Lively pitches, pure green tracks? Not a problem anymore for Virat Kohli -the captain. Gone are those days when Indian team used to fear for the green and bouncy tracks, as they haven’t got a great record on those kinds of pitches. Meanwhile, it isn’t the case with Virat Kohli-led side, who are pretty excited with the lively track available at Perth.

The pitch looks pretty challenging, where you can hardly find a difference between the wicket and the outfield. Looking at the wicket, Virat Kohli is very much happy, as he has got the bowling unit, which can make full use of it.

We have the solid bowling unit – Virat Kohli

The Indian skipper feels they have come to that phase, where they are no longer worried about their bowling setup. He understands if the batting section can deliver the goods, bowlers will hand the victory to the Indian Team.

Further, he added they aren’t nervous anymore looking at the lively pitch or green wicket.  Virat Kohli also warned Australians to be aware of the Indian bowling attack, which is in ominous form.

“We certainly get more excited than nervous looking at lively pitches now,” Kohli said today. We understand that we do have a bowling attack which can bowl the opposition out as much as they are convinced about their attack. When you have four or five fast bowlers who are at the peak of their ability, it’s always a great feeling to have in the side,” Virat Kohli quoted.

“For us, as batsmen, it also gives us a lot of motivation and boosts us up that we can put in those match-winning significant batting performances because we have so much belief in our bowling unit right now. We understand that if we bat well, we will definitely get the result that we want. It’s a very exciting phase to be in,” he added.

In fact, it would be interesting to see how things would pan out in the upcoming Test. Surely, fast bowlers from either side will be licking their lips to bag as many wickets as possible in their kitty.
