Indian Captain Virat Kohli is 'frustrated' feels former Australian fast bowler Mitchell Johnson. The Perth Scorchers seamer has taken a dig at the India skipper after the hosts won the second Test in Bengaluru which equalized the four-match series 1-1. The game also brought several controversies to the fore with Kohli and his Aussies counter-part Steve Smith in the midst of it ahead of the third Test scheduled to 16 March in Ranchi. The 35-year-old bowler said that Kohli was up "his old tricks as usual in Bengaluru".
"He's obviously quite passionate, but I just think he's frustrated because he hasn't scored a run and he's letting his emotions get the better of him. You could sense the vibe change halfway through the match and it coincided with India getting ahead in the game," Mitchell Johnson has written in the blog.
"Obviously whenever there's a wicket the cameras go straight to Kohli to see his reaction-they know they're going to get those kind of reactions from him. And they did! He was giving a send-off to just about every player, which you've got to be very careful with. It can happen sometimes, when you're pumped up and you get a bit too fired up."
