Kohli was the key player behind India's journey to the semi-final of ICC World T20 2016 while he is known to be a bit uncomfortable in front of Mustafizur's cutters. While the bowler talked about his bowling, he also went on praising the prolific batsman for his unmatched talent. <strong>LIVE CRICKET SCORECARD: <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/cricket-scores/ipl-2016/Live-Score-4th-T20-Match/Royal-Challengers-Bangalore-Vs-Sunrisers-Hyderabad/summary/16392" target="_blank">Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Sunrisers Hyderabad, RCB vs SRH, IPL 2016, match 4 at Bangalore</a></strong> <p></p> <p></p>Mustafizur mentioned that though the match is being played at M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bangalore, it does not remind him of the last India vs Bangladesh clash where Bangladesh faced a defeat and exited from the contest. "I am not representing my country. I will play in IPL. Then, there is no point looking back at what has happened in the past as one cannot change the fact," Mustafizur told <em>mzamin.com</em> in an interview. <p></p> <p></p>When asked about his plans of stopping Kohli, he said, "I think about the game and not about any particular player. If I play, I will give my level best and that is what I can assure." <p></p> <p></p>"I don't play to get wickets. I play because bowling gives me immense pleasure. It feels great when my bowling bears wickets. I think, everyone finds my bowling tough to face. '<em>Dada</em>' finds it difficult as well." <p></p> <p></p>When asked who did he refer to as '<em>dada</em>', he said it is Kohli himself. When asked about the reason, he said, "whoever is elder to me, I call them '<em>dada</em>' and the younger ones '<em>bhai</em>'. Kohli is also quite elder to me. I have never talked to him enough to call him 'Kohli dada' though." <p></p> <p></p>"To me, Kohli is an extraordinary batsman. I am no one to lend my opinion upon his talents. What inspires me the most is his killer-instinct and passion for the game. His techniques are unmatched. His batting is something that can be called 'almost perfect'. I believe that he does not care about the clashes between me and him that the media set up before each India-Bangladesh match, because I do the same." <p></p> <p></p>Talking about his famous cutters, Mustafizur said, "Cutters are something I bowl by instinct. I never learnt to bowl them, it came to me naturally. During a pacer's camp, Anamul Haque Bijoy once asked me, 'Can you bowl cutters?'. I said, 'No, but I can try. I tried, and it worked." <p></p> <p></p>Finally he concluded saying, "If I ever get a chance to bowl to Kohli in the nets, I will be benefited from the experience looking at the amount of talent he has. I could better my attack against him for the next meet."
