India registered a glorious win against England on Day 2 of the third test match & Captain Virat Kohli felt that it was quite a “bizarre game”.
Registering a victory by 10 wickets Rohit Sharma hit a winning six for India to seal victory in the Pink Ball Test in Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Thursday. The hosts have taken a 2-1 lead in the four match Test series with the fourth test match set to start from March 4th. After the match Kohli said, “I have never experienced this before. A bizarre game which got over in two days.”
While Joking that Ishant who was playing his 100th test match also didn’t get to bowl much, Kohli said, “Bumrah said I am getting work load management while playing. Ishant said I am playing my 100th game and still don’t get to bowl.”
Many fans were of the opinion that the batting quality was poor for both the teams during the third test match. But Virat Kohli felt that there was a lack of application among the batsmen. “We were 100 for 3 and then got bowled out for less than 150. It was just the odd ball turning and it was a good wicket to bat in the first innings. It was bizarre that 21 of the 30 wickets fell to straight balls, Test cricket is about trusting your defense. Lack of application ensured it was a quick finish,” he stated.
Further Praising Axar Patel for achieving another five wicket haul, Kohli joked that Gujarat has an art of producing left arm spinners. “I don’t know what it is with Gujarat and producing so many left arm spinners. You just cannot sweep to Axar but you can’t also keep on defending as he will just keep on bowling to you.” If the wicket has something, Axar is very lethal,” he added.
