Small Mouth, Big Words. It’s time the Men in Blue teach these bunch of over-enthusiastic jumping kangaroos a filthy lesson. Pat Cummins has foretold about Indian skipper Virat Kohli’s performance on their tour down under by the end of this year.
The Australian pacer was found passing controversial remarks on the Unstoppable run machine of the Indian cricket, despite the fact that they themselves are handicapped at the moment without Warner and Smiths’s presence.
Pat Cummins might have fired him up more with his comments!
“For my brave, bold prediction, I would say Virat Kohli is not going to get a hundred and we are going to knock them over here”, said the 25-year-old to the broadcaster of 7 cricket.
With Australia just facing a pitiable and shitty defeat on their 5 match ODI tour to England, speaking on the perforamnce of a player who is perhaps the best in the world at the moment is nothing more than a foolish remark.
They should look themselves up in the mirror before passing comments on a player of the likes of Kohli, who could single-handedly bring tears in the eyes of their bowling unit. And considering the form he has been in for the past couple of years, it very natural for the Indian skipper to break few careers of the Australian bowlers on his tour down under.
What’s surprising, is the guts with which the injury-prone Pat Cummins critiqued the 29-year-old all-time legend, knowing what could be the outcome of such fiery contest. Well, it won’t be surprising, if the Indian skipper gives a smacking hit on the shitty Australian unit’s rear on his tour down under, and in the process manages to make rake in some runs and create history.
Kohli’s last tour to Australia
When India last toured Australia for the 4-match test series, though the outcome fell in the host’s favour, the then appointed Indian captain had managed to hurl a series of devastating centuries in the Australian conditions.
4 hundreds in 4 gruelling matches, against a bowling attack that had the finesses of Mitchell Johnson, Josh Hazelwood, Nathon Lyon and Mitchell Starc, isn’t anyone’s cup of tea.
Not to forget, that India’s Tour to Australia for 5 matches ODI series and 3 T20i series, following a year after the 2015 World cup, Kohli had managed to get past the 25 centuries with some 2 centuries and a fifty along with some unbeaten knock of 50+ runs in the T20i format of the game.
Only a player of Virat’s calibre could even think of attempting such an unimaginable feat. In the process of notching some personal bests, the then ODI skipper MS Dhoni created history as well.
He became 1st Captain in international cricket to have delivered a 3-0 whitewash to the Australian team in their home conditions across any format of the game.
Future of Australian Cricket? Do they even have one?
Talking about the present Australian unit, a team that relies more on foul-mouthing tactics rather than resorting to sensible cricket, their future looks pretty much eclipsed at the moment.
Kohli’s men would try to exploit the absence of Smith and Warner to the fullest, and if any top-notch bowler too gets a ban or an injury prior to the contest, then it would be a icing on the cake for the Indian gentlemen
