Vaas, former Sri Lankan bowler, was quoted by Mid-Day as saying, "If I were to bowl to Virat in this form, I am sure he would have hit me for six sixes in an over. He is in a different class. He is commanding the game and dominating the bowlers. Virat wants to be like Sachin (Tendulkar) and one day even get better than him."
