Kane Williamson is one of the best batsmen in the world across all formats. But Black Caps captain wants to learn a few more tricks of the trade from none other than Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) skipper Kohli.

Williamson, who averages 34.53 in T20s and has a strike rate of 124.29, expressed his admiration for Kohli. The Kiwi batsman feels that Kohli's adaptability across all formats of the game makes him one of the best in the business.  

"He's a very good captain, and an extremely good, world-class cricketer. His ability to adapt throughout all formats is certainly something to admire. And, it's also something to learn from," Williamson told DNA.

"He's very aggressive in his mindset as a captain as well as a player. And he just showed that in the World T20."

Williamson, who is also a part of the Sunrisers Hyderabad squad, is yet to feature in the playing XI for IPL 2016. He has been suffering from a hamstring injury, but the recovery is well on course and he is hopeful of returning to action soon for his team, who are under pressure, as they have lost both their matches so far. 

"You always want to be playing. At the same time, though, while you are eager to play, your focus is very much on the team and wanting to help the team do well, whether it is by being in the playing XI or not. So that's where my focus is. I'll keep preparing and focusing on my game, and look forward to an opportunity when it comes around," Williamson said.

"As for my fitness, it is getting there. The recovery is going on nicely, so I'm certainly not far away from being body fit."
