Washington Sundar has been playing alongside Virat Kohli for a few years now. The Indian all-rounder has been part of RCB since 2018. Sundar recently opened up on his bond with Virat Kohli. In an interaction with ANI, Washington Sundar revealed that playing under Kohli has made him a better cricketer.
“I think Virat has been helping me a lot on different occasions. The fact that I have been playing closely with him for the last 4-5 years has done wonders for me. I can see him closely and see how he goes about different scenarios both on and off the field, what he does to be what he is right now, so many things I have learned from him over the years, that has definitely helped me become a better cricketer,” said Sundar.
“The fact that I got to play with him, someone of his stature could help you out in different phases of life, it definitely gets the best out of any cricketer. The last four months have been good for me and I hope I have a better season going ahead. It takes a lot for a captain to throw the ball to a finger spinner especially in the first six overs.
“I think I really need to be thankful to the captain, getting success from such a situation has made me a better cricketer and also it has given me a lot of confidence. In that sense, Virat has really helped me and it has also helped me to evolve as a T20 bowler. I have been loving the challenge of bowling in the first six overs,” he added.
