Indian captain Virat Kohli has said that he wants to score runs in every match for India.
Kohli, who led India to victory by scoring an unbeaten 94 against the West Indies in a Twenty20 match played in Hyderabad on Friday, said he focused on the goal rather than keeping the fans entertained.
India defeated the West Indies by six wickets in this match. West Indies had a target of 208 runs to win in front of India. On the basis of Kohli’s explosive innings, India scored 209 for four wickets while remaining eight balls. With this victory, India took a 1-0 lead in the three-match Twenty20 series.
Kohli, who was elected Man of the Match, said, “I am not a player who wants to entertain people by coming to the stadium and playing in the air.”
I want to hit the target and during this time if I get a chance to hit sixes, then I will do so. My role in this team is to play long innings. “
Asked if he makes any changes in his game for the Twenty20 format, Kohli said, “I don’t want to change my game too much. I want to play all three formats (Twenty20, ODI and Test) I play and I want to contribute in all three formats. I want to score runs in every match. “
Kohli faced 50 balls in his innings. During this, he hit six fours and six sixes. His strike rate was 188.
