Virat Kohli has rated Australian Steve Smith as the best Test batter of this generation, considering his consistency and "unbelievable" average of scoring runs.

Kohli's comments on Smith would be a huge accolade on the Australian as it came from another batting stalwart of the current generation.

"According to me, Steve Smith is the best Test player of this generation. He has displayed that, his adaptability is absolutely brilliant. You take any cricketer of this generation," Kohli said ahead of the ongoing World Test Championship final between India and Australia.

"Everybody knows his record, in 85-90 Tests, he has an average of 60 which is quite unbelievable. The consistency and impact with which he scores runs, I haven't seen any Test player doing that in last 10 years. It is credit to his skill and temperament," Kohli Star Sports.

Coming into the WTC final, the 34-year-old Smith has scored 8792 runs from 96 Tests at an average of 59.80 with 30 hundreds and 37 fifties.
