There were no demons in the wicket: Kohli
India may have wrapped up the first Test against South Africa in just under three days but skipper Virat Kohli on Sunday said that there were “no demons” in the wicket, though he admitted it was more of a bowlers’ game. “I don’t think there were any demons in the wicket, the ball did not turn square at any stage, batsmen had to apply themselves but it was a bowlers’ game,” said Kohli.
He said it was important to win the first Test after losing both the T20 and ODI series in the past. “First Test as captain at home was a special occasion for me. Seeing the way things have gone in the past month, the way we played here, a lot of credit has to go to the team,” said the skipper, who was playing his first Test as captain on the home soil.
