Mumbai, December 12: After winning the forth test and leading in the series by 3-0 against England at Wankhede stadium in Mumbai, Indian skipper Virat Kohli as called the series win over England the "sweetest" of India's recent Test successes.
Indian skipper Kohli in the post-match presentation said, “This series win is probably the sweetest of all we've won in the past 14-15 months. Due to spectators support it was much easier for us to get rid of England team and have a huge win.
Kohli als revealed that he had a few nerves when England had posted 400 having won the toss, but was confident that they could take control of the game and exploit the fact that England had only selected two frontline spinners alongside four quicks - something Alastair Cook admitted had been a mistake.
Kohli further said, "I was pretty focussed on this game." He also said, "We were 2-0 up with a chance to seal the series so we can go to Chennai and express ourselves. The plan was to get stuck in, I got away immediately and sometimes that happens that you get boundaries and the nerves calm down. I wouldn't say I wasn't nervous, I indeed was especially when there was 400 on the board. After we had that bit of a collapse I buckled down again, not getting satisfied, I knew I had to score many more for us to be in a commanding position.
Like to tell you that India on Monday registered a comprehensive win against England in the fourth test played at Wankhede stadium Mumbai. India won 4th Test by an innings and 36 runs. India also won the five-match Test series 3-0. India are now unbeaten in 17 Tests and Kohli has 13 wins as Test skipper.
