Virat Kohli lambastes reporter says India-Pakistan clash 'just another game'

Indo-Pak games are always exciting for the fans. It's different for them.

"Right now, the mindset is very similar - to go out there and enjoy our cricket, which we've done in the past couple of years". In our heads nothing really changes, it's exactly the same for us. There is no need to motivate players any differently because if you're playing for India, there is no need for any separate motivation.

While interacting with the media before the team's departure for the tour to UK, Kohli said that they would have to be at the top of the game from ball one. You might have the best side in the world but if you do not execute there is no point having that skill.

India arrives in England and Wales as one of the favourites to lift the trophy and repeat its success from 2013 - when it beat host England in a memorable final. India are now going in the tournament as defending champions and will play under the leadership of Virat Kohli. His 27 centuries is the fourth highest number of centuries in all-time list and Kohli will only go up from here. "If not, then your chances go down pretty soon". India are pooled alongside Pakistan, Sri Lanka and South Africa in Group while England have the likes of Australia, New Zealand and Bangladesh in Group A. "I think that's the biggest challenge in Champions Trophy".

Kohli described wicketkeeper-batsman Dhoni and veteran batsman Yuvraj Singh as "the two pillars" of the current Indian side.

"In Test cricket we have been able to reach the top with that mindset, we want to take it across all formats. For me, it is a game of cricket played anywhere in the world", Kohli said.

The 32-year-old further said that Indian bowling unit consisting of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami and Jasprit Bumrah would utilize the swing conditions on offer in England to the utmost, which thus makes the team a very strong unit.

". So that's one area we needed improvement on". Rohit and Shikhar were a revelation as an opening pair.

"I remember there being such a great vibe in 2013".

Bangladesh have jumped to No.6 in the latest ODIranking and will be hoping to get off to a good start against Pakistan in the warm-up game. We would like to stick to the same strengths.

As the IPL season took off there was much to speak about Virat Kohli.

"I have every confidence that we can not yield in any way to terrorists' intentions".

"It is hard for me to say when I haven't looked at the pitches, but if they are dry, then I definitely think the spinners will play a role in the tournament".

For India's best batsman, T20 and ODIs shouldn't be mixed as only benefit is the game time irrespective of the format. "These wickets (in the past season) have come and they are result of how much have strived for excellence, all I am trying to do is use this experience", Ashwin remarked.
