Mitchell Johnson is excited for the IPL, talks Twitter battles, and his respect for Virat Kohli in his latest column for Fox Sports... Being a cricketer in India is unlike any other job in the world.The sheer number of fans here and the passion they have for the game makes the time I spend off the field in India almost as intense as the time I spend on it. Dont get me wrong - the supporters here are amazing, its just that on occasions, things have threatened to get a little out of hand.There was a time last year when I felt a bit concerned about my safety. It wasnt that we were in serious danger - although it felt close - but the sheer number of people involved made the whole experience pretty intimidating.After having a quiet meal with a couple of my Kings XI Punjab teammates in a Dharamsala restaurant, people began to notice us, and seemingly within seconds there were people hanging off doors just to get a look at us.Things soon escalated and before I knew it I had people grabbing onto me, just trying to touch me. I had to whack their arms off me just to get into the car. Then they started shaking the car.It was a whole new experience and pretty crazy. However, I want to make it clear the people that day had no intention of hurting me - theyre just so fanatical and so excited to see cricketers and this is the way they express that fanaticism. Indias fans are some of the most passionate in the world according to Johnson At times like that youve just got to accept this is what life is like as a cricketer in India. There are times when it can all feel like its a bit much, but you need to understand where the locals are coming from. They hardly ever get to see their heroes up close in the flesh so its understandable how passionate they are when they see us.It certainly doesnt detract from the awesome experience that is playing in the IPL, and if anything some of the players - particularly the younger ones who are in awe of the big-name guys - actually enjoy the extra attention.MY TWITTER BATTLESOne man who definitely thrives on extra scrutiny and pressure is Virat Kohli.The man is a superstar and he showed why during the World Twenty20, when he almost single-handedly dragged India into the final.You might have seen that I had a little dig at Virat on Twitter before Indias match against Australia. That was just an attempt by me to throw him off his game but given he scored 82 off 51 balls, I dont think it was such a smart move! Indias Virat Kohli celebrates after victory in the World T20 clash with Australia Maybe I shouldnt have said anything but thats the beauty of Twitter - anyones opinion can be broadcast to the world. I didnt expect my comment to get the level of response that it did, and I probably didnt need to reply to the angry responses from Indian fans.But to be honest that stuff doesnt bother me at all. In the past it would have affected me, but now that Ive got a bit more freedom to express my opinion, I can just laugh it off.I dont mind stirring the pot - I guess I just need to be careful about who Im having a go at!VIRAT AND MEYou didnt need to see my tweet to know Virat and I have a bit of a rivalry. Johnson celebrates the wicket of Kohli during 2015 World Cup semi-final Weve had our differences and most of it stems from the 2014 Adelaide Test, when a ball I threw hit Virat on the body. I was legitimately trying to run him out but he didnt like what I did. When he made some comment in the media that night about having no respect for me as a player, thats when I got really annoyed.Having said that, Virat is the kind of player youd want in your team. Hes a real fighter and to be honest hes a bit like most of us were in the Australian team. We go pretty hard on the field, and hes got that about him as well.The fact he plays the game like us is probably why weve rubbed each other the wrong way. If I sit back and digest it properly, were actually quite similar in the way we approach the game. Johnson is excited to face Kohli (left) and his RCM teammates like Chris Gayle (right) I cant wait to come up against him again and his Royal Challengers Bangalore team-mates in the IPL.RETURNING TO CRICKETSince my final Test match in November last year I havent played any competitive cricket, save for one grade match in Perth.The good sign for me is Im incredibly excited for the IPL to get underway now. Thats certainly not how I was feeling this time last year when I was really flat and physically exhausted after a long Australian summer that included a World Cup. Johnson says he cant wait to put on his King XI uniform again Now Im genuinely pumped to get back onto the field, and even training with my teammates this week gave me a rush I havent felt in a while.A lot of people think the IPL is all about money but I can guarantee you it isnt. I would find it really hard to be motivated if I was just playing for money - you have to actually have your heart in it.I know I do, and I cant wait to pull on that Kings XI uniform again.For the full article, click here.

Marqise Lee Jersey .S. womens soccer team to a 2-0 win over China in Colorado in the afternoon.LIVERPOOL, England -- Steven Gerrard converted a penalty in the third minute of stoppage time to earn Liverpool a 2-1 victory over Ludogorets Razgrad in the Champions League after a frantic finish to the Group B game at Anfield on Tuesday. Dani Abalos goal in the opening seconds of injury time cancelled out Mario Balotellis 82nd-minute strike -- his first for Liverpool -- and looked like earning a draw for Ludogorets, a Bulgarian minnow making its debut in the competitions group stage. But Canadian international goalkeeper Milan Borjan brought down substitute Fabio Borini moments later and Gerrard slotted home the spot kick to complete a successful return to Europes elite competition for Liverpool after five years out. It was Liverpools long-awaited return to what the five-time European champions regard as their habitat and the club played it up, with a sea of flags and scarves decorating all corners of Anfield before kickoff and a mosaic of five European Cups held up by Kop. They have missed these big European nights in these parts and there was as much relief as joy when Gerrard -- the only survivor from Liverpools last Champions League match in December 2009 -- sent Borjan the wrong way from the spot. But this arguably was an even bigger night for Ludogorets, a team that didnt even exist at the turn of the century and only turned professional in 2010. The Bulgarian champions did nnot look overawed on the biggest night of their lives, famously made possible by defender Cosmin Motis penalty saves in a shootout win against Steaua Bucharest in the qualifying playoff when filling in as goalkeeper.dddddddddddd And they could easily have drawn or even won the game, with Roman Bezjak rolling a shot against the foot of the post when clean through with the score at 0-0. Balotelli had been a peripheral figure until he made a goal out of nothing, controlling Alberto Morenos cross from the left, beating his marker with a touch and poking a fine finish into the corner for his first goal since joining from AC Milan last month. Liverpool had been limited to half-chances in a scrappy before that, with Borjan -- signed on Friday to solve a goalkeeping crisis -- not having a shot to save in the first half. Liverpools build-up play was inaccurate and predictable, but Jordan Henderson delivered some incisiveness in the 53rd minute when he lofted a pass toward Javier Manquillo. Virgil Misidjan failed to clear and Manquillo, with only Borjan to beat, scooped his shot over the bar. Ludogorets remained dangerous on the counterattack and when Gerrard lost concentration, Bezjak ran onto a quickly taken throw-in, sprinted clear and poked a shot over in the 66th. The striker then went even closer by hitting the post before a mad finish of three goals in a 10-minute span. ' ' '
