Sourav Ganguly’s special appeal to Kohli

He wants Kohli to move on.

By Aditya Pratap Arya -


India-Australia series finished with the most expected result but controversies of this series are still alive in Virat Kohli's heart, who said during the post-match presentation of Dharamshala encounter that the Australian cricketers are no more friends for him.

Meanwhile, former skipper Sourav Ganguly gives an advice to Kohli while saying he should leave those things on the field only.

Australian media and players targeted Kohli throughout this series starting from Nathan Lyon who marked Kohli as the head of a snake, which followed an epic reply from Indian skipper. He replied you keep the focus on snake’s head, the other parts will harm you from several directions.

The controversies further include DRS saga, where Steve Smith asked for a clue from dressing room over his LBW dismissal.

Ganguly asked Kohli to move on while saying “I am sure he will loosen up with time. He should forget what happens with the Australian players on the ground (sledging). That is competitiveness. But what happens with media and ex-players getting into sledging the opposition captain wasn't right. It is not their job.”

“I don't consider there was bad blood. I consider there was competition. Both Virat and Smith should be happy they could put up a show. Both boards and players should get over it, he added while talking to India Today.

India won the series by 2-1 after conceding the first Test in Pune.
