India will play positively in Australia says Kohli

Virat Kohli, who is going to captain taste match for the first time due to injury Mahendra Singh Dhoni in tour for Australia looked very confident of beating the Australian team in their home town and urged fans and the media to support the Indian team. They lost all the four Test matches without putting up a fight during their last tour in 2011-2012. Kohli believes that a team can learn from such experiences rather than surrounding itself with the negatives. "I hadn't witnessed such a hostile environment before. My take away from that tour was that we always need to be positive. That is what I'll take forward this time. My experience will help me," Kohli said to media in a press conference. He says that they should be mentally prepared to face Australia fast bowling in likes of Mitchell Johnson, Ryan Harris and Peter Siddle. Kohli also praised team director Ravi Shastri on the team. "When a young guy looks at Ravi Shastri and hears him speak, there is a big, positive impact," he added. The Indian squad includes 5 fast bowlers in which Ishant Sharma, Umesh Yadav and Varun Aaron are capable of bowling at speeds over 140kmph. Kohli was confident at team's chances in the upcoming tour. "We have a good chance of beating Australia in their home-ground. We have done it before. I don't see why we can't do it again," he said. First test will be played in Brisbane from December 4th before which India plays 2 practice matches
