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. During the discussion with Sports Tak Engineer said, “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.
If Farooq is to be believed, ‘Sometimes Virat 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. Regarding sledging during his career days, he said that he used to focus on answering the opposition team through his on-field performances.
Farooq 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.
