SA vs IND: I’m at peace with how I’m playing, says Virat Kohli;

SA vs IND: Current Indian Test Team captain Virat Kohli said that change cannot be forced on someone, it happens with time.

Virat Kohli is set to come back for the the 3rd Test against South Africa in Cape Town, which starts on Tuesday, after being absent in the 2nd Test in Johannesburg due to back ripples. He’ll more or less certainly switch Vihari. They batted well in both innings in Johannesburg, getting 60 runs and only being removed once. After modest scores in the first innings, Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane were under duress, but they applied all of their skill and involvement to a difficult situation in the second innings, both striking half-centuries while stitching a counterattacking third-wicket stand of 111.

“I apparently cannot determine when we will have a talk about change,” Kohli said when asked. Whether the team organization had any talks about a longer-term change in the middle order. “I think the game itself pans out in a way where transitions happen naturally, so it cannot be forced by individuals,” said Kohli.

“And if you look at the last Test. Both Jinks and Pujara, the way they batted in the 2nd  innings, that experience are clearly invaluable for us. And particularly in series like these where you know these guys have done the job in the past. And when you are playing overseas, in tough circumstances, these guys will always step up with impact performances.”

“We saw that in Australia as well, the last time we were there (2020-21), we’re seeing that now as well in the last Test. Crucial knocks in critical circumstances, in critical situations, and that has a lot of value.”

Watch Virat Kohli practicing ahead of the final test:

“So I feel changes do happen, but they happen naturally. And a talk cannot be forced around a change is what I’ve experienced and what I feel. When the change has to happen, everyone knows in which direction. The team is moving, and that is a very natural progression. So I think we should leave the transition to unfold itself. And not essentially force individuals into difficult circumstances or tricky situations and I truly believe in that.”
