There is a general belief that Virat Kohli gets going if he comes across sledging from the opposition. Since the time the Indian right-hander first toured Australia, he has sparked several controversies. But the Indian captain said he has matured now not to get involved in such things. However, Australian pacer Pat Cummins feels it’s nearly impossible that Kohli doesn’t get into a war of words.

Before leaving to Australia, Virat mentioned that he doesn’t feed on altercations on the field anymore. “When it comes to getting engaged in an argument on the field, I have been completely okay playing without an altercation. I have enough belief in my abilities.. those were very immature things I used to feed on when I was younger,” said the Indian captain.

Pat Cummins can’t digest Kohli denying altercation

On the other hand, Pat Cummins feels it’s not possible that Kohli will be away from the action. As per the pacer, the Indian batsman raises his game by raising the heat. Also, he said that the Australians would treat Kohli same as others.

“I think I heard him say in the media the other day he won’t, but I’ll be surprised if he doesn’t,” Cummins told Fairfax Media. “He’s so competitive, he really thrives on that.

“We’ll hold our ground, we’re going to be competitive and all those things. We wouldn’t treat him differently to any others. I think you’ll see a lot of passion from both sides but nothing super fiery like we saw against India a couple of years ago,” added Cummins.

Not only Pat Cummins, but there are others who reckon that Virat Kohli intentionally gets involved that gets the best out of him. Recently, South African skipper Faf du Plessis had warned the Australians not to get Virat charged up.
