Virat Kohli and Team is ready for World Test Championship
When asked about how he feels now after becoming India’s successful Test captain, the player without any pride said it is a team effort.
“Being the most successful Test captain? It’s a by-product of the team we have. Our bowlers are amazing. Shami was great, Ishant bowling his heart out, Jadeja bowling a long spell. Captaincy is just a ‘C’ in front of your name. It’s a collective effort,” Kohli said after the match.
“Pretty comprehensive again. Played really good cricket over four days. Getting the result in the manner that you want is crucial. Were in some tricky situations. Took a lot of character from the boys collectively.”
“For us, it’s just the start of the Championship. Whatever’s happened in the past is irrelevant. Look forward to keeping continuing playing good cricket,” Kohli said.
The team is in the top of World Test Championship’s point table with 120 points. The young player Hanuma Vihari 111 runs and 53 not out have given Windies huge target. Ajinkya Rahane, Vice-captain, century after two years has also proved him a beneficial player. Bowlers input in the team is unforgettable. Jasprit Bumrah, Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Shami and Ravindra Jadeja picked the Windies wickets with their apt technique and understanding of the field.
