New Delhi: After weeks of mumbling and steering clear from media, Indian Test captain Virat Kohli will be speaking to the press today. He is going to take questions from the media at 3.30 pm Indian time.
On the tour of South Arica, the Indian Test captain has not spoken to the media folks during the Centurion and Johannesburg Test match and stayed away from the pre-match conferences as well. Though Virat Kohli missed out on the 2nd Test match against South Africa in Johannesburg due to a back spasm.
Meanwhile, Rahul Dravid had indicated just ahead of the Johannesburg Test match that Captian Kohli will speak to media persons ahead of the third Test match at Cape Town, as BCCI had planned a presser for his likely 100th Test match. However, the third Test match in Cape Town will be Virat’s 99th Test match as he missed the earlier Test match at the Wanderers.
Whatever is it, finally the Indian Test captain will face questions from the scribes and there will be a few well-tossed-up deliveries for sure related to the recent controversies between Virat and the BCCI President Sourav Ganguly. Now, it is up to Virat whether he will step out again or leave it well as the batsmen often do it in the longer format of the game.
The three-match Test series is hanging in balance and both India and hosts South Africa have won each from the first two outings. India beat South Africa in Centurion by 113 runs, while the Proteas came back roaring in the second test match and beat India by 7 wickets. Cape Town will host the final show down of this Test series.
