captaincy won’t be an added pressure says Kohli

There will be no added pressure to me says Virat. India Test Skipper Virat Kohli in press meet said, captaincy won’t be an added pressure for him in the tough Sri Lanka tour. Virat added that, he will look to play good cricket in the three-Test series starting next week.

“Captaincy and batting are two aspects that I will not try to mix. I do not think I need to change anything,” Kohli said while addressing reporters after their arrival in the Sri Lankan capital on Wednesday.

Both teams are in rebuilding stage

Virat is going to captaining the side in a full series for the first time. He said it is going to be a tough series for both the teams, because India and Sri Lanka are currently in the rebuilding stage. There will be equal chance for both the teams to manage a win. After the senior’s retirement in both the teams, younger players are trying to keep their maximum efforts in the play. Former skipper Kumar Sangakkara will retire after the second Test at Galle and Kohli said it would present a big challenge to Sri Lanka.

No need to think about past

India has not won a Test series in Sri Lanka since 1993 but Kohli said he would not be paying any attention to this fact and will look to play good cricket. “When I came here to play the first ODI series I was told that India had not won a ODI series for 25 years. I felt no pressure then. We are here to play good cricket, every series for us is a part of our plan we want to put in for the next five to six years,” he said. This will be India’s first three-Test series in the subcontinent since their 1-1 draw in Sri Lanka five years back.
