Kohli statement in press
“I believe there is too much noise about spinning tracks,” Virat Kohli said.
“The reason behind the success as a team is that we haven’t cribbed about any surface we have played on. We have always tried to improve,” Kohli added
“I am sure if our media is in a space to contradict those views or present views which say that it is unfair to criticize only spin tracks, then it will be a balanced a conversation,” Kohli added

“But the unfortunate bit is everyone plays along with that narrative and keeps making it news till the time it is relevant. And then a Test match happens, if you win on day 4 or 5, no one says anything but if it finishes in two days, everyone pounces on the same issue,” he added.
“I am sure even our people never wrote about the pitch when we lost in three days in New Zealand,” the skipper added
“It has always been the case that spinning tracks are criticized but when the ball seams a lot and teams are bundled out for 40-50, no one talks about it” Kohli said
