IND vs SA: Virat Kohli will be India’s X-factor during Test series, says S. Sreesanth


S Sreesanth feels that Virat Kohli will be ‘X-factor’ for India during the upcoming Test series against South Africa this month.

India are yet to win a series in red-ball cricket in the rainbow nation after coming close in the last few occasions. Kohli has been one of the key players for India in South Africa, scoring 719 runs in 14 innings and hitting two hundreds and three fifties in the process.

The Indian star has an average of 51.36 in South Africa.

Speaking to the Firstpost, Sreesanth said that Kohli will be the X-factor for India as they chase a series win in the rainbow nation. The former pacer also feels that the Indian star takes it as a personal responsibility to deliver excellence every time he plays.

“Virat Kohli. Virat loves to keep proving, rather than to anybody but to himself. I think he’s that cricketer who actually plays with that pride and he takes that pride in a very good way, not in an egoistic way. So pride for me, and for Virat also I’m sure it’s like personal responsibility in delivering excellence. So, I will go with Virat and KL Rahul,” said Sreesanth.

Sreesanth also feels that this will be the best opportunity for India to win a Test series in South Africa and feels it will be a ‘dream come true’ for the team.

“I think this is the best opportunity. Since the time South Africa came back into the international scene, this time we do have a great opportunity and a great chance to win a series there which is like a dream come true.

“I would love to see India winning the Test series. It will be like winning the World Cup because winning against South Africa in South Africa is not going to be easy but as the ad says, ‘Mazaa ayeega’,” said Sreesanth.
