Kohli says friendship comment was "blown out of proportion'"

India made short work of the 106 runs they needed to win the fourth Test against Australia claiming an 8 wicket victory that gives them a 2-1 series win. "They were meant to be light-hearted comments with the utmost respect to the IPL which I have thoroughly enjoyed through the years", Hodge said.
This series brought in a new record for Captain Virat Kohli, under whose captaincy team India won seven consecutive test series and nine consecutive series in all formats. "I think usually what's said on the field stays on the field".
"Knowing Virat, he would have never done that and these people. look, if you want to be in the headline, you can say anything you want, and it's just about making a headline or trying to get your name in the press by making such statements".
Rahane was the stand-in skipper for India in the decider of the Test series at Dharamsala as Kohli had to sit out due to a shoulder injury. "I did not categorically say the whole Australian team but.", read the first tweet.
However, after what all happened between and during Tests, the Indian captain had declared those friendships irretrievably broken, and the relationship and trust he thought he had with the Australian players has been tarnished.
"I'm hopeful, as Gujarat Lions coach that when we play RCB in a couple of weeks, that he's not playing", Hodge said.

Asking Swamy to come back on March 31, the court said: "You make an effort, if you don't succeed, then come back to us". These are issues where all the parties can sit together and arrive at a consensual decision to end the dispute.
"That's the way Australia have always played their cricket from the Steve Waugh days", Ganguly said. The 2017 Border-Gavaskar Test series has turned out to be one of the lowest points in relations between the Indian and Australian cricket teams, with players from both sides not holding themselves back from having a go at each other.
Cricket Australia chairman David Peever paid tribute to Smith, who scored 499 runs as Australia flirted with their first series win in India since 2004, highlighting the captain's "gracious" demeanour.
Earlier the former Australian batsman had raised questions over Kohli's priorities and had said that you (Kohli) had be pretty dirty if you don't try to win a valuable series against the men from down under and prepare yourself for the IPL.
India have only lost one of their last 24 home Tests, that reversal coming in Pune last month when Virat Kohli's side were sensationally skittled for 105 and 107 on their way to a 333-run defeat.
Kohli's own behaviour was parodied in the Australian media, some of whom disparagingly compared him to US President Donald Trump.
