Why everyone is expecting from the Indian team to take revenge from New Zealand?
Everyone is expecting from team India to take revenge from them as they dumped India out of the 2019 World Cup with a thrilling win the semi-final in Manchester last July.
Kohli says they are too nice to take revenge
While addressing the reporters when they were asking about taking revenge from them, he gave a soft reply, “Not really. Even if you want to think of revenge these guys are so nice that you can’t get into that zone,”.
He further added, “It’s all about being competitive on the field. They are one side that has set the right example for teams to carry themselves on the international stage. We were actually happy for them when they qualified for World Cup finals. When you have lost you have to look at the larger picture. So nothing about revenge,”.
The Indian skipper said this time game is important than thinking about revenge
He said, this is the year of the World Cup and every T20 is important. So, we can’t lose our focus. The Indian skipper has also made it clear that K.L. Rahul will continue to bat at No. 5 in ODIs while in T20Is; he will bat at the top. I know there will be a lot of talk about what happens to other players but for us, it’s about what the team requires and the best balance of the side,” he added.
Instead of taking revenge, he is focusing on playing well with his team to win. He said that we are not going to take them for granted. We will do our best.
