Virat Kohli motivates team players -

Australia vs India: On Tuesday, Virat Kohli urges batsmen to perform better for the in the upcoming Boxing Day Test against Australia starting on Wednesday.

     "It is a very important thing. As we can all see, our bowling [attack] has been performing really well. However, we have to put more runs on the board as a batting unit, or else the bowlers will not be able to do too much with the total.The visiting bowlers have been exceptional on the tour of Australia so far, claiming all 40 Australian scalps in the first two Tests. However, the batting has run hot and cold, unable to be consistent in four innings. Our aim is to put enough runs on the board to help our bowlers capitalise. If we bat second, we will look to amass enough lead if the situation allows or at least match the opposition total. Our batsmen need to step up together. I won't point out anyone individually, but as a batting unit, we definitely need to do better together",said Kohli on the eve of the third Test." said the Indian Captain.

"The teams that remain in the present more win sessions, win balls, win overs that's all we are going to focus on. Play consistently good cricket and not get too excited or too taken aback by the situations getting altered during the course of the Test match", said Kohli to motivate the players.

          India won the Adelaide test but lost the Perth test. The upcoming Boxing Day Test against Australia is starting on Wednesday.
