Virat Kohli on Team India’s Triumph

The win gave the visitors a 1-0 lead in the five-match series, which was deserving to say the least,
especially since they were robbed of a certain victory due to rain in the series opener at Trent Bridge,
Nottingham. KL Rahul was adjudged as player of the match for his patient first-innings century on
testing conditions on Day 1 at Lord’s.

Virat Kohli hailed the team’s performance that resulted in the iconic win. He said during the post-match

“Super proud of the whole team, the way we stuck to our plans, being put in our performance with
the bat was outstanding. Pitch didn’t offer much on first three days. But the way we played in the
second innings, under pressure, from Jasprit and Shami was outstanding. We thought with 60 overs to go
we could have a crack, and they were outstanding. A bit of tension on the field really motivated us to
finish the game.”
