Team India is expected to win everything but it is not realistically possible: Virat Kohli


India under the leadership of talismanic skipper Virat Kohli has won 14 series at home in the longest format of the game and every time they step onto the field they are expected to win every match but realistically it is not possible feels Kohli. He said in the last 2 years, we have played some great cricket and barring the World Test Championship final and recently concluded T20 World Cup.

“The year has been very good for us. We have played very good cricket. There were two setbacks in the T20 World Cup and WTC. Victories in England and Australia gave us a lot of confidence. The Indian team is expected to win everything, but that’s not realistic. We know what we need to work on and improve on and look forward to. That’s our process,” Kohli said on Monday.

“We have set a high standard for Indian cricket, and that needs to be maintained. That’s what we have to have in the forefront of our minds.”

He was also asked about his bad form along with Pujara and Rahane who are struggling in cricket’s greatest format to which he replied that we have to stick to our process the results would flow certainly.

“We stick to the process, but if the mode of dismissal is repetitive, then there’s something we need to address. It’s about playing 60-70 balls to get a feel for it. Sometimes those things happen naturally, and sometimes they don’t, but the only constant is that you work hard and trust the process,” Kohli said.

“That shouldn’t waver because that comes from personal experience, and that’s where you can go when nothing is going right. You have to keep an eye on evolving and weed out repetitive mistakes. Those need to be ironed out. You have to understand and believe that you can overcome these slumps. That’s the battle – the believing.”
