Both Team India and Australia are gearing up for the upcoming World Test Championship at the Oval, England. However, both Virat Kohli and Josh Hazlewood will be in action against each other after playing for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the recently concluded IPL. However, some reports have also come out that Hazlewood might miss the final due to an injury setback.


But, ahead of this clash, Hazlewood has now opened up about some insights into Virat Kohli’s success. He heaped praises on Kohli’s fitness and also claimed that anyone can get inspired by seeing his work ethic. Listening to such comments, fans went crazy and shared their views on social media.

“He is always out there (training) first and leaves last” - Josh Hazlewood on Virat Kohli

While speaking to the Apex Council of Cricket, he said: "I think it’s probably how hard he works (that stands out). His fitness first of all - and then his skill work and batting and fielding in particular. He is always out there (training) first and leaves last … and the intensity he trains at all the time is at such a high level it drags everyone else along for the ride. That can leak on to the other players and improve them as well.”


He also praised Team India pacer, Mohammed Siraj who had a good IPL season with RCB. He said: "I was a bit late getting there (to RCB this year), but before then he was on fire. He is up there at the top of the wickets every time, and the economy rate was probably the thing as bowling at Chinnaswamy (RCB’s home ground) is impossible sometimes and he was going at six or six-and-a-half an over. His control was great and he is bowling well."

Regarding the upcoming match, he said: "It is a strange stat that as I think I have just played a lot of cricket against them. What is going to be interesting is playing them here in England. It is going to be interesting for both teams how they go about it and how different it is to playing them in Australia or in India as typically you only play them there. That is the exciting thing about it and everyone is looking forward to next week."
