What Kohli said after Defeats England by 15 runs?

The 28-years-old Indian skipper said after defeats England by 15 runs “We were wondering if we had a good start were we would have ended up…it wasn’t good batting early on. Two of the greats stood up, that is what the team management envisioned (the prospect of both Yuvraj and Dhoni in the playing eleven).”

“Getting 381 from 25 for 3 was outstanding. We knew we’d get wickets at some stage or the other but we bowled at the more difficult part of the day. The guys showed really good character. We pulled it back nicely in the end.”

Kohli added “Having won the series, just before the Champions Trophy, the key will be for us to express ourselves and work out what is the best opening partnership. Two guys who had a really good Test series (Ravindra Jadeja and R Ashwin) stepped up and had we not picked up those wickets I don’t know where the game would have gone. I’d say we are only at 75 percent of our potential. We hope to play to our full potential in Kolkata.”

“International Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh said about the performance in the domestic season “In the domestic season I’ve been hitting the ball well.”

“Me and MS understood the situation; we had to start again. I was trying to hit the ball down the ground and once we got going I thought we started to attack at the right time.”

Singh added “We just wanted to get one partnership going then we were able to play a lot of shots. We were thinking 340-350. It’s probably by best innings. I started as a lower-order batsman, the higher you bat the more balls you get to play – 150 was a target for me.”

“I wanted to prove a point to myself. I knew it was coming. Diet has been the key, when you pass 30 you have to work harder at your fitness.”

ODIs and T20Is Indian Captain Virat Kohli was an honour to his young player Kedar Jadhav for his ‘outstanding’ knock of 76-balls 120 in the first ODI against England, saying that it as one of the best calculating innings he had seen.

Last night Kohli (122 of 105 balls) and Jadhav, whose 120 was his career-best, smashed excellent hundreds to help India pursue down the stiff target of 351 for a three-wicket win in the first of the three-match ODI series.

According to the sources, captain Kohli stated at the post-match press conference that “One word for it is outstanding. He (Jadhav) put a lot of pressure into the spinners. It was one of the best calculative innings I have seen, 150 strike rates were outstanding. Some of the shots he played. He told it was instinctive. I could not believe.”

Kohli and Jadhav made a together partnership of 200 runs for the fifth wicket to set up the platform for the win. Jadhav hit four sixes and 12 fours in his effective innings of over 150 strike rate.

“Just to have another guy who is willing to do from any situation, to keep pushing, knew how exactly to bat on this pitch which was even better to bat on in the second innings. His shots were all clean, not slogs, and that’s way to bat at number 6. Was glad I was out there with him,” said Kohli.

The 28-years-old Indian captain said Jadhav was disheartened that he could not get the team past the victory line against New Zealand in the earlier ODI series. “He was disheartened versus New Zealand that he could not get the team across the line. I told him there was no point thinking what you could have done and told him to keep pushing hard,” said Kohli.

When he asked about the tackle looking like a hopeless situation, the captain said, “We spoke about how to tackle that situation and decided it the best way was a counterattack. No wickets had been lost to good balls; we committed errors and the wicket was better to bat in the second innings. The ball travels very far.”

“We could hit sixes to put pressure on the opposition. It’s one of the best partnerships I have been part of. We have chased 350 before but not from 63/4. We believed in the Test series we could win from any situation. This was the same,” he added.
