother Darren Bravo".

Kohli does not have a good record in England in Tests, managing just 134 runs in five Tests at 13.40 during the 2014 tour.

Both Kohli and De Villiers stood up and delivered for their sides when the two nations met earlier this year, which the Proteas triumphed 2-1.

He wants to avoid a repeat of his poor form on English soil and plans to train there, to prepare for India's tour, starting July.

While Virat Kohli leads RCB in Indian cricket domestic extravaganza-Indian Premier League, Portuguese national football team captain Cristiano Ronaldo is the emperor of Santiago Bernabeu as he headlines the attack of 12-times European champions and current La Liga holders- Real Madrid. "It's just about giving yourself more opportunity, to get used to the conditions that you are not used to".

Team India will be touring England (from late June to September) where the team will play a five-Test series, three T20Is and a three-match ODI series.

Surrey are the favourites to gain the Indian's services for a short while and have enquired about the batsman's availability. "If we as a team think like the people outside then there is no point playing the game", Kohli explained in an exclusive chat with Times Now.

"If players get an opportunity then why not", he said of Indians, taking whatever chances they get to hit overseas.

Former England paceman Bob Willis has said that England risked losing Test matches, at home, if "we're accommodating all these visiting players". After losing the Test series 1-2, the Men in Blue came back to win the One-day worldwide series 5-1 and then clinched the Twenty20 global series 2-1 against South Africa.
