“For me, Kohli is the god of cricket when it comes to the Indian cricket team. If Indian cricket has become aggressive, they think of winning then it’s because of Kohli. Everyone has a different perspective. I don’t think with the glass as half-empty. Everyone goes through a phase in their career where people do things out of passion and aggression,”
“The more you mature, the settled you get. I was an aggressive child growing up as I was a martial artist. I don’t believe what Naseeruddin Shah remarked about Virat. The Australians have always believed that the Indians are underdogs and given it to us. And we are the most talented as far as the pace bowling contingent is concerned. Moreover, our bench stretch is also pretty strong,”
