After an engaging last day of the 4th and final Test of the series played between India and Australia. In this last match, India drew the Test in substantial manner, at Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) and rookie captain, Virat Kohli said the output was satisfactory, but crossing the line would have been better.

India governed to get a draw. India were 7 wickets down, with about 12 overs left to go, Bhuvneshwar Kumar came out to the crease and alongside Ajinkya Rahane took India to honorable position. Virat Kohli applauded their attempt and said that they displayed a lot of intent.

Virat Kohli showed his gratitude to the Indian supporters and made a light-hearted joke about the Australian crowd too. He thanked all the Indian viewers who have supported them and the Australian viewer who have given them a difficult time. He also highlighted on the need to search bowlers who could “step up and deliver.” He added that they need to recognize such talent and get them in the team.

Collecting an amazing 692 runs at an average of 86.50, Virat Kohli said that it was a very satisfactory series for him. It was crucial to make runs after the England series. He also praised KL Rahul’s attempt with the bat. He said that Lokesh Rahul was very cool and composed coming from a tough first Test. He also stated that the Australian team may have enjoyed the brawl put up by the Indian team.

He praised the way Australia controlled despite the coming off the tragic period of the death of Phillip Hughes just a few days before this series. He said that Australia demonstrated great character coming off that (Phillip Hughes) incident.

When Virat Kohli was asked about India’s chances at the International Cricket Council World Cup 2015, he was quoted saying that: “We can win the World Cup if we believe in ourselves.” The International Cricket Council World Cup 2015 starts on 14th February in Australia and New Zealand and India will now look to move focus on the upcoming tri-series involving Australia and England. This tri-series is going to be important for all the three teams.
