Skipper a great ambassador despite Aussie backlash
DHARAMSALA Sports, has accused Kohli of acting like India’s “worst behaved player ” rather than displaying the gravitas expected of the captain of his country.
“I think it’s really sad to hear such comments. We fully support Virat and he is one of the great ambassadors of this game,” Pujara told reporters.
“I think the focus has shifted somewhere else, which shouldn’t have happened. We are very much focused on the game.”
While the normally prolific Kohli has managed to score just 46 runs in the first three Tests, Pujara has been in outstanding form for India and hit a double century in the last Test in Ranchi.
Australia will retain the Border-Gavaskar Trophy if they can avoid defeat in the final game although India will remain the world’s number one ranked Test whatever the outcome. AFP
