Indian head coach Rahul Dravid was in all praise for Indian superstar Virat Kohli

The Indian number four brought about his 28th Test Century in this test match. He bought about his century after a span of 1025 long days. This became a trending cricket news and people all over the world became happy. 

Dravid said that despite being a great player when you are playing in the middle, you need to suppress the ego. Virat Kohli exactly played that way and did what the situation demanded him to do. He was not adamant about a certain style of play and molded his game according to the situation. 

Dravid spoke about Kohli’s ego

“The one very good thing we got to see here was that however great a player you might be, you need to suppress your ego at times, which is why you score 75 centuries. As coaches, we get frustrated at times. I listen a lot that this is my style and I will play like this only.”

“In this match, a big player showed that if the situation is like that and the team is going slightly defensive and not giving you boundaries, you can score a century while playing differently and playing for the team. You hit only five boundaries in the first 100 runs.”

“He could have gotten frustrated. He could have said that he would hit and dominate but he knew that the team did not require that in that situation. This is the specialty of great players.”

Dravid also lauded Rohit’s hundred in Nagpur. He said that the Indian skipper took time and then scored aggressively once set. 

“We saw Rohit Sharma’s hundred as well in the Nagpur game. He scored quick runs on the first day and then when he came on the second day, Australia put pressure on him, and he remained a little defensive. He bided his time and then scored a century.”

After the first two test matches, there was a cricket prediction that India would whitewash the Australian side. But Australia bounced back in the third test to make the series 2-1. The last test match drew and the series remained 2-1 as India retained the Border Gavaskar Trophy for the fourth time in a row.
