Sri Lanka head coach Nic Pothas seek a help from India skipper Virat Kohli to discuss how to overcome of the transition period, after the high profile retirements of Legends like Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene, but Indian captain said he will only do it once he is done with the ongoing limited overs series.
Kohli was asked about Pothas’ comment that they would interact with the Indian team management to overcome the transition period difficulties their team is facing currently. “We haven’t had any discussions yet. Those things may happen after the competitive zone is over and done with the series. I think that will happen after September 6 if it has to happen from their end,” Kohli said.
Kohli spoke about how India managed the transition phase after many of their own greats retired.
“It didn’t matter if we were playing against a side that has played 60 Tests each – if we are mentally more prepared than them then we are in a better position to win. So we decided to put our heads in that zone where experience didn’t matter much for us” he said.
