Brett Lee praises Virat Kohli, gives his thoughts on India-New Zealand series
India will take on New Zealand in three Test series in the upcoming home season. After that, India will play Test series against England and Australia and play total 13 matches.
Before the Test series against New Zealand begins, former Australian fast bowler Brett Lee heaped praise on India’s Test skipper Virat Kohli.
“It will be an amazing contest. It will be a test of character and strength to play 13 Tests for Indian cricketers. India can achieve greatness, Virat Kohli will change the structure of the team, he will rub off his qualities on his colleagues. It’s a well balanced team. Kohli is a great leader, the team respects him,” Lee said.
Indian bowling will play the key role in Test series. “The Indian batting line-up is all sorted out, but the bowling is going to be the key in this season. The bowlers will be the ones who will win the series for India,” Lee told.
Lee also said that he always found the Indian conditions to be the toughest to play in. “For me personally, India has been the toughest place to play cricket in. If you can manage to win a series here (India), then you have achieved greatness. I’m guessing Steve Smith shares the same thought. The Ashes is a different experience, but conquering India is everything for a foreign player,” he said.
“Australia versus India is one of the most important series, Ashes is also big. If they can do well in India they will go back with a lot of satisfaction. It’s an opportunity for Kohli, (Joe) Root, (Kane) Williamson and (Steve) Smith to showcase their skills,” he added.
