India’s captain Virat Kohli is known to be an expressive character on the field. He is someone who never holds back his emotions and is quite lively. While he was much more emotional on the field in the early parts of his career, he toned his feelings down in recent times. However, in the ongoing series against the West Indies, he seemed to have brought that energy back and has been in the face of the opposition.
Virat Kohli played a masterclass in the first T20I in Hyderabad and followed that up with an aggressive knock in Mumbai. In both these matches, he seemed very passionate while batting. Also, he mocked the Notebook celebration of Kesrick Williams in a funny turnaround of things. Even in the other games, he has seemed quite excited with his celebrations when the other batsmen score big runs or when the bowlers pick up wickets.
I cannot answer that, says Kieron Pollard
After the conclusion of the second ODI, West Indies skipper was asked about why Virat Kohli is so animated. As per Times Now, the all-rounder replied by saying that the question needs to be asked to the 31-year-old. He said that he won’t be able to answer this question.
“You have to ask him why is he so animated. I cannot answer that. You need to ask him,” Pollard told reporters after the match. India won the second ODI by a mammoth 107-run margin. Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul scored centuries to help the team post a big total on the board. Then, the bowlers did well to restrict the opposition and Kuldeep Yadav’s hat-trick proved to be an icing on the cake. Virat Kohli, as expected, was pumped after this victory and throughout this game.
Earlier, West Indies registered a great win in the first ODI and took a 1-0 lead in the series. Courtesy Shimron Hetmyer and Shai Hope, the team managed to pull off an epic run chase of 288 runs. It all boils down to the third ODI in Cuttack. The series decider will be played on 22 December 2019.
