Kohli says friendship comment was 'blown out of proportion'

India captain Virat Kohli today claimed his comment on friendship with the Australian team was "blown out of proportion" and he continues to be on good terms with a few cricketers from Down Under.

At the end of the enthralling four-match series, which India won 2-1 following victory in the Dharamsala Test, Kohli had said that his views on friendship with the Australians have changed.

"No, it has changed for sure. I thought that was the case but it has changed for sure. As I said in the heat of the battle, you want to be competitive but yeah I have been proven wrong. The thing I said before the first Test, I have certainly been proven wrong and you won't hear me say that ever again," Kohli had said.

However, the young captain, in a series of tweets, clarified that his comment was not meant for the entire Australian team.

"Only a couple of individuals. I continue to be in good terms with the few guys I know & who I've played with at RCB & that doesn't change," he wrote in his second tweet.

The series was mired in controversies with one following another. It all started when Australian captain Steve Smith took dressing room help in taking a DRS call and Kohli stopped short of calling him a cheat.
