Australia vs India 2018: A Cool, Calm Virat Kohli is Good for the Series – Ian Healy
Meanwhile, dealing with Kohli’s attitude has been a talking point ahead of the mega series. While Faf du Plessis urged the Aussies to be silent, former Aussie skipper Kim Hughes reckoned that the hosts should continue playing cricket the Australian way.
And now, Ian Healy is the latest to join the bandwagon saying that he has come a long way his first tour in 2011-12. Last year during Australia’s visit of India, Healy said that he lost respect for Virat Kohli. Kohli also hit back suggesting him to watch clips from his playing days.
A calmer Kohli, believes Healy, is good for the series and will set the tone for the series.
“He’s learned to play with more respect these days. I love the way he plays,” Healy told AAP. “Since then, I’ve felt he has played more respectfully to the ethics of the game and I think he’s been a lot calmer.
Which he should be, for a great player. He did also forget that just before saying that, I did say he is the best batsman I have ever seen. So selective memory but that’s OK. I’ve been happy with his improvement. Now our Australian team is going to show similar improvements,” Ian Healy added.
This will be Virat Kohli’s third visit to Australia, and the prolific run-scorer will look to continue with his form in the upcoming series.
