“There’s so much attention on you back home. I love traveling away and playing in other countries across the world,” said Virat Kohli after the Indian cricket team landed in London to defend their Champions Trophy title.

Just a few days after the Manchester Arena blast, Kohli said what happened was “saddening and very disturbing for everyone who saw it”. He went on to say that as a “squad, you have time to focus on those factors, because eventually, you understand that you're here for a sporting tournament”.

He also said that BCCI is only following a due process by inviting fresh application for head coach's post with Anil Kumble's contract expiring at the end of Champions Trophy.
