“I tried to find gaps, run well, and score when I could”- Virat Kohli
After the game, Virat Kohli mentioned that his main goal was to ensure his team’s success by staying at the crease until the end. He stated:
“I wanted to make a big contribution. I’ve had a few fifties in World Cups and I haven’t really converted them so I wanted to finish it off this time and hang on till the end. I was just looking to hit the gaps, run hard and get the boundaries whenever needed.”
When discussing the camaraderie among the Indian players in the dressing room, Kohli further explained:
“It’s a great atmosphere in the change room. We’re loving each other’s company, the spirit is there for everyone to see. It’s a long tournament and you need that mood in the change room for guys to come out and play like this.”
Kohli and the Indian team will play their next match against New Zealand on Sunday, October 22, in Dharamsala.
