India skipper Virat Kohli is probably the finest batsman when it comes down to chasing a certain target. The right-handed batsman has played a number of innings to show how perfect he is while pursuing a particular score.

While talking to Bangladesh opener Tamim Iqbal on his YouTube channel, Kohli revealed how his mind works while chasing a particular score. Adding to this, he further said that he doesn’t really feel any pressure even if the the target is 370-380.

Mentioning an instance about the same, Kohli talked about the match against Sri Lanka in Hobart where they needed some 330 odd in 40 overs and how he planned the innings and broke it into two T20 matches.

“When it comes to chasing targets, my mental state is simple — if someone says something to me from the opposition side, then I get more motivated. When I was younger, I used to watch matches on television. If India did not end up winning the match while chasing targets, I used to think if I was there, I would have won the match,” Kohli said in response.

The world has come to a standstill due to the coronavirus outbreak. India toured New Zealand earlier this year where they won the T20I series but lost the ODIs and Tests. They were later scheduled to play a three-match ODI series against South Africa.

But the first match of the series was washed away due to rain while the other two were called off due to COVID-19 outburst.

The IPL has also been postponed for an indefinite time.
