Former England cricketer Kevin Pietersen hails India’s skipper Virat Kohli’s passion for the longest format of the game. The Indian skipper has time and again expressed his fondness for the longest format of the game and how he cherishes his time playing in the whites.

In a column for the Betway Insider, Kevin Pietersen asserted that Virat Kohli’s enthusiasm and intensity is an indication of how much test cricket means to him. The former England cricketer wrote:

“Knowing Virat Kohli the way that I do, I know the huge impetus he puts on following in the footsteps of his heroes. His heroes are Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, and other legends of Test match cricket. You can see by his enthusiasm, intensity, and the way he rallies his troops. Test cricket still means everything to him.”

“Kohli knows that to be considered a legend of the game, he needs to deliver in this format as well as in T20. That’s why he puts so much importance on this format and at a time when Test cricket needs all the love it can get, how good is it to see a global superstar so passionate about it,” Pietersen further wrote.

It’s amazing for Test cricket that India are so vocal and passionate about the format: Kevin Pietersen

Kevin Pietersen was impressed with the Indian team’s win against England at the Lord’s cricket ground. The visitors defeated England by 151 runs to go one up in the five-test match series. Pietersen stated that if the rain hadn’t played spoilsport in the first test, India would have been 2-0 up. He wrote,

“It’s very difficult for subcontinental teams to come to England and perform. But they (India) would probably be 2-0 up after two matches if it weren’t for the rain at Trent Bridge. The way that Mohammed Siraj bowled on day five summed it up – intensity, heart and quality. It’s amazing for Test cricket that India, who are the number one brand in the game, are so vocal and so passionate about it. It all bodes well for the format.”
