IPL 2016: Match-fixing difficult to control, says Virat Kohli

first_imgTest skipper Virat Kohli said it is difficult to curb fixing in cricket despite systems being put in place to curb malpractices in the game. He said it all depended on an individual player’s choice. (IPL Full Coverage|Points Table) Asked if enough is being done by cricketing authorities to curb the menace of fixing Kohli told a news channel: “Authorities are doing as much as they can to keep the sport clean. You obviously cannot go into someone’s room and tell them not to speak to someone in certain way. They can have protocols and they can have rules being set up and that’s how much you can do. Eventually it’s up to individual how he wants to go about his decisions. If individuals choose to do something wrong, doesn’t matter how much you control them.” (Also read: Virat Kohli-Sachin Tendulkar comparison is unfair, says Yuvraj Singh) ‘Have never encountered fixers’ On his part, Kohli said that he has been “fortunate” to have never encountered anything of that sort and would like it to remain like that for the rest of his life.”No, I have never encountered anything like that anything in my life fortunately. I love the sport too much. For me, to even explain myself for something that might not even lead to anything. As a cricketer, you feel sad from inside to encounter those situations. Fortunately, I haven’t and god willingly, I won’t in future also.” (Also read:  Why Virat Kohli could land in big trouble)advertisementAggression is key for Kohli Currently, India’s No 1 batsman, Kohli’s aggression has been a much talked about topic and the Delhi lad feels that as long as the aggression is expressed in a positive manner, sportspersons should have that trait in them.”This (aggression) is what helps me be at top of of my game. I would not change or trade that for anything else in the world. Every sportsperson should have that aggression or killer instinct — in a very good way and not in an arrogant way.”India too judgemental? Kohli thinks so Kohli also feels that at times, in India, a cricketer is often judged by his off-the-field life rather than his on-field achievements, which he does not support.”As a sporting nation, there is lack of patience in terms of judging someone too quickly. When I came into the team, I had tatoos, dress up in a certain way, I used to do things I felt were fine but maybe not in perfect mould of a stereotype Test cricketer. When I now see any youngster being judged early for being a bit more flamboyant, I correct them that there is nothing wrong.”Please judge him on what he doing on field, not judge him not in his own life or how he is as a person,” said the 27-year-old.Not records, victories make Kohli happy With 36 international hundreds to his credit (25 in ODIs and 11 in Tests), Kohli has been shattering records but for him, it is his contribution in team’s victory that gives him the sense of pleasure.”I never connect to those things (records) too much. I have never played for that but if in process of playing well wanting to win for my team, I end up crossing a milestone or breaking a record, I have been able to do it but it’s not driving me. I do not challenge myself to break records. I would rather focus on real things. The feeling a team gets to win a game, I want to be the guy to help the team achieving that.”(With PTI inputs)last_img read more
