India skipper Virat Kohli gives lots of compliments to the players for their outstanding performance.
“To come back with a win again, it’s a great feeling and a clinical performance. The first Test was good, and it was a clinical performance here. We discussed the performance and the opposition played out a good draw. The bowlers tried all their best, but the Kiwi batsmen stuck it out really well in Kanpur. Here there was more bounce and the fast bowlers got assistance as well, so it gave us a better chance to win,” Kohli said after the win.
