“What happened on the field really charged us up” – Virat Kohli
The Lord’s tie witnessed some fiery exchanges from both camps with players from both sides going up against each other. Speaking at the end of the game, Virat Kohli highlighted that those incidents charged them up and go for the win. Kohli said:
“I was part of the winning Test match last time when I was a player under MS [Dhoni]. That was pretty special as well, Ishant bowled an outstanding spell. In that game, we put them under pressure on day four itself.
“But this one, to get a result in 60 overs, when we all thought let’s just have a crack at what we have in front of us… It’s quite special and especially when someone like Siraj is playing for the first time at Lord’s and bowling the way he did, [it] was outstanding. As I said, what happened on the field [the verbals] really charged us up and gave us that extra motivation to finish the game off,” he added.
