After Mitchell Johnson, yet another Aussie makes a controversial statement on Virat Kohli

The series of controversial statements has unleashed even before the actual beginning of the series which clearly gives a glimpse of how competitive the battle can get.

The tussle between the two super powers in World cricket is going to be a massive one. It’s going to be the men in blue and the Kangaroos locking horns for all the three formats of the game starting from November 21. The level of excitement amongst the fans for this series has been fueled by the controversial statements hauled on players of the opposition party. This particular activity has however been actively started by the professionals in this regard – the Aussies.

Although the current team combination in no way looks promising for the Aussies owing to the lack of ample exposure to world cricket, the fact that they are playing in their own backyard has given them the power to perturb the Indian team with their controversial statements.

Very recently, former Australian pacer, Mitchell Johnson had taken a dig at the Indian skipper, Virat Kohli when he posted on Twitter that he would love to play the matches free of altercation and sledging in the upcoming series. Johnson had also commented on the same that he would be eagerly waiting for no send offs from the skipper.

Soon after, another Australia pacer, Pat Cummins has also indulged in the war of words, saying that he would be thoroughly surprised to see Virat in the non aggression appearance as promised. Virat had already mentioned that he used to indulge himself in such practices when he was young, but having grown over the years and with important responsibilities shouldered on him, he chose to remain aloof from them.

“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.”

Cummins however mocked at such a declaration by Kohli. He said that it would be highly unlikely to expect the same from such a competitive player and that it’s definitely not possible.

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

Regarding the upcoming series, Cummins clarified that irrespective of the team’s combination, they are going to play with the same mindset, game plan, passion as they have been over the years and will not take the matches lightly under any circumstances.

“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.”
