Bengaluru, November 9: Satya Nadella, the Microsoft CEO, is a cricket nut. Often, he uses cricketing similes in his speech, even ones that are deeply technical. But he seems to be a huge fan of one particular Indian cricketer. Guess who? Rohit Sharma.

Nadella said Rohit Sharma reminds him of another champion cricketer - VVS Laxman.

"I love watching Rohit Sharma play, you know that follow through of his, his cover drives. He reminds me of VVS Laxman. When he (Rohit) is on song, I think he is just glorious to watch," said Nadella.

Ritija Sajdeh, Rohit's wife, highlighted Nadella's compliment through her twitter handle and Rohit was quick to thank Nadella for his words.
