Virat kohli says

India captain Virat Kohli on Saturday said they are feeling "absolutely safe" in Guwahati despite the state-wide protests in Assam due to the Citizenship Amendment Act.

The security measures in Guwahati and inside the Barsapara stadium have been tightened ahead of the first T20I between India and Sri Lanka, with spectators only allowed to bring their purses and mobile phones on Sunday, the Assam Cricket Association confirmed.

"On the issue, I do not want to be irresponsible and speak on something that has, you know, radical opinions both sides. I need to have total information, total knowledge of what it means and what is going on and then be responsible to give my opinion on it.

"Because you can say one thing and then someone can say another thing. So, I would not like to get involved in something that I don't have total knowledge of and it's not going to be responsible on my part to comment on it. The city is absolutely safe. We didn't see any problems on the roads," Virat Kohli said.

Kohli was also asked about the proposed four-day Test to which he said that he wasn't in favour of any alterations which hurts the sanctity of the traditional five-day format.

"According to me, it should not be altered. As I said, the day-night is another step towards commercialising Test cricket and you know, creating excitement around it, but it can't be tinkered with too much. I don't believe so," Kohli said.
