Prior to Australia’s limited-overs tour to India, Virat Kohli was asked who he thinks the biggest threat in the opposition camp is and he singularly pointed towards Marcus Stoinis. He said “We obviously expect a stiff competition overall from the Australian team but if I had to single out one player that can make more impact that would be Marcus Stoinis. He’s come around really well during the BBL and he’s making standout performances on a consistent basis. You can see he’s grown in confidence and he’s definitely going to be a very important player for them.”

Now, when Marcus Stoinis was asked about this, he replied in a funny way. He said “Yeah, I think the likes of Nathan Lyon and Patty (Cummins) didn’t like that I was the biggest threat. I think they got a bit jealous.”

Now as ICC world cup 2019 is near, reporters are asking player questions regarding world cup also. Stoinis told reporters on the sidelines of a Royal Challengers Bangalore training session “I think everyone is really confident. To win eight games in a row away from home was very important for us (Australia has got eight back-to-back victories). We needed it. We had lost a lot of games over the last year or so. It’s good timing. Everyone started to believe in each other and we started to play well as a team. From the outside, it might look like it happened all of a sudden, but it also shows that the game of cricket is only about minor details. Even in the time we were losing, we learnt a lot, started getting closer in a lot of games.”

On asked how he is feeling about David Warner and Steven Smith return in team, he said “It is a massive boost. People have stepped up in the last few months and we have started winning games consistently. It all adds to the mixture and definitely adds to a World Cup winning combination.”
