Kohli was phenomenal despite all the noise: Dravid

Johannesburg: India Test skipper Virat Kohli was phenomenal despite “all the noise around him” and will soon be scoring big runs, head coach Rahul Dravid said on Sunday, supporting the superstar batter who has been locked in a war of words with the BCCI over how his captaincy at the cue ball ended.

Adding to the drama is that Kohli hasn’t shown up for pre-match media interactions since then BCCI President Sourav Ganguly’s description of the sequence of events that followed his decision to relinquish the T20 captain and subsequent removal as ODI skipper.
