The Indian captain Virat Kohli turns down the batting criticism which is thrown at him after an ordinary series in New Zealand. The right-handed batsman has only managed to score a single half-century in the series so far and scored 2 and 19 in the 2 innings of the first Test match at the Basin Reserve.
Kohli feels that he is batting well and sometimes the scores does not reflect one’s good batting form. "I am absolutely fine. I am batting really well. I feel that sometimes scores don't reflect the way you are batting and that's what can happen when you don't execute what you want to well," Kohli said.
Virat has not scored a century in the last 20 innings and it is the 3rd highest century less-streak for him. While Kohli is aiming to comeback strongly in the 2nd Test match, he also emphasized that he is more concerned about team’s result as compared to his batting.
"I am looking forward to contributing in a win in the next Test. It doesn't matter what I do. It's never been about my performance on tour or about how many runs I score. It's all about if the team wins, even a 40 is good. If the team loses, then even a 100 is irrelevant for me, and I'm going to stay in that mindset," he stated.
