Addressing the media after a 2-1 series win against Australia, India captain Virat Kohli has blasted the Australian cricketers. He said he thought Australian cricketers were his friends, but he does not believe in that anymore. Kohli believes that his friendship with the Australian cricketers has changed. Kohli said, I thought Australia’s cricketers were my friends. Been proven wrong. You’ll never hear me say that again. India and Australia were involved in many heated battles in the middle. Kohli, who missed the final Test at Dharamsala due to a shoulder injury, was mocked by a few Australian players in the Ranchi Test after he hurt his shoulder while saving a boundary.

Kohli however did bat and took field for Australia s third innings at Ranchi, but did not clear the late fitness test that was conducted ahead the fourth Test. Kohli was earlier in the series unhappy with the fact that Australia skipper Steven Smith looked at the dressing room for assistance with DRS after he was given out. Smith then said that was a brain fade moment. Kohli went on to add that India must now do well overseas after dominating the home season. Our main challenge begins now, if we conquer the overseas season then you will see the broadest smile on my face, said Kohli.
