Mark Wood is all set to target the biggest cricketing scalp of them all when he will look forward to add Indian captain Virat Kohli to his illustrious list of victims on Thursday.
The best part about is that he has a happy knack of bagging the world's best players and will be aiming high when he returns to the England side at Trent Bridge for the first of three Royal London one-day internationals.
'In big games I've managed to get big wickets,' said Wood, who reports himself fit is all set to make a remarkable comeback after India defeated England by 2-1 in the T20 series. There's been Kane Williamson, Steve Smith, David Warner, Faf du Pl-ess people like that. I haven't bowled against Kohli yet but I'm hoping a huge player like him will focus me and I can get him out.
'I enjoy the challenge because it's almost like I've got nothing to lose. The guy's their best player so if I can get him out I must be doing something right. My feeling inside is that I want to show people how good I am by dismissing Kohli.' Wood, 28, has always had the talent to get the best players out but the question marks over him have always been his fitness and time and again he has been out of the team because of facing fitness issues. 'I'm a bit older and I've got more confidence in my body now through playing time,' said Wood.
'I'm sick of saying it but, as a fast bowler, you're never going to be a hundred per cent fit. I've been pretty good this year and my ankle has been fine. He is also looking forward to beat the Indian cricket team who have been on the top charts in every format of the game. 'India always want to be the best team in everything so this is a good chance to show them how well we're playing in our home conditions,' added Wood.
