The Indian captain Virat Kohli believes that his some innings failure not affected him and he is also ignored that type person, who criticize him during his bad form. He gave that statement after the victory over Sri Lankan cricket team in the first test of India’s tour of Sri Lanka.
Kohli said,”I wasn’t looking at things from people’s point of view. I think people on the outside start counting the number of innings when a batsman doesn’t score well. But for us as batsmen or anyone playing in the eleven, it’s about what the team wants in that particular situation.”
Virat Kohli scored his 17th century in the first Test. India won the test by a huge margin of 304 runs. Shikhar Dhawan was player of the match for his excellent batting in the first innings.
Kohli also said,”I think the second innings required us to play a bit more positively and I am glad I was able to do that along with Abhinav Mukund. It helped to get us enough time to get the opposition out and put enough runs on the board for us to feel comfortable.”
“I mean I certainly wasn’t looking at how many innings I haven’t scored, because when you are playing all formats you are not thinking which format you have not scored runs in how many innings. You cannot utilise so much energy in that but it always feels good to score runs especially when the team wins,” he added.
The both opener batsman Abhinav Mukund and Shikhar Dhawan played brilliantly. But Mukung might be dropped in the second test, if KL Rahul will be available for the game. The second test between these two teams are starting from the 3rd August.
