Virat Kohli on Tuesday attributed the innings thrashing of England in the fifth Test to the hard work and team spirit, saying the comprehensive 4-0 series victory reflected the character of the side. “After already clinching the series 3-0, to come out and perform like this, it is the evidence of the character in the side.
It was evident the way we batted, bowled. We wanted the youngsters to step up, someone like Lokesh Rahul, then Karun Nair, they came in after two Test matches. They got us to a position where there was only one winner,” Kohli said at the post match presentation ceremony.
“It’s always a tricky position. We understood that if we got a couple of wickets, it could slide pretty quickly. (Ravindra) Jadeja did his job, picking up seven wickets, it was great to watch,” Kohli added. Kohli lost four tosses out of five but India still registered four comprehensive victories.
