New Delhi: While the cricket fraternity is finding new adjectives to describe the current form of Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper Virat Kohli, his team-mate Shane Watson too has lavishsed massive praise on him.

Speaking to CNN IBN on the sidelines of an event, the Australian all-rounder said, "What Virat has done and what he continues to do is up there with what anyone has done in the game or cricket."

Kohli recently slammed a record fourth ton in the current IPL season, which came against Kolkata Knight Riders in Match 48. What made the knock special was the fact that the Delhi batsman was playing with 7-8 stitches in his left hand.

Lauding the great show put up by these two batsmen, Watson said, "For me, there is no doubt that with AB and Virat we have two of the greatest players to have ever played the game; and Virat is still quite young, so he has got a lot of incredible cricket to go as well."
