Birmingham: England all-rounder Moeen Ali has set his sights on taking the prized wicket of India captain Virat Kohli during their big-ticket World Cup clash here Sunday. "Virat knows he's there to score runs for India, while I'm here to get him out (or score some myself).
It means a lot to get a player like him out but you can still be friends trying to do it," Ali, wrote for 'The Guardian'. "We have known each other since our under-19 days but over the past couple of years, at Royal Challengers Bangalore, we have become good friends.
I don't want to pump his tyres up too much before a big game but he is a motivated, driven and dedicated cricketer." "I see these final group games against India and New Zealand as an opportunity to be embraced not feared," Ali wrote.
