IND vs AUS: Nathan Lyon lauds Virat Kohli as ‘best player in the world’ alongside his mate Steve Smith

Australian off-spinner Nathan Lyon has given the highest praise for Indian captain Virat Kohli describing him as “the best player in the world’ along with his national team-mate and former captain Steve Smith, ahead of the India versus Australia series to kick start in Sydney towards the end of this month.

Lyon went onto say, “I believe he (Virat Kohli) is the best player in the world along with Steve Smith. It’s disappointing for the series. You want to play against the best players in the world.” Nathan Lyon expressed his disappointment after the news broke out about Virat Kohli missing the last 3 test matches of the series as he has been granted paternity leave by the BCCI to witness the birth of his first child.
