    Australia would be 'worst blokes in the world' if they celebrated like Kohli, says Justin Langer



    The Indian pace bowling contingent of Ishant Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami and in particular, offspinner Ravichandran Ashwin, did well to keep the lid on the Australian batsmen picking up seven wickets on Day 2 of the first Test at Adelaide on Friday.

    Ashwin was the pick of the bowlers with three wickets in his 33 overs going for 50 runs. For most part of the day, run-scoring proved difficult for Australia. The run-rate never exceeded 3.0 in any of the three sessions.

    Australia’s defensive mindset in their own backyard was surprising to Sachin Tendulkar. “#TeamIndia should make the most of this situation and not lose their grip. The defensive mindset by the Australian batsmen at home is something I’ve not seen before in my experience. @ashwinravi99 has been very effective and has played a role to help the team be on top, for now,” he tweeted on Friday.

    Australia head coach Justin Langer conceded the run-rate was low, but he was happy with the approach adopted by the hosts, who are coming off a harrowing time in the aftermath of the ball-tampering scandal. However, he said that there won’t be any sort of antics like India captain Virat Kohli’s in the Test series. “If we did that at the moment we’d be the worst blokes in the world,” Langer told Fox Cricket on Saturday.

    “It’s a fine line, isn’t it? That’s the truth of it. But I love seeing the passion.”

    He did not hesitate to say that the Indian batsmen adopted the same approach and got bowled out. “But go back a day, against a very experienced Indian side, and they did the same thing. When they went for their big drives we got them all out,” Langer said.

    “It’s got a lot to do with this wicket, it’s got a lot of grass on it … it’s really, really hard work, it’s nipping around, you never really quite feel like you’re in.”

    According to Langer, Tendulkar, who played his first match against Australia in 1991, faced a different set of players as compared to the inexperienced batting side, evidently missing Steve Smith and David Warner, serving suspensions.

    “The teams that Sachin would have played against started with Allan Border and David Boon, and Steve Waugh and Mark Waugh, and Ricky Ponting,” he said.

    “Guys that had great Test match experience and they knew their game, were comfortable in their own skin and they knew what to expect. Whereas we’ve got a team at the moment who are very inexperienced in Test match cricket, particularly our batting side.

    “They’re just fighting as hard as they can, they’re fighting their backsides off, they’re always looking to score but the wicket is tough, and it’s a slow outfield. That’s the beauty of Test cricket, it’s bloody hard work.”

    Langer said that he needs to be patient with the side under Tim Paine. “We have to be patient with them. You can’t give these guys 30 or 50 matches of Test match experience. They have to earn it.”

    He admitted though that Australia could have attacked Ashwin a little better. “Particularly our lefities, we need to have methods of scoring on both sides of the wicket,” he said.

    “There’s areas we can get better at, but I’m definitely not getting caught up in this ‘we’re too slow, we’re not attacking enough’ business.”

    Nothing wrong with his celebration. He backs it up with performance anyway.

    Only thing is he shouldn't screem up close in front of a batsmen. From a distance is fine but I think it's a bit disrespectful to screem in front of someone especially when they haven't disrespected you.

    Australia would be 'worst blokes in the world' if they celebrated like Kohli, says Justin Langer

    ADELAIDE: Australian coach Justin Langer says if his players were to celebrate wickets like Indian captain Virat Kohli does, they would now be seen as "the worst blokes in the world".

    Langer also took umbrage at Sachin Tendulkar's "defensive mindset" tweet following Australia's slow batting on the second day of the opening Test against India.

    Kohli was his usual animated self on Friday, celebrating Australian wickets with gusto. Langer said he "loved seeing that passion" but felt Australia players would be judged differently if they did the same.

    "He's (Kohli) a superstar of the game and he's the captain. We've talked for as long as I can remember in Australian cricket teams that you want to keep the opposition captain down as much as possible. You love seeing that passion in sport," Langer said.

    "Mind you I think if we did that at the moment we'd be the worst blokes in the world. It's a fine line isn't it?"

    "That's the truth of it, but I love seeing the passion, that is great passion. But as I said there's a fine line."

    The head coach did concede the team was playing to a different standard of scrutiny, a fallout of the ball-tampering fiasco in South Africa in March.

    Earlier, Tendulkar wrote on his twitter handle, "TeamIndia should make the most of this situation and not lose their grip. The defensive mindset by the Australian batsmen at home is something I've not seen before in my experience."




    The legendary batsman's comment did not go well with Langer, who defended his inexperienced batting line-up's approach.

    "The teams that Sachin would have played against started with Allan Border and David Boon, and Steve Waugh and Mark Waugh, and Ricky Ponting," Langer said.

    "Guys that had great Test match experience and they knew their game, were comfortable in their own skin and they knew what to expect."

    "Whereas we've got a team at the moment who are very inexperienced in Test match cricket, particularly our batting side."

    Tendulkar, who played his first match against Australia in 1991, and his last in 2013, faced a different era of Australian cricket compared to the current side that is rebuilding in the wake of the ball-tampering fiasco.

    It doesn't take long to skim over.

    Anyway, he's not complaining or anything. He said he enjoyed seeing Kohli's passion, just that in Australia's current situation they'd be criticized if they celebrated like that.

    As much as I dislike Kohlis character, all he is doing is celebrating, ab it overt he top yes but the Aussies were not regarded as terrible blokes because they celebrated. It has to do with a number of different factors, such as ball tampering, really crude remarks made during the game (who remembers Clarke's "we'll break your ****ing arm"?) and at times racist fans.

    Get over it Langer.

    Yes
    If Kohli was chucking he would have still continued to bowl with the same action
    If Kohli was tested positive,he wouldn't have faced any ban
    If Kohli was found guilty of fixing,he would have continued without having to wait for 5 years like someone

    What a hypocrite this Langer is. During his era and when he played Aussies used to abuse the hell out of opposition, with some portions of the crowd being drunk off their *** and shouting obscenities. Big deal he celebrates however he wants to.

    Now that his team is getting a proper beating lead by a guy who has given it with the bat, and shows them similar attitude, coach saheb has the audacity to cry foul.

    Actually I'm glad Kohli is giving it to Aussies, and if I were him I'd take the crowd booing as a positive as well. Shows he's gotten under the skin of the Australians. In 20+ years they haven't faced a guy like him, one who can perform (tbh yet to, in this series, but he will) and also has the charisma and personality to play mind games. Think the West Indians were the last people to challenge Aussies like this on their own turf, Shoaib Akhtar as well.

    This is why Kohli may end up as a bigger cricketing personality at the end of his career than Sachin. He performed with the bat, but was also way more polarizing because of his greater passion and intensity of the game.

    They don’t even show the bowlers celebrate their own wicket, lol.
    They want to paint him as a villain to add fuel to the Aus vs India "rivalry".

    Part of me thinks its a bit over the top but then another part of me takes sadistic satisfaction seeing the aussies get a taste of their own medicine.

    Australia need to stop concentrating on Kohli and not underestimate the rest of the Indian team. I feel as they are becoming obsessed with whatever Kohli does.

    They also should remember they still have a world class bowling attack which can cause India problems.

    Well whether you like it or not, Aussies have always had this thing against teams from the subcontinent. They look down upon us. They cant accept the fact that we can also sledge.

    Aussies should be the last to give the world a lecture on how to behave.

    Nothing new here. Kohli has been celebrating like this since I started watching him play, especially if the batsmen is a top order batsmen. Just because Australians are trying to “change”, doesn’t mean India need to change or stop celebrating.
