The series against India and Australia might be over, however, skipper Virat Kohli said finally about the whole series fought on and off the field. Kohli made it clear that his team was extremely moved and would give it right back when they were poked.
This evidently had lots to perform with the stable fight that both India and Australia team fight not only in the middle innings but also outside the ground, which makes the series as spiteful ever.
After the match had ended of Dharamsala, the 28-year-old India’s skipper Kohli said in India’s favour, “Regardless of whether we are on top or not, we speak, if something pokes us we speak and give it right back.”
He said to official broadcasters ‘Star Sports’ that “All the people don’t digest it well but we take it very well and we give it back even better.”
He has been in the middle of things from even before the series start; Kohli was indifferent to the criticism.
Kohli said “Some people want to create some spice sitting at some part of the world. They don’t confront such situations themselves. The easiest thing to do is to just sit at home and write a blog or speak on the mike but to go out there and bowl and bat is different.”

Kohli was carefully enjoying the responsibility of leading a motivated side; he said “I like taking responsibility; every game that I play for India is an opportunity to do something special with my skills. I like getting involved in the game. The workload is something that needs to be kept in mind in future but right now when the body is responding well I am fine.”
He further added, “It’s been unbelievable. This is our best series win so far. The way we bounced back from World No 7 to No. 1 has been outstanding achievement and I am proud as a captain.”
“I thought (the series against) England was intense, but the way Australia gave us a fight it was amazing on their part but our guys kept bouncing back. We showed true character and maturity. The guys handled themselves well.”
