Kohli, who captained India to a historic 5-0 whitewash of Zimbabwe in the one-day series recently, was criticised by former cricketers and commentators who wanted him to shed his hyperactive demeanour.
The 24-year-old had angrily reacted with on-field umpires after he was given out by the third umpire in the second one-day international on July 26 in Harare.
“The criticism has been with me for a long time and I had said before that I do not intend to cross the line at any point of time.
But I will not change my natural instinct which is to be aggressive as it helps me to focus and concentrate on my game,” Kohli told IANS on the sidelines of a promotional event here.
“Crossing the line is not on at all and I wouldn’t do it at any point of time. But when you have an emotional overflow, you tend to make a mistake. I am human and not a machine. Everyone makes mistakes and the point is we must learn from it and not repeat them.”
