“I Have the Utmost Respect for Virat Kohli,” Says Michael Clarke

Former Australian captain Michael Clarke said that he has the utmost respect for Virat Kohli because the Indian captain attended Phillip Hughes' funeral along with Ravi Shastri and Rohit Sharma in December 2014 ahead of their tour of Australia.

Clarke said that the Indian team didn’t need to agree to the change of schedule for the four-match Test series because of Hughes’ funeral, but they did.

The 35-year-old, who is a part of the commentary team in the ongoing Test series between India and Australia, said that Virat Kohli has the love, passion and desire to win at all costs.

The third Test between India and Australia begins at Ranchi on Thursday.
