Powered by Firework While speaking to the reporters captain Virat Kohli said that he expects individuals to step up and “show more character” during the Australia tour as the bowlers have already shown that they are more than capable of picking 20 wickets in a Test match. He laid special emphasis on the need for batsmen to bat together and the lower order to be “fearless.”Advertisement Skipper Virat Kohli and coach Ravi Shastri during the press conference in Mumbai before the team’s departure for the series against Australia.“We are focused on how the batsmen can bat well together and not just individually. Bowlers are in a good space and after a long time we have an attack which is capable of picking 20 wickets,” Kohli told reporters in Mumbai.“If we look at the England tour, apart from Lord’s, we didn’t get bundled out in a Test . We batted well in patches through the series. But when we don’t bat well as a team, we fall down and lose and mentally it takes a toll on you.”Advertisement Kohli also revealed that the team management has asked the players to live in the present and not to dwell over their past failures. Apart from Kohli, none of the batsmen showed consistency during India’s tour of England but Kohli is confident that the players will leave their mark in the forthcoming series.“The idea is to always live in the present and not to focus on the past. We went through a difficult time in 2014 but we came out of that shell. It has happened with me in the past as well. We are always trying to stay in the present because we have the talent. These are just the little things that we need to solidify.”Advertisement India’s tour of Australia starts on November 21 with a T20I. Advertisementlast_img read more

Powered by Firework PCB managing director Wasim Khan has said that he is not confident about resumption of India-Pakistan bilateral cricket any time soon but has suggested a change in strategy to get the two nations playing. Wasim said that the PCB needs to create a situation where India ask Pakistan to play, adding that they need to move forward as they could not wait forever to play India.Advertisement India and Pakistan have not played bilateral cricket since a short limited-overs series in India in 2012-13.“It”s a massive challenge and I don”t think we”re going to see any solutions anytime soon. I think elections are coming up in India, so nothing is going to happen in the near future. But, we are trying and (PCB chairman) Ehsan Mani is trying hard to get them to the table and get things moving,” ESPNcricinfo quoted Wasim Khan as saying. “We keep on asking them to play us but let”s create a situation where they ask us to play. I think we need to do that. Its sad that we are not playing against them but life continues. We need to move forward and carry on. We can’t wait forever to play India. Our focus is to develop Pakistan cricket and get our team and players a lot of success at the international level,” he added.Advertisement The PCB had filed a complaint against (BCCI) for not playing the bilateral series between 2015 and 2023 despite signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU). The International Cricket Council (ICC) had, however, dismissed the case. Mani said that there is no point engaging with India on the matter till the general elections. He added that if Pakistan succeeded in registering their name among top three cricket teams of the world then India would come on their own to play against them.“Until it”s not done (elections in India), there is no point in engaging them at this stage because we have to start over with new people in the BCCI. But our relations with the Indian board are very good and we have mutual respect but we won”t be imploring them to play us. If we will take Pakistan cricket to a level where we are among the top three teams in the world, they will come on their own to play with us,” Mani said.Advertisement “I get a lot of messages from Indian journalists and public about their wish to play against Pakistan. Unfortunately, politics sneaks in which I don”t believe sports should ever be mixed up with. But it happens in our environment, especially in India it happens a lot. But I understand when they are done with elections their attitude will get right too,” he added.  Advertisementlast_img read more
