They can produce the goods really well on their day. I like Virat Kohli. Overall the Indian side is aggressive which is important. When they [opponents] give it to you, they can get it back with interest," Pollock said, as reported by <em>Mid-Day</em>.<br /> <br /> Pollock didn’t get the chance to watch Indian opener <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/cricket-articles/Shikhar-Dhawan-s-record-breaking-248-guides-India-A-to-433-3-against-South-Africa-A/29875" target="_blank">Shikhar Dhawan score a mammoth 248</a> against South Africa A, but was very impressed with the achievement.<br /> <br /> "It’s one hell of a performance! It’s a huge effort and if someone can get 248, he surely must be able to play very well," said the batting legend.<br /> <br /> Pollock also expressed his concern over the South African side in limited-overs cricket. <br /> <br /> "I think they are messing around with their batting order. <a href="/tags/AB-de-Villiers/post" target="_blank">AB de Villiers</a> is keeping wickets, but he should be left to concentrate on his batting. You can’t be batting in 50 overs cricket like it’s a 20-20 game. It’s important to keep wickets in hand to get to a big score and that’s not happening," he said.<br /> <br /> Talking about the decline in Australian cricket, Pollock added, "I don’t know what’s happening there. People say they will get better. I don’t see that happening. They just don’t seem to have the quality batsmen apart from <a href="/tags/Michael-Clarke/post" target="_blank">Michael Clarke</a>. They have some very average players."
