KL Rahul is going to be brought back into action straightaway after his recovery from illness in spite of the decent performances of the two Indian openers who had played in Galle.


One of the openers Shikhar Dhawan had actually been named the player of the match there, while the other one Abhinav Mukund had also scored 80 odd in the second innings.

So it was believed that it would be quite tough for Virat and the Indian team management to drop any of them going ahead in the series.

But, Virat while addressing the press prior to the start of the Colombo test stressed that Rahul’s consistency in the past couldn’t be overlooked.

Virat reckons that it’s important to give a player a sense of security about his position in the XI especially if he has done well over a period of time.

If somebody loses form and subsequently loses his position, that’s okay, but, he shouldn’t lose his position because of external factors like injuries or illness. Continue reading 'KL Rahul back in action after Illness Recovery'»

KOHLI: FRIENDSHIP WITH AUSTRALIANS OVER

Virat Kohli has declared that the friendship with the Australians is over after their heated series in April left their relationships and friendships in tatters. The star player said that, while they were friends off the field, when the teams enter the area of battle all friendships end.

He says he is friends with the opponents off the field but added that the ill-tempered four-match series could change things. Kohli struggled to have much impact before he was forced to withdraw in the final Test due to injury, only for him to return strongly in his onslaught against the Aussies.

WIth him in the team, India were favourites on http://sports.williamhill.com/, but once he was withdrawn, India’s chances of victory tumbled.

“I’m really good friends with all these guys off the field. I know them really well, but I know where to draw the line of friendship. When you step onto the field, I could be playing against my big brother it wouldn’t matter,” he said ahead of the Test.

Kohli and fellow captain had it bad when Steve Smith breached the rule of looking towards the dressing room for tips before the DRS review. Kohli accused the Australian team of systematic impropriety, citing other times as well, in their review protocols.

There were a lot of accusations during the Tests. Kohli claimed the Australians had soiled the reputation of the physiotherapist that treated him when he injured his shoulder. The commentators from the Asian side claimed Gleen Maxwell was mocking them by clutching his right shoulder and Kohli repeated the gesture during the game.

After the game, Smith apologized for letting his “emotions falter a little bit throughout the series.”  Kohli is in no mood to forgive, even hitting out at the media for their criticism of his batting. He said that his bad experiences during the course of the series have made him rethink his friendships.

“No, it has changed. I thought that was the case, but it has changed for sure,” he said in response to questions if things remained cases of friendly rivalry.

“I thought that was the case, but it has changed for sure. As I said, in the heat of the battle you want to be competitive but I’ve been proven wrong. The thing I said before the first Test, that has certainly changed and you won’t hear me say that ever again,” he added.
