Posts Kohli seems to have left a lasting mark on Australian test captain Tim Paine, who says he will always “remember” the Indian skipper as the best batsman in the world, who is also able to get under the skin of the opposition under his competition. Kohl and Pressure have had a fiery race returning to India’s 2018-19 tour of Australia. Their fielders were an interesting part of the historic show, where India became the first Asian country to win the test series Down Under.
“I have said to Kohl many times that he seems to be the kind of player you would like to have on your team. He is competitive. He is the best batsman in the world,” 36-year-old Paine said. In the Gilly and Goss podcast.
“He (Kohli) is challenging to play against and he can get under your skin because he’s so good and competitive.
“But yeah, for me about where I come from, when I told him my anger four years ago, he’s definitely someone I always remember,” he added.
Interestingly, last year, Paine had said that Kohli is “just one player” on the Indian team, which “really doesn’t bother me”.
He had also found that the Australian team “loves to hate” superstars for their awe-inspiring abilities at bat.
After a spectacular loss in 2018-19, Paine suffered a new devastation earlier this year as an injury-stricken Indian team that didn’t have Kohl after the opening test lifted the Aussies in the tests for the second consecutive tour.
He had recently caused a flurry, noting that the “nigling” of the Indian team had disrupted his side in this year’s series.
Painen had to find out that he made no excuses for the loss after he had criticized his comments.
