IND v ENG: The 231-Run Lead Took The Game Away From England, Says Virat Kohli
On the final day of the fourth Test, it took just eight overs for Virat Kohli-led India to wrap up the English innings for 195, beating them convincingly by an innings and 36 runs at Wankhede Stadium, thus clinching the five match series 3-0.
Seemed ecstatic and satisfied with his side’s performance, Kohli showered words of praise on his team-mates, who in the course of five days dominated each department of the game. Speaking in the post match presentation, the captain said the massive lead of 231 runs in the first innings snatched away England’s any chance of making a comeback. Kohli, who scored his third Test double century of the year, also said England looked weary and exhausted on the field and their body language didn’t send out any positive vibes either.
When asked about the Wankhede surface, the India Test skipper said the wicket had the natural bounce and was pleased to see how his side adapted to it so quickly.
“The 231-run lead deflated the opposition, we saw their body language and knew the game was wrapped up when we had that lead. We haven’t played on Indian wickets with too much bounce so the adjustment was very important. Credit to everyone.”
On Sunday, Virat Kohli scored a defiant 235 to help his side gain a mammoth lead even after conceding 400 in the first innings. His double century surely helped his numbers and awarded him the Man-of-the-Match award too.
India will now face England in the fifth & final Test match at the Chepauk Stadium in Chennai, starting December 16.
