Sports Desk- Indian team captain Virat Kohli is known in the cricket world for his aggressive style. Many cricketers are afraid of this style of Virat. recently Australia’s wicketkeeper-batsman Matthew Wade said that he can stay away from “sledging” during the home Test series against India later this year.
Matthew Wade has used sharp words to get into the skin of his opponents in the past, especially in the 2017 India ODI series and also during last year’s Ashes in England.
However, the 32-year-old said he would not want confrontations with Indian players during the much-anticipated four-Test series later this year. “They’re a hard team, they use it to their advantage very well,” Wade told reporters in a video call on Tuesday.
Wade said, “They use to it well as their advantage, the Indians. Virat (Kohli) is very clever at the way that uses his words or body language. So they use it as an advantage now.
To be honest, I don’t really want to engage too much into that. I know that they thrive off of that energy between two players. They are probably as good at doing that as anyone in the world at the moment. So it is something which I may stay away from this time.”
Wade, who played 32 Tests, 94 ODIs and 29 T20 Internationals for Australia, said that India is a tough opponent after which there are also good fielders. He said, “I have been lucky to have played against him in India, but I never got a chance to play against him in Australia.” I have played him twice in India, which is challenging. They are a very tough team.
