Recently Virat Kohli and former South African cricketer AB de Villiers interacted with each other on YouTube channel. Various issues arise there. They discuss everything from IPL to current cricket including the ups and downs of their cricketing life. Former India captain Virat Kohli feels that IPL has changed world cricket a lot.
He said, ‘IPL has changed many things in world cricket. There is no doubt that cricket is competitive now. But IPL has helped in changing the sledging and bad behavior of opposition cricketers on the field. Each team plays its game with the same aggression as before. But mutual respect for both groups has grown enormously.
This former Indian captain is well known for his aggressive nature on the field. To that Virat Kohli said, ‘The things which used to be very fast and the things which used to create tension between the teams, have come down a lot. I am speaking from my experience this year. “I think it’s heading towards a beautiful thing,” he said. Tournaments like the World Cup add to the excitement, so I think it is good to have camaraderie among cricketers.
King Kohli scored a century in Test cricket after three years. During this long period, he had to face various types of criticisms. For some time his place in the first XI was also in question. However, he gave a befitting reply to the criticism by scoring a century against Australia in the last Test match. Regarding scoring a century, he said, ‘I was not satisfied with myself by scoring a half-century. I tried to extend that run. After scoring a century, I feel a bit calmer.
Meanwhile, India will take on Australia in the third and final ODI of the series on Wednesday in Chennai. All eyes will be on Virat Kohli in the match. The series is currently tied at 1-1. The ODI series will be won by the team that wins today’s match.
