Mumbai: India and Australia have had a long-standing rivalry in particular Virat Kohli and now retired Aussie speedster Mitchell Johnson. However, it looks like the heat does carry on after retirement.

With an eye on the second semis berth in Group 2, Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led Team India will lock horns with Australia in Mohali on Sunday in what is almost a virtual quarterfinal.

Earlier, during the pre-match conference, Kohli expressed how he savours pressure situations. “For me stepping into the cricket field is an opportunity, not a pressure situation. I look at it as a challenge that I need to overcome,” he said.

Kohli had said that if the Aussie players have a go at him, it only helps him perform better. Johnson took to Twitter and said, “Kohli went missing during the World Cup semifinal against Australia.”

The 34-year-old Aussie was slammed by Indian fans on Twitter but Johnson was smart enough with his tongue-in-cheek comments.

 

In the 2015 World Cup Down Under, Kohli scored only one run after he was caught by wicketkeeper Brad Haddin off Johnson’s delivery. India lost that semis by 95 runs.
