Today, India have whitewash South Africa in the three-match test series, and Virat Kohli becomes the first captain to whitewash South Africa in a Test series. After winning the test series, Indian captain attended the press conference. When a reporter asked Virat Kohli on MS Dhoni’s retirement in the press conference, Virat Kohli funnily replied this question.
“He (Dhoni) is here in the dressing room, come say hello to him,” the Indian captain Kohli said before the conference room burst into laughter.
“I congratulated him (Ganguly). It’s great that he has become BCCI President. But he’s not spoken to me about that (MS) yet. He will get in touch with me when he has to. I am sure I will go and meet him when he tells me to,” the Indian skipper said at the post-match press conference.
Need to have five centers to keep Test cricket alive: Virat Kohli
“Look you gonna keep Test cricket alive. I totally agree with the fact that we should have five-Test centres at max. It can’t be sporadic and spread over so many places where people turn up or not,” the Indian captain said.
“In my opinion, we should have five-Test centers. Period. Test cricket, teams coming to India should know we are going to play at these five venues, kind of people that are gonna come to watch. That becomes a challenge already when you are leaving shores. Because we go to any place, we know we are having Test matches at these venues. This is what the pitch is gonna offer,” added Kohli.
At the start of the next month, India will play against Bangladesh in a bilateral series at home. Virat Kohli may be rested for the T20I series against Bangladesh.
