Ranchi T20I: Kohli will be key player in Indian side, says Tim Paine

Ranchi T20I: Kohli will be key player in Indian side, says Tim Paine

Ranchi, Oct 6 (UNI) Ahead of the first game of the three-match T20I series starting here tomorrow, Australia batsman Paine believes Virat Kohli will be the most important player in the Indian side. Addressing mediapersons on the eve of the match, Paine said,"Obviously, he is a really good player. Not many teams had much success against him. He will be a huge wicket tomorrow night and in the whole series." "We had a brief chat about him in the team meeting last night. I don't want to get into the details. We certainly have got a couple of plans, we will see how it goes," added he. Speaking about the hosts who earlier handed won the ODI sries 4-1, the 32-year-old said,"India are playing some really good cricket. They are high on confidence. We are going to come out firing tomorrow night." The Tasmania batsman further spoke on his selection in the Australian side saying,"It's a turnaround. I was looking to probably retire and accept a job with Kookaburra company. Then I had the opportunity to stay with Tasmania for another couple of years. Then I got picked to play in the T20Is in Sri Lanka and another opportunity here. It's turned around pretty quickly and I am grateful for that." Paine, who has featured in four Tests and 26 ODIs for Australia also expressed pride on his short cricketing career. "I am really proud of what I have achieved in cricket. I don't look at what might have been. I am happy with what's happened so far and hopeful that it will continue for another few years." Commenting on his future plans, he said,"First and foremost, it's to do well tomorrow night. I know it's a bit of a cliche but someone my age and my position, it would be foolish to look too far ahead," said Paine. "I just have to keep reminding myself to do well in a new series, and then when I head home to Australia I hope to start the Shield season and the JLT Cup really well. Not looking too far ahead," Paine signed-off. UNI AK KU PY 2037
