"I think it's just a case of being boring, as bad as it sounds, just try to bore him down and keep him on strike"

Australia pace bowler Josh Hazlewood has announced that the Baggy Greens will be looking to “bore” India captain Virat Kohli during the fourth and final Test in Sydney.

Hazlewood’s comments come after Kohli has scored 499 runs at a brilliant average of 83.16 in the first three Tests.

“He’s performed very well in Adelaide and Melbourne and scored a lot of runs,” Hazlewood said. “He’s a key wicket for us and I think if we can attack and get him early, everyone else follows suit a bit.

“We’ll try to come up with something for Virat, and I think it’s just a case of being boring, as bad as it sounds, just try to bore him down and keep him on strike, keep the dots flowing, build that pressure and hopefully he’ll crack.

“He likes to score runs and score them pretty freely.┬áIf we can tie him down for long periods then we’ll hopefully get a rash shot.”
