Virat Kohli talks about New Zealand in press conference ahead of WTC final
In less than a day, the Test match to determine the winner of WTC will begin. Prior to the game, Indian captain Virat Kohli spoke about his opponents in a press conference.
Kohli was asked about his thoughts on New Zealand being labeled as the ‘nice guys.”‘
“I don’t understand the term nice guys, it’s not like other team has bad guys,” said Kohli.
Cricket is called a gentlemen’s game and NZ players are true to that definition. Even when they lose important matches or series, you will never find any NZ player angry, instead they will be smiling in a corner.
Due to these gestures, the Kiwis have built a reputation of being the nice guys if cricket. However, as Virat stated, no one from other terms can be called bad guys. As all the teams are trying to win more and more trophies for their nation.
Whatever be the case, it is a personal opinion of fans after all and not everyone will agree to it. As of now, most fans are wondering which team will lift the WTC trophy for the first time in the history of cricket.
