Checkout What Kohli Said About Today’s Match
Kohli was asked if the lack of batting time for middle and lower order, after three victorious games, could create pressure, Kohli said “No, that’s not a concern. Obviously, as a batsman you want to finish off games, so you are not necessarily going to get out thinking my middle-order hasn’t got any game time.” “So, given an opportunity, everyone would like to finish games convincingly and, as I said everyone is batting well.”
According to Kohli, lack of batting time would encourage Hardik Pandya and Kedar Jadhav to deliver their best if the team is in troublesome situation. Kohli said “In the practice games, everyone has got a hit, and we know Kedar and Hardik are playing really well at the moment, so we are not bothered at all. Rather Kedar and Hardik are looking for an opportunity if the team is in a bit of trouble.
He added “I am sure those two guys are going to step up and take the team through along with Ash (Ravichandran Ashwin) and Jaddu (Ravindra Jadeja) as well. Those guys are actually waiting for opportunities, and that’s a great mindset to have.” “They are not sitting comfortably thinking ‘oh these guys are going to do the job’. They are actually prepared if a crisis situation comes in ‘we want to be the match winners’ is the energy they are creating,”
Kohli with his present team members has played a numerous highly stressful games in ICC tournaments, but according to him on a new day that will count for little. Kohli said “Yeah, we have played these kinds of games before quite a few times but there are no guarantees in this sport. As we have seen in the league stages as well, a lot of teams have surprised the opposition, and we are certainly not taking anything for granted.
“We will use whatever momentum we have gained in this tournament to execute what we want to. We are not going to go according to past results and what we have done in the past tournaments. Going into a big game like this, we are going to treat it as how we treated the last game, and our mindset does not differ.”
Kohli made it clear the Indian team will remain unchanged against Bangladesh in 2nd semi-final, He said, “We gave a lot of people chances in the practice games and he (Umesh) did bowl well in that game but that does not mean that you necessarily play someone who has done well against a particular opposition in a practice game.”
Virat Kohli was extremely happy with the performance of Ashwin against South Africa, he said, “I think Ashwin was brilliant in the last game, and I don’t see any good reason to change that. The team played really well. It was a complete performance, and I certainly don’t think that there is any need to change anything.”
Kohli showed his respect against Bangladesh as an opposite team, he said, “It is no surprise anymore to anyone that they are doing really well, and they have really improved their cricket, and it is a credit to their set-up and the kind of players they have now who are taking more responsibility.””Bangladesh is a very dangerous side on their day and everyone realises that. Bangladesh has taken huge strides. I mean they are in the top-eight sides in the world. So yeah, they are a very competitive side,”
It seems like 2015 World Cup quarter-final controversy has imprinted an impact on Kohli’s mind, Kohli said, “It’s been 24 months!!! I seriously don’t think that anyone is thinking about that game. We have had so many matches against each other since then, and we are certainly not going out to prove a point to anyone.” “We just want to play good cricket as a side. Our opposition could be anyone. We are not really thinking about what’s happened in the past or things that go on at the international level.”
