Virat Kohli continues to lead hosts India in the ongoing Test series against visitors Sri Lanka IANS

Virat Kohli has been recently in the news for his gruelling schedule. Kohli continues to lead India in the ongoing Test series against visitors Sri Lanka, which started on Thursday at the historic Eden Gardens Stadium in Kolkata. Meanwhile, India’s fielding coach R Sridhar feels that if given a chance to Kohli, there would hardly be any moment when he would miss out to play for the country. As for the rest, Sridhar said that Kohli would only take it when his body needs some. However, as long as he is fit, he would continue to play for India, no matter how crunch the schedule is.

On Kohli playing non-stop cricket for India

“Each member in this team is very proud to represent his country at any given opportunity. Most in the team love to play every match. Knowing Virat, he wears his pride on his sleeve. As long as his body allows he would not miss a single second of the match,” said Sridhar during the post-day press conference.

On Hardik Pandya being rested

“The parameters we take into consideration is the workload. The time he spent at the crease, overs, batting…based on that, the team management takes a call on who needs to be rotated.” FULL CRICKET UPDATES: India vs Sri Lanka 2017-18, 1st Test at Eden Gardens, Day 2

On India’s confident fielding effort

“We are not doing any magic trick. As far as fielding goes, the formula is very simple, the more you practice the better you get. You can see the results because it’s a controllable skill of the game unlike bowling and batting which one cannot control. So we work hard on the things we can control and I may sound like a broken record here but the only way to get better is to practice a lot and that’s what this team does. The fitter the player, the better the result on the field. You are more agile.”

On Suresh Raina

“He’s a fabulous fielder. Once he is through with the fitness parameters, I’m sure he will be very much part of the whole process.”
