“The IPL has changed quite a few things. The cricket is still competitive but the verbals and the sledging are not nasty anymore. It has become a game of mutual respect and admiration. Still, you can say that they have the same hunger,”

Virat Kohli who is known for his aggression and zeal on the field also stated,

“The stuff which was too intense and things that created tension between the teams has significantly gone down, that’s what I have experienced this year but not the competitiveness.”

“I think it is a nice thing forward, it is progressive and if the tensions rise in tournaments like World Cups, you see that anyway. So, I think it is nice to have the camaraderie among the players,”

Talking about his recent hundred that ended a three-year century drought in Test cricket. Kohli stated,

When I made the hundred and converted it into a big one, that gave me a sense of calmness, relaxation, and excitement again. You kind of become comfortable with your game, and your thinking and your heart is not rising before the next practice session. You eventually want to be in such a space. And that particular hundred gave me a grounded feeling back.”

Meanwhile, all eyes will once again be on Virat Kohli on Wednesday (March 22) when India take on Australia in the third and final ODI of the series in Chennai. Kohli scored 4 and 31 in the first two ODIs and the series is now 1-1.

Virat Kohli also talked about happiness in life, he stated,

“Just from a cricketing perspective. In life, I was pretty happy and relaxed. But when playing also, you want to be in that space as much as possible,”
