Virat Kohli Reckons He Is Flexible And Learning How To Change Diapers Wasn’t That Tough

“Luckily as a cricketer over the years I have become someone who adapts well to the situations and Ravi bhai (coach Ravi Shastri) would know that using the crease and standing in and out all that kind of stuff… I have become very flexible.
“So, for me to understand how to change diapers and learning all those things wasn’t that tough because I was keen to learn. I wouldn’t say I have mastered it but I am very comfortable with everything that I have learned so far,” Virat Kohli said, in a video posted by on the BCCI website.

Asked about where he ranked the recent series triumph in Australia, Virat Kohli said that the cherished victory is right on top especially because after the number of injuries and lack of experience in the squad the odds were stacked up against India as compared to hosts Australia.

“I think if you put things in perspective in terms of the experience in the squad and how much cricket our boys had played against the opposition who had played way more… the odds were stacked up against us after Adelaide. The kind of character and belief shown by the whole squad… I don’t think any victory has been more special than this,” Virat Kohli stated.

Australia began the series on a strong note winning the day-night Test in Adelaide inside three days and handing India one of their worst Test defeats in the recent history as the team registered lowest ever Test score of 36.

Ravi Shastri Asked Players To Wear 36 As A Badge To Not Forget And Ensure That 36 Doesn’t Happen Again

Indian coach Ravi Shastri, who was also part of the interview, said that he had asked players to wear what happened in Adelaide Test as a badge so that it doesn’t happen to them again.

“One of the mornings I told the boys wear this 36 as a badge so that you never forget it and when things are going your way cash in and make the most of it,” Ravi Shastri stated.

Virat Kohli had to return home for the birth of his baby after playing the first Test in Adelaide which India lost by eight wickets inside three days.  Virat Kohli acknowledged that he was “a bit anxious” in the beginning but was relaxed a little especially after the way the players bounced back in the second Test in Melbourne.

“I will be very honest, before the Melbourne Test, I was a bit anxious but then the way the whole team played in Melbourne. I was cheering every ball… jumping up from the couch every now and then. Probably not as loud as I am on the field but still the cheers were loud enough for the staff to be heard everywhere in the house,” Virat Kohli, described how he followed the series at home.

Commenting on the return of international cricket in India post-COVID-19, the Indian skipper said that all the players are delighted to be playing cricket on home soil once again. He also said that the series is happening in India at the right time when situation arising due to Covid-19 has been brought under considerable control to a great extent and the players are feeling very safe in the bio-bubble.
