I had invited him for 20 minutes, and in the end when saw the watches, it was more than two ours.”
“Kohli is proving to be the outstanding batsman of his era,” Chappell declared unequivocally. “Kohli’s aggressive captaincy deserves acknowledging.” About the recent Test, Chappell saw the turning point in Kohli’s 159-run partnership with Ajinkya Rahane for the fifth wicket.
