The teams are on equal terms – Virat Kohli
Before boarding the flight to London from Mumbai, Virat Kohli and Indian coach Ravi Shastri spoke in a press conference. Kohli mentioned both the teams are on equal terms and that the game will be decided based on who wins each session.
Many former cricketers have backed the Black Caps as the favorites considering they will play two matches in England leading up to the all-important ICC World Test Championship final.
“The conditions are as potent for us as New Zealand. We are going to board the flight thinking that we’re on equal terms and whichever team performs well session-by-session, hour-by-hour, is going to win that championship,” Virat Kohli had said before leaving Mumbai.
When asked whether he was under any pressure, Virat Kohli said that he is under no pressure and is only focused to take Indian cricket forward.
“Have no pressure on me. I just want to take Indian cricket forward. There was no pressure on me previously and nor there is any sort of pressure on me now,” he said.
