Virat Kohli was back in action last night after a fortnight away from cricket due to his wedding formalities.
Ravi Shastri and Virat Kohli addressed the media before leaving for the South African tour. The duo were in high spirits about India’s chances in South Africa, as they felt that the Indian team had the required balance and were equipped with the right kind of skill to take on South Africa in their own den.
While most of the discussion was centred around the South African tour, one fine reporter did bring the wedding angle in, which was tackled to perfection by Kohli.
The reporter wanted to know if it would be difficult for Virat to ‘switch on’ right after all the wedding shenanigans.
“Not difficult at all (transitioning from the emotions I experienced on my personal front to my professional life),” said Virat Kohli.
“I was away for something much more important. This has remained a special moment for both me and Anushka. Switching back to cricket now won’t be difficult. I’ve played cricket in the past, know about the assignments and it’s not something new which I’m experiencing. Cricket is in my blood.” Kohli added.
“I was away for three weeks but I’ve kept training to prepare myself for the South Africa tour. I’m mentally very well prepared,” Virat concluded.
The Indian team has already departed for South Africa and will be vying to put up a strong performance in Protea Land.
The first test begins on the 5th of January in Cape Town.
