Some Of Virat Kohli's Statements Make Me Cringe, Says Rahul Dravid

Former India captain Rahul Dravid on Sunday revealed that some of the pre-series statements made by Virat Kohli make him cringe. Speaking at the Bangalore Literature Festival, Dravid said that the Indian cricket team captain can sometimes come across as outrageous. However, the legendary batsman added that such an approach works for Kohli, helping him deliver consistently in big-match situations. “Virat sometimes comes across as outrageous and I cringe on reading his statements before a series. But if he can bring the best out of himself by needling the opposition, so be it,” Dravid was quoted as saying by Times of India.
Dravid also said it was unfortunate how Anil Kumble’s exit from Team India.
“It is unfortunate for a legend who was part of the highest number of winning Indian teams to see unceremonious departure. At the same time, it is quite common that coaches always get sacked. I also am the Under-19 Indian team coach. I may also be sacked,” he said.
Kohli on Monday returned to the top of the ICC ODI rankings for batsmen.
