India vs Windies 2018: I’ll dive Six Times in an Over for my Team: Virat Kohli
Team India skipper Virat Kohli recently talked about his commitment to his side following his 37th century during the second ODI against Windies at Visakhapatnam.
Kohli, moreover, also became the fastest cricketer to scale 10000 ODI runs in just 205 innings. He went past another legend Sachin Tendulkar, who had the record achieved in 269 innings.
Speaking to bcci.tv about his personal milestone, Virat Kohli admitted that it is a great feeling. He also noted that these statistics don’t matter much but it is a special feeling.
“I feel really grateful, I feel really blessed. I never imagined I’d get to see this stage in my one-day career. These things do not matter much, but to understand you have come this far in your career, playing for 10 years, is something quite special to me.
I love the sport so much and you want to play it more and more, and that for me is the most important thing. I am just happy that I have been able to play for this long and hopefully, for many more years to come,” Virat Kohli added.
Will dive six times for my team
The single biggest reason behind Virat Kohli’s unbelievable consistency is his process and in that process, personal glory moments have no place. He also admitted that all his energies are channelled to help the team’s cause.
“It is a great honour to represent my country. Even after 10 years, I don’t feel I am entitled to anything here. If I have to dive six times in an over, I will do it for the team. That is my duty and that is why I am selected to play for my country and that is a part of my job. It is not about doing anyone a favour or not showing anyone you are committed.
It is purely about gaining an extra run for your team. The focus has to be that precise and that much finer at that moment. You have to push for that extra run rather than thinking I am tired or mentally not there. That’s my only intent to do things that my team needs all the time and helping the team in any way possible,” Virat Kohli concluded.
