Virat Kohli shared his thoughts on the game

In the post-match press conference, Virat Kohli said that the game should not be so long. He said, “You talked about the last one. This was because I could not join some of them before. The game shouldn’t have dragged on that long and we probably should (have) been chasing 4-5 in the last over and not 11.”

“So it was important to keep my composure and at least put a boundary on the team and I was able to do that and I’m grateful for that,” he added.

We took our chances, we were brave – Rohit Sharma

Indian captain Rohit Sharma, while talking about the attempts in the last few games, said, “We took advantage of the opportunity and were brave as well. Sometimes it doesn’t come off. There are also areas for improvement. It’s not easy to come back against a tough team after a break. It will take some time for them (Bumrah and Harshal). Hopefully they can get back on track in the next series.”
