was no plan. He did not want to talk about the game. He just talked about something else to me. He was pretty calm and relaxed and he was doing well and did not want to talk about the game. He is one of the few guys who plays well in every format and hats off to him to be so fit in all three formats of the game."
Asked about the condition of the pitch, Kohli stated," Yesterday was the easiest day to bat on this wicket. After the fresh wicket on Friday, it evened out a bit on the second day.
When we came this morning to bat on, two balls I remember went under the bat and one went other way. I was a bit surprised as how the wicket was just coming off.
"If they had more slow bowlers in the team, you could have seen the difference of that wicket. I think the spinners could get lot of turn and bounce tomorrow with the hard ball and the wicket getting roughed up by the day is going to important in this Test match. It is just matter of bowling in the right areas and have purchase of the wicket."
Kohli declined comment on whether Dhoni should permanently bat at No 6.
"I cannot say anything unless he stays in that slot for a long time. He has been batting at No 7 for a while and did not get ample opportunities to get big runs. People doubted his Test batting. He was not getting ample opportunities and when the team is five down, if he has to go, negotiate the situation and get a hundred, it will be quite difficult.
"Coming at number six, there are more opportunities to get settled and he is one of the more experienced guy to play with the lower order. He knows how to play with lower order.
That is huge difference that he could make coming at number six in Test matches. It might just be the click work for us in batting order."
Dhoni's batting today had a dash of Virender Sehwag in it
