Australian flamboyant opener, David Warner has said that he seems no point in sledging in Indian captain Virat Kohli. Earlier, Matthew Wade had said that he will not like to indulge in a war of words with either Virat Kohli or team India as they thrive on it more often than not.
Virat Kohli, on the other hand, as everybody knows, is never away from on-field spats. He has had a lot of verbal altercations with various opposition players over the years. During India’s recent visit to the Kangaroos, Kohli went straight at Tim Paine, the Aussie Test captain and has been fierce with his jibes and his bat.
Now, David Warner has said that he will also look to avoid any on-field altercation with the Indian skipper as he seems there is no point in doing so.
David Warner Opens Up On Sledging Virat Kohli
“Virat Kohli is not a person to be poked and no point poking the bear,” Warner was quoted as saying by India Today.
“It would be very surreal playing against India without the crowd. I want to be selected and be part of that series. Last time we were not bad but we were beaten by a good team and their bowling was relentless,” David Warner further said.
