Just The Way These Guys Bowl Together Has Been A Hallmark Of Our Team – Virat Kohli
In the post-match presentation, Virat Kohli said that winning the toss and batting first was a tough challenge for the team. He elaborated:
” Winning the toss, batting first overseas is a tough challenge. Credit to Mayank and KL for the way they set it up. We knew we were in pole position with anything over 300-320. Knew the bowlers will do the job. Spoke about it in the change room – the fact he didn’t bowl much in the first innings, it allowed SA to get around 40 more runs (Bumrah).”
Virat Kohli further showered praise on the Indian bowling unit which consists of Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj, Jasprit Bumrah, Ravichandran Ashwin and Shardul Thakur. He said:
“Just the way these guys bowl together has been a hallmark of our team getting a result in difficult situations. Absolutely world-class talent (Shami). For me, he’s in the best three seamers in the world at the moment. His strong wrist, his seam position and his ability to hit a length consistently. Got so much confidence out of Johannesburg last time. It’s a ground we love playing at.”
