New Delhi, May 17: Former India captain and legendary batsman Rahul Dravid lauded current India skipper Virat Kohli's leadership skills and illustrious career.
During a Star Sports, ReImagine Awards, the 46-year-old cricketer from Karnataka on Kohli's current form said, "Virat, you know he just keeps improving, keeps getting better. He is setting bars and standards that possibly we thought would never be achieved. Sachin (Tendulkar) scored 49-50 hundreds in one-day cricket. People thought that this would take a lot of time to achieve. Will it be ever achieved and now Virat is 10 away from it or close to it.
"One of the things about Virat is that even if he has a bad tour, it is not that he hasn't had bad tours, he had disappointing tour of England in 2014, he wasn't as successful in Australia first time around, but every time he goes back again he goes back as a better player. He sort of reinvents his game to a point where he is constantly improving," Dravid said.

Dravid, who led Team India in the World Cup 2007 in West Indies, said all the contests in the quadrennial extravaganza in England will be a highscoring ones and teams that will pick up wickets in the middle overs will be successful.
"It will be a high-scoring World Cup but it's the teams who pick up wickets in the middle overs who'll have a higher chance of restricting the opposition and winning," he added further.
When asked about the top four teams in the World Cup, the legendary batsman believes apart from India, hosts England, defending champions Australia, and South Africa or Pakistan would make it to the semis.
