“Virat actually played under-19 (cricket) with my younger brother Darren Bravo. I always tell Darren that Virat is a good person he should look up to. I’m not saying that because I’m here, I actually had Virat talk to my brother personally about batting and cricket,” Bravo said at the launch event of Virat Kohli’s signature head gear with lifestyle brand New Era.

Besides performing on his new song Run D World, Bravo also showered praises for Kohli who was also present at the event. “When I see Virat, I see the Cristiano Ronaldo of cricket. That’s the level at which he is at. For me, as a cricket player to play against him, and to watch him play when he represents India or even RCB (Royal Challengers Bangalore) is admire the talent that he has, the passion and talent that he has for the sport and the way he plays. Hats off to him! He deserves all the accolades that he’s getting,” Bravo concluded.
