Backed the Bowlers to Get 10 Wickets in 60 Overs, Says Virat Kohli
Virat Kohli heaped huge praises on the duo for working hard on their batting with the coaching staff. He also said that he backed the bowlers to get the 10 wickets in 60 overs. After the match he went on to say, “Super proud of the whole team. The way we stuck to our plans after being put in. The pitch didn’t offer much in the first three days. First day was the most challenging. The way we played in the second innings after being put under pressure - Jasprit and Shami were outstanding.
“We had the belief we can get them out in 60 overs. The tension in the field in our second innings, what happened there, helped us. Putting their hand up was something we were really proud of and we wanted to let them know (ovation for Bumrah-Shami). Batting coach has worked really hard with the boys. They have the desire in them to do well for the team. We know how priceless those runs are.
