This statement given on India-Pakistan match
Regarding the India-Pakistan match, Virat Kohli said that it can be a big game for the fans, but we are taking it like any normal match. When Yuzvendra Chahal was not selected in the T20 team, Virat said that it was a difficult decision, we wanted to give a chance to Rahul Chahar. He has bowled well recently, that’s why Rahul’s upper hand was heavy.
Virat Kohli said that our focus is on winning the World Cup, so there is no focus on what is happening about the coach-staff. We are maintaining a good atmosphere in the dressing room so that we can focus on the World Cup.
Virat Kohli, playing his last World Cup as T20 captain, also talked about the form of Indian players. Regarding Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Virat Kohli said that we are not worried about him, Bhuvi’s economy is fantastic.
Virat said that in the match we played against Hyderabad in the IPL, Bhuvneshwar bowled a wonderful last over against AB de Villiers. In such a situation, the experience that Bhuvneshwar brings with full fitness is special for us.
On the return of Ravichandran Ashwin in the T20 World Cup team, Virat Kohli said that Ashwin has improved a lot in white ball cricket. He is bowling well even against big players, so having Ashwin with him is very beneficial. The pair of Ashwin-Jadeja is performing better together, which will give good results for the team.
