Former Pakistan bowler Danish Kaneria heaped praise over Indian skipper Virat Kohli for his captaincy in the second Test against England at Lord’s.

At the start of Day 5, the match looked in England’s favour, but the valiant efforts of Indian tail-enders and the entire bowling unit turned the results for India, who won by 151 runs and took a 1-0 lead in the five-match series.

In the middle of the match, there were plenty of heated moments between both sides with words of exchange amongst players was captured on the television cameras. Kaneria backed Kohli for the way he rotated his bowlers and said his aggression was superb on the field.

“Virat Kohli’s aggression was superb. He lead the way in the field and even his bowling changes were superb. So I don’t think such things will affect him and his team or put them under pressure,” Kaneria said on his YouTube channel.

Many former cricketers and experts in England have ridiculed the behaviour of the Indian skipper and few English dailies have criticised the on-field incidents of the Indian team.

Kaneria, who himself has toured to England during his playing days, said that it was a similar approach of English media to low down the morale of the opposition but the former Pakistan player feels this won’t affect the Indian team.

“England, through social media and media, are trying to down the other team by talking negatively. This was the same when we used to play against them. They couldn’t do anything on the ground so would try and bring something negative to take the mental level of opposition down. But I don’t think Virat Kohli and his men will be affected by these statements. Instead, it will increase further,” Kaneria said.
