India skipper Virat Kohli, who guided the Men in Blue to their highest-ever T20I chase in the first T20I against West Indies, believes while it is important for the players to play hard and aggressive cricket, what is more important is the need to respect the opponents.

Kohli had a run-in with West Indies pacer Kesrick Williams in the 14th over when Kohli flicked a ball for a six on the leg-side. After playing that shot, the 31-year-old brought out his notebook celebration, making the Hyderabad crowd go wild, as Williams looked on in amusement. After the match, Kohli revealed that the two have a bit of history from a 2017 match. — IANS
