Ind vs Eng:Indian captain Virat Kohli appeared annoyed at the English batsmen running on the pitch during batting. England batsmen were seen running on the pitch in their second innings. Kohli was heard saying in the stump mic that OA, Menon (Nitin Menon, umpire), straight run is also running in between. What is this.
After losing the match, Indian team captain Virat Kaheli said that there is no excuse. We are a team who accept their failures and learn from it. One thing is certain, now the next three matches are going to be very difficult and we will not have to lose them in this way. For the future, we now have to understand the pitches and also know what the bowlers are going to do. We know how to make a comeback. We will now give our best in the next matches.
Ind vs Eng: Virat kohli praises Ashwin
Kohli said that I do not think we managed to put pressure on him in the first innings. As a bowling unit, the fast bowlers and Ashwin did well in the first innings, but we needed to score a few more runs and put pressure on them. Must say it was a slow wicket and not helping the bowlers, it made it easier for the batsmen to rotate the strike. This was not seen in the first two days, but the credit goes to England, they kept us under pressure and put up a big score. In the second innings our body language was not positive. We were better in the first innings with the bat. We have to understand things and improve it as soon as possible. The England team was far more professional than us throughout the match.
SG ball quality not good
Virat Kohli once again looked annoyed with the quality of SG ball. Kohli supported Ravichandran Ashwin’s statement that by 60 overs this ball had become very soft and its threads were opened. He said yes, but I would like to say that this is not my excuse.
Don’t regret for kuldeep
Kohli said that he does not regret not feeding Chinaman spinner Kuldeep Yadav. When you are playing with two off-spinners, Kuldeep also becomes his type of spinner. In such a situation, you need variety in bowling. We were absolutely sure about what kind of team we have to feed.
England pacer James Anderson said, “There was a little reverse swing here and it gave us a little bounce and we were able to get off to a great start. It (reverse swing) was huge for me. It shows you that you always In the match. The pitch was a little slow. So when the ball was swinging in the air it helped me. “
