Is India's Cricket World Cup Squad Finalised? Here's What Kohli, Shastri Reveal

Is India's Cricket World Cup Squad Finalised? Here's What Kohli, Shastri Reveal

If they want to play a certain way, we will reciprocate in that way, that is how cricket goes. Actually, that's the best place to bat. "I don't know the reason so I can't comment on it", he said about Cricket Australia's policy. "But when it comes to getting engaged in an argument on the field or a fight as people want to call it excitedly, I have been completely ok with playing without the altercation".

"These are very personal things that happen within the team environment and things that conveniently need to be put out there are put out there", Kohli said.

Referring to his aggressive image from the past and the tendency to react instantly to provocation, he admitted: "Those were very immature things I used to do and feed on in the early days of my career, so that I get pumped up and don't feel the pressure".

The resting of key all-format players such as captain Virat Kohli, injuries to allrounders Hardik Pandya and Kedar Jadhav. managing the workload of fast bowlers Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, and the search for batsmen to occupy middle-order slots have all contributed to India testing a wide pool of players. When questioned about perceptions of Shastri being Kohli's "Yes Man", the Indian captain laughed it off. That's the most freaky thing I have heard.

Kohli took over as captain of the Test team for the first time during Shastri's tenure as the Team Director and both of them developed a good rapport.

Washington contributed more than a third of the total funding to the 29-member alliance in 2017. "We're protecting everybody. He doubled down on that call on Tuesday when he made reference to the French surrender to the Nazis in World War II.

"He (Shastri) will finish one day, I'll finish one day but Indian cricket stays here. So you don't find the need for these things at all".

Stating that he has matured as an individual over a period of time, Kohli said, "I am very happy within my own space, so on a personal level, I don't find any need to go and find these things anymore". And he'll tell you if there is something that doesn't need to be done, then it doesn't need to be done.

"The contribution that he has brought to the table ever since we began building this team is that he has made us believe we belong to this level. I don't think there is anyone who has said no to me more than him (Ravi Shastri) in Indian cricket", Kohli said.

India play no further ODIs for the rest of this year, but they end 2018 joint-third among the teams that have featured the most players.

"It is all about the man-management, which Ravi bhai has done brilliantly for the time that he has been in the team", Kohli added.
