Leading body of Cricket in India i.e The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) posted a video on their site wherein Indian Skipper Virat Kohli turned anchor for the 67-year-old Viv Richards.


Former West Indies legend Viv Richards said that he adored the manner in which India captain Virat Kohli ‘gave it back’ to the Australian players, who love to sled their rivals, in 2014.


Kohli began by saying that before confronting Australia for a four-coordinate Test series in 2014-15, he began envisioning their bowlers.

“In 2014, we went to England and I had an extremely terrible visit. Be that as it may, the following one was Australia which was significantly progressively threatening and extreme. What helped me around then was a representation. A quarter of a year prior going to Australia, I began envisioning that I’m taking these bowlers on and I will rule and end up as the winner and that for me was a disclosure. I had so much conviction as a result of putting the idea,” Kohli said.


Answering to Kohli, Richards stated: “I think you scored four centuries there. I was in Australia simultaneously. We were doing the Big Bash. The Australians can be, as I would see it, menaces now and again, they attempt to work you out, however, you gave it back and I cherish that. What’s more, not simply giving it back, you (Kohli) gave it back with enthusiasm with the manner by which you perform.”

Aside from representation, it is his better half Anushka Sharma, whom Kohli feels helped him a ton. He said that she leads him the correct way.


“All things considered, it’s been the greatest blessing in my life apart from being honored to play this game. To find the right person. Since she is a professional herself, she thoroughly comprehends my space. She guides me in the right direction,” Kohli said.


“What I have discovered from us being as one is that if you want to do things which are right in your life, off the field, and doing the difficult things and remaining by them, I imagine that makes your personality to go on the field and do something very similar,” he included.


The Indian cricket team is as of now in West Indies and have just trounced West Indies in T20I and ODI series.


The two-match Test series between both teams began on Thursday. India scored 203 for the loss of six wickets on the principal Test match.
