IND vs AUS: “My Heart Was Pumping Because …”- Virat Kohli Reveals How He Tackled James Anderson During 2018 Test Series

Indian Cricket Team’s star batter Virat Kohli has been on a roll. The right-handed batter may have got out on a controversial LBW decision in the 2nd Test match of 1st innings but he played an invaluable knock of 44 runs on a treacherous pitch against Australia. It looked like Virat Kohli rediscovered his mojo in the Test format after dominating the terms in T20I & ODI formats.

The left-arm speedster Mitchell Starc would be hoping that he hits the form as making a comeback after injury won’t be easy at all. There are some reports that state that the pitch at Indore would be batting-friendly where pacers would be tested. The pair of Nathan Lyon- Mitchell Starc have got pretty good numbers and would be eager to assert their dominance.

Virat Kohli was having an interaction on RCB Podcast Season 2 and he spoke about the 2018 Test Series.

“My heart was pumping because all I could think of was the flashes of 2014. I walked in and there were about 35,000 people at the stadium and they all started booing the moment I entered the field.

Virat Kohli on facing James Anderson

Virat Kohli revealed how he tackled James Anderson after having a horrible 2014 Test Series.

“I remember James Anderson was the guy running with the ball, and I was like, what are the odds here I am facing the first ball from him again after four years. In my mind, I was like ‘please just play the first ball and he bowled it at the fourth stump and I left that ball’.” said Virat Kohli.

“I became calm after that first ball and then I got dropped at 22. I could have got out on 22 in that innings but I got 149 and I didn’t look back from there, so that’s when you realized that you just can’t sit there and crib about things that didn’t go right. There are a lot of things that went right. So much wait was lifted from my shoulder.” he added.
