India captain Virat Kohli believes that every game they play in the ICC Test Championship will be crucial and has stated that the team will not let up.
Virat Kohli, who has not yet left a game to secure a series victory against South Africa, will not let up in the third test. After the game, he said to Star Sports: “It was nice, but on the whole, every game has an even higher value and we will not take our foot off the gas in the third test.”
I’m looking for a result again and hope that I can do it 3-0. As these points are important, we understand that it will be very important in the Test Championship at all stages to play also away. And nobody will ever relax, that’s a guarantee. “
Kohli played a big role in the defeat of South Africa in Pune. The partnership between Ajinkya Rahane and him was crucial, especially to avert the threat of Vernon Philander and Kagiso Rabada on the second morning. “You have to look forward to this kind of session and you have to look forward to playing against the new ball the next morning,” he said.
The skipper also praised Rahane’s eyelash and said how much he enjoys beating with the Native American No. 5. We are very proud of it. I think he really focuses on me at the other end because he gives me regular feedback if I’m doing something wrong. And vice versa for him, too. “
His team is now number 1 in the MRF Tires ICC Men’s Test Team rating, but it was not an easy trip up. When Kohli took over as captain, India slumbered in seventh place. He attributes a change to the turnaround setting.
“The good news is, when we started as a group, we were at number 7 and the only way up was we’ve set a few things that say if you want to promote Indian cricket, these are the things Each of us, working hard every day in training, not coming here and wasting your time, contributing well in training, training purposefully, and slowly, these things will get results from players we have, to be honest, be. “
Kohli also attributes a change of attitude to progress in his own game. In the last 40 tests, he has scored seven double scores, none before, of which the last one (254 *) is the biggest.
“Everybody is going through a natural process where he wants to prove a point – for himself, at first in his career – and then you may not be mature enough to deal with the things that happen from the outside, so sometimes you play and you It’s I think I’m in a phase of my career where I’m happy to play as I am and make a contribution to my team. I want to take a calmer attitude over the years because you feel safer as a player, where you are in your own environment and in your own game. “
