India’s heart-breaking defeat at the hands of New Zealand in the semi-final of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 tournament is still fresh in memories of many. The ongoing series against the Kiwis present the Indian team a golden opportunity to avenge the loss.
However, Indian skipper Virat Kohli outright spurned the notion of ‘revenge’ as he shared his admiration for Kiwi cricketers. In the media interaction session, the 31-year old said that all of the Indian cricketers enjoy the company of New Zealand’s players. Kohli further lauded the conduct of Kiwi players on the field as he said that it is just about being competitive on the field against Blackcaps.
“Even if you think of revenge, you can’t get into that as these guys are so nice. We get along really well with all the Kiwi cricketers. It is just about being competitive on the field. Kiwis give absolutely everything to win, but they aren’t nasty and they don’t do unacceptable things on field”- said by Virat Kohli.
