New Delhi
of Indian cricket team Captain Virat Kohli has said that it will not be too difficult to take a tough decision about the change in the squad for the second Test against New Zealand starting at the Wankhede Stadium on Friday. Kohli says that he is well aware of the requirements of the player and the team, which will play a big role in decision making in the match.

With Kohli returning to the team after a short break, Team India will have to reinvent their batting line-up. Kohli and head coach Rahul Dravid will have to decide who should be dropped in the playing XI squad for the Kanpur Test.

During the virtual press conference on Thursday, Kohli said, ‘You have to clearly understand the situation where the team has been placed. You have to understand where the player stands, you have to understand the conditions and you have to communicate well. It is not difficult to believe in the team.

According to Kohli, ‘The players of the team trust each other and they understand that the decision will be taken according to the situation and requirement of the team.’ Mumbai batsman Shreyas Iyer, who replaced Kohli in the playing XI, performed brilliantly in the team by scoring a century on debut and a half-century in the second innings. Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane as well as opener Mayank Agarwal did not live up to the expectations.

Kohli said the team management will discuss all options and work out changes keeping in mind the weather conditions before taking a final call on batting and bowling for the Wankhede Test. The India captain said that he is looking forward to bat at the Wankhede Stadium, where he scored a big double century when India last played a Test in Mumbai. Stating that he has always enjoyed playing at the Wankhede, Kohli said that he has always believed in gaining confidence from his innings and the impact he has had. The Indian captain believes that hard work and perseverance helps players get back in form.
