Kohli calls for batting improvement ahead of Australia tour

Kohli calls for batting improvement ahead of Australia tour

I can vouch for it because at a time when we all went through a really hard time in England in 2014 for me, and for a lot of other players, Shikhar Dhawan in 2015 as well, to be able to come out of that shell, to bring the best out of the players, he is the most important factor. "The whole combination has to come together to win the series and not just a Test match", Kohli stressed.

"But I think we have learnt those things enough".

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. "I don't think there is anyone who has said no to me more than him (Ravi Shastri) in Indian cricket", Kohli said.

"There are not too many games now: we have got eight good games in Australia and New Zealand and then five against Australia here".

Wary of the expectations and challenges ahead, Kohli, in the pre-departure press conference on Thursday in Mumbai, said the team has made progress over the previous overseas tours but added that there's still a a lot of room for improvement.

While the Australian team has undergone cultural change in wake of the sandpaper scandal in South Africa, Kohli - the world's best batsman who has enjoyed another stellar year - can still expect some verbal barbs. What happens is if there is a situation where we don't bat well as a team and we lose the game, that can dent you mentally. "The only motive is to take Indian cricket team forward", Virat said.

"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".

Steve Waugh also praised Indian skipper Virat Kohli and compared him with legends like Sachin Tendulkar and Brian Lara.

"I definitely believe our fitness levels are up, which is the most important thing in Australia because pitches can sometimes become very boring there", he added. That is what we are working towards because he finishes one day, I finish playing one day but Indian cricket stays here and we are contributing towards that. There hasn't been anyone who said no to me more than him in Indian cricket, honestly. "So 13 games. So we will try and play the best team at all times". He's one guy I can speak to and get an honest opinion - if something doesn't need to be done, he'll tell you. And man management is the most important thing at the level we play at. "So you don't find the need for these things at all and as you said they will not give it back", Kohli said.
