Exclusive: Virat Kohli’s First Interview Following 2023 World Cup Final Defeat Resurfaces



Cricket fans are eagerly waiting for the return of Virat Kohli to the field after his month-long absence following India’s loss to Australia in the World Cup final on November 19. India is gearing up to take on South Africa in a two-match Test series, starting with a Boxing Day Test at SuperSport Park in Centurion. Despite never winning a Test series in South Africa, Rohit Sharma’s leadership aims to change this historical record for the world’s top-ranked Test team.

Kohli’s presence is eagerly anticipated after missing the second Test on India’s last tour to South Africa due to a back injury, which resulted in a closely contested series. Kohli and Team India, under Rohit Sharma’s guidance, are determined to make history by winning the Test series, especially after the bitter memories of the World Cup final loss.

In an interview with Star Sports, Virat Kohli emphasized the significance of Test cricket in his career and the immense satisfaction it brings. Just four days before India’s crucial Test series against South Africa, Kohli had to leave for his home in Mumbai due to a family emergency. However, it is expected that he will return to South Africa before the start of the first Test match between India and South Africa.
