India captain Virat Kohli added another feather to his illustrious cap after he got honoured in a unique way by the Bradman Museum ahead of the 1st Test against Australia at Adelaide. Kohli has a special bond with Australia, where he loves the grounds and it is also the place where he got his maiden Test hundred. He has already scored five hundred in the country, just two behind Sachin Tendulkar. Recently, Kohli has received a special honour as a signed jersey that he donated after scoring his maiden hundred in the fourth Test at the SCG got placed next to Sachin Tendulkar’s portrait.
The museum celebrates Bradman’s achievements and honours the biggest achievers of the game.
“You learn from every series, every tour, every game that you play,” Kohli told in his recent interview with Sydney-based Macquarie Sports Radio.
“I think from last time round, I’ve become more assured of myself, I don’t really find the need to prove anything to anyone.
“It’s all about doing what the team wants me to do and just giving my 100% on the field, it’s a gradual process, I don’t really feel anything different when I go to tour countries now, it’s more a process now,” the 30-year-old added.
India’s fortunes will depend a lot on Kohli when the tourists lock horns with hosts Australia for a four-match Test series. Kohli is currently the No 1 batsman in Tests and ODIs and India will hope he gets among the runs.
It would also be interesting to see if Kohli can keep a lid over his emotions as Australians are bound to provoke the India captain. Kohli has said that he feels there is no need for him to get into an altercation. The first Test starts on December 6 at Adelaide.
