After Kagiso Rabada termed Virat Kohli as ‘immature’, the Indian skipper on Tuesday responded to the South African pacer’s comment but meanwhile, also praised him.
Rabada had recently said that Kohli likes to get into verbal spats with opposition team player and when asked about the pacer’s comment, Kohli, on the eve of their ICC Cricket World Cup campaign opener against the Proteas, said mediapersons: “I’ve played against Kagiso many times and I think we can discuss anything that needs to be discussed man-to-man (on Kagiso calling him immature). I don’t need a press conference to answer anything on what he said. Rabada is a world class bowler. He has the kind of skill set to go through any batting order on his day.”
Talking on his team, Kohli also informed that Kedar Jadhav is back to full fitness after his struggle with a shoulder injury.
“Jadhav is back in the mix after reaching full fitness. Ravindra Jadeja is batting with maturity now. We know we have a guarantee with all aspects covered. We are equipped to handle all conditions here,” Kohli said.
