No excuse, no panic - Kohli sees big picture in Australia loss

Adjust Comment Print

Now Kohli wants to see his boys having fun in the IPL where they will split up and represent their respective franchises before the next national assignment in the form of the ICC mega event. We always knew that the plans and the style that we wanted to play are all there, can win us the World Cup, win us big series against great teams and India are definitely a great team.

From having zero ODI hundreds prior to this tour to peeling off almost three in three innings, Khawaja has struck such rich form that Shaun Marsh, Australia's best ODI batsman in the past year, can't find a place in the XI.

This was the first time Australia overcame a 0-2 deficit to win a five-match series, and they did it without their frontline pace pair of Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood.

Khawaja, who smashed a century and claimed "player of the match" award, was praised by the ISPR chief who wrote: "Very well played yet again #UsmanKhawaja".

"We've given the responsibility to the player to be smart, to inform the management of the franchise and be in touch with Patrick (Farhart), our physio". The tourists also ran out 2-0 winners in the preceding T20I series. We have got to keep our heads down, keep working hard. Moreover, he is at the second place in the list of Australian players scoring most runs in a five-match ODI series by amassing 383 runs in the recently-concluded series. Khawaja was also the highest run scorer in the series and have put the Australian selectors in dilemma for the World Cup squad.

He initially insisted that Mexico would pay for the wall but it has declined to do so. We're on track for a million illegal aliens to rush our borders.

Director General Major General Asif Ghafoor on Wednesday took a jibe at India while congratulating Pakistan-born Australian batsman Usman Khawaja for his match-winning performance against the Indian cricket team.

"But the fight that we showed, we've had our backs against the wall for quite a while now so I'm really proud of the group".

"I'm enjoying the wins more. Pete has batted beautifully, Maxi has always looked like he's going to get a lot of runs and been free-flowing". "I am not looking too far ahead", he said.

"From a personal point of view, it's huge as well". I wasn't in the one-day side this time previous year. Man-of-the-series in a one-day series in India. To be here in India and winning this series, it's massive.

"We did that for four of the five games get over the line in three of them was a great series all round". Then you have the conditions, then you have the crowds, so it's really satisfying to come back into the one-day side and contribute.
