Team India has won the first test of the two-match test series and takes the lead by 1-0. Vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane awarded with the player of the match award. He scored fifty in the first inning and scored a century in the second innings. During this match, Virat Kohli was looking so happy and started ’dandiya’ dance during the field. Virat Kohli also started to dance during the first ODI between West Indies versus India.
Virat Kohli in the post-match press conference after the First test, he said,
“It’s a responsibility that I’m fulfilling. It’s a blessing that I am in a position to contribute to my team in more than one way. Nothing is possible without the team. I am taking the decisions, but it is up to the individuals to do the execution.”
“Jinx excellent in both innings, KL solid in both innings too. Mention to Vihari too. We had to come back in this game 3-4 times, so that is positive. Moving forward from Australia. Bumrah’s workload is most important, which is why he didn’t play any white-ball games after the World Cup.”
“He’ll be a key factor for us as long as the World Test Championship continues. Shami is the same and Ishant is a banker, reliable always. Umesh is there too, and Navdeep is waiting in the wings. We are settled as our bowling options, but managing workloads will be important.”
“Vihari got a nod because the combination is important. He’s an effective part-time bowler and helps us when we need to catch up with the over-rate. We have a group discussion, and then we decide what’s best for the team. There will always be opinions about the XI, but people will know that it’s in the interest of the team,” Kohli explained.
