Chennai Super Kings (CSK) all-rounder Dwayne Bravo has compared the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) skipper with football legend Cristiano Ronaldo. Both the players are considered as greats of their respective games.

Bravo, praising Virat, said he tells his younger brother Darren Bravo to follow the footmark of Indian stalwart. His brother and Virat both have played Under-19 cricket together. 

"It's (equation with Virat is) good. Virat actually played under-19 (cricket) with my younger brother Darren and I always tell my brother that Virat is a person he shall look up to, I am not saying that because I am here," 34-year-old said.

"I actually asked Virat to talk to my brother personally about batting, about cricket. When I see Virat, I see Cristiano Ronaldo of cricket.

"For me as a cricket player to play against him and to watch him play when he represents India, even RCB, I admire the talent that he has, the passion he has for the game, for the sport when he plays. So hats off to him and he deserves all the achievement," he added.

The Caribbean cricketer was present at the launch of the New Era's signature headwear collection designed and conceptualized by Kohli himself. The Indian cricket team skipper was present there too.

Kohli revealed he had visited the New Era office during Champions Trophy. "I was very involved (in the cap designing process). I took out time when we were playing the Champions Trophy in England to go to the office (of New Era) and meet with the team and I spent about three hours there going through all the materials of caps and designs," Kohli remarked.
