London: Former India wicketkeeper Farooq Engineer heaped praise on Indian skipper Virat Kohli but believes Kohli’s aggression should be within limits. There was a scuffle between Kohli and James Anderson during the second test match played at Lord’s. India won this match by 151 runs.
‘There should be limits to aggression’
The engineer said during the discussion with Sports, ‘I am a fan of Kohli. He is an aggressive captain. This is good but it should have a limit. If this does not happen then the match referee and umpire will intervene.
‘Kohli is a very good captain’
He said, ‘Sometimes he becomes very aggressive. But I like his aggression. Kohli is a very good captain. He is one of the best batsmen in the world. The 83-year-old former player said that the 89-run partnership between Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami in the second innings against England was excellent.
‘They used to call us Bloody Indians’
Regarding sledging during his career days, he said that he used to focus on answering the opposition team through his on-field performances. The engineer said, ‘They used to call us Bloody Indians. He ridiculed our accent but I answered him. I answered him back on the pitch by doing runs and wicketkeeping and all that.
