first_imgSunrisers Hyderabad skipper David Warner on Monday revealed the text messages that he has exchanged with Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper Virat Kohli on their battle for the Orange Cap in the ongoing season of the Indian Premier League. (Full IPL Coverage)The battle between the bat and the ball in the tournament so far has been a one-sided affair with the batsmen enjoying the time of their lives on flat-batting pitches around the country.Kohli currently leads the batting charts with Warner and Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma closing in with each game.Kohli has 433 runs from 7 matches with an unbeaten 100 as his highest score and an average of 72.16. Warner is second on the list with 386 runs from as many games with a top-score of 92. Rohit is three runs behind the Aussie in third spot.”He (Kohli) texted me yesterday saying he was coming for the Orange Cap. My reply was I am going to come back and get it from you,” Warner told India Today in an exclusive chat.Warner’s consistent run in the IPL has been one of the highlights of the tournament so far. He has hit five half-centuries for Hyderabad at an average of 77.20 and a strike rate of over 160.The 29-year-old said he was hungry for runs after enduring a tough time with the bat for Australia in the ICC World T20.”I think it’s about clearing my mind and being fresh. I felt I had a very disappointing T20 World Cup. I wanted to come here (India) and show what I am capable of. It’s about digging deep, backing myself and putting as many runs as possible for my team.”advertisementApart from being terrific with the willow in hand, the one thing which is also common between Warner, Kohli and Rohit is that all three cricketers are brilliant fielders as well. Warner is known to be one of the fittest cricketers around and he rates Kohli in very high regard when it comes to his fielding prowess.”India’s fielding has been exceptional in the last one year or so. He has got his guys in the right frame of mind. I think it’s under him that they are striving for greatness on the field. Most teams are winning matches these days with their fielding. Virat has done very well in that aspect.””He is probably one of the hardest trainers I have ever seen. He is always at the gym. He is in there stretching, yoga, weights, power lifting and cricket training. On top off all that, he carries the weight of the nation as captain.”It is hard not to be in awe of Kohli, the young batting superstar from Delhi who has made a big name for himself in the cricketing world in such a short span of time.His golden run during India’s 2014-15 Test series in Australia, where he made four centuries in as many matches, has made the Aussies stand up and take notice. Warner is among the many who believe that Kohli will be an immensely successful cricketer in all formats of the game.”He is an exceptional talent. He has played over a hundred ODIs, and is going to play more than 100 Tests as well. He has got an exceptional knowledge of cricket. He is a great leader,” Warner summed up.last_img read more
