“The high quality he has, as a wicketkeeper and batsman, he can preserve doing this at a daily incidence for India and that’s solely going to assist the crew be in match-profitable conditions. Because he’s a particular expertise and may-do particular issues, an incredible knock and one of the better hundreds I have seen,” said Kohli in the post-match press conference.

In the ODI series, KL Rahul will captain the side after Kohli was removed from the white-ball captaincy and Rohit Sharma missed out due to a left hamstring injury.

As a person, I can positively say that I am wanting ahead to the ODI sequence and I am pushed to carry out in these ODI video games. I do not assume anybody will take something from what occurred on this Test match, the second innings extra so and take it into the ODIs.”
“We weren’t mauled, make no mistake, we had been aggressive all through. Even in the two-Test matches we misplaced, they needed to actually work exhausting and earn victories. It’s not like we threw in the towel and gave victories away. So, we’re conscious of that and if we capitalise on the vital moments, we have sufficient high quality in our aspect to maintain profitable matches constantly,” signed off Kohli.
