India vs Australia 2017: “No Longer Friends With Australian Players,” Says Virat Kohli

Finally, the day came when what can be called as venomous series came to an end with India winning the fourth Test match and clinching the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. This was supposed to a heated series but no one would have expected of Australian skipper Steve Smith touching such a low as he used each and every weapon against Indian team and tried to sledge the home side.

Though in the end, he apologised for all what was said, but the relationship was already sour. The relations between the players of the two teams went from bad to worse, which forced Indian skipper Virat Kohli to say he is no more friends with the Australian counterparts,

“I’m really good friends with all these guys off the field. I know them really well, but I know where to draw the line of friendship. When you step onto the field, I could be playing against my big brother it wouldn’t matter,” Kohli said.

On speaking whether the relation will be same with Australian players, he replied,

“No, it has changed. I thought that was the case, but it has changed for sure. As I said, in the heat of the battle you want to be competitive but I’ve been proven wrong. The thing I said before the first Test, that has certainly changed and you won’t hear me say that ever again,” he added.

There were ‘N’ number of controversies in the series from the Australian players making fun of Kohli’s shoulder injury to caught abusing a player live on national television, Australian players touched a new low and Kohli was in no mood to let them go even when Steve Smith apologised for all their witty acts.
