After the series win over Australia, the Indian captain Virat Kohli delivered a volatile press conference. Kohli had insisted that after the hard-fought series his perspective have changed. And he is no longer friends with the Aussies.
Kohli’s change of perspective likely to have come after a number of heated arguments between the two side. He, however, has now insisted that his comments in the presser have been blown out of proportion.
“My answer at the post match conference has been blown way out of proportion,” Kohli said in a series of Tweets.
“I did not categorically say the whole Australian team but only a couple of individuals,” he added. “I continue to be in good terms with the few guys I know and who I’ve played with at RCB and that doesn’t change.”
Before the 1st Test, Kohli had said that he knows a number of Aussie players. He, meanwhile, had insisted that he is aware “where to draw the line of friendship”. And insisted that friendship doesn’t matter on the field.
“As I said, in the heat of the battle you want to be competitive but I’ve been proven wrong,” Kohli had said. “The thing I said before the first Test, that has certainly changed and you won’t hear me say that ever again.”
