Hyderabad, February 14: Indian Captain Virat Kohli glorified his team for their dauntless efforts in test Match with Bangladesh. Kohli said, honestly it is the players that make you the captain that you become. To be very honest, anyone knows how to set fields on the ground, it's just that you have to make sure that you take up the responsibility of keeping the energy of the team up.
"I look to push myself, throw myself around in the field so that other guys know that they also have to push for a wicket. The bowlers know what they need to do but the fielders within the ring need to support the bowlers. I need to do that first, for the guys to show that energy," Kohli said.
Talking about his 19-match unbeaten streak as a captain, Kohli said, "I don't think it's because of me. We are playing as a team and that's been the difference in this team, if you see, you can say probably 2016, I scored a lot of runs but before that in 2015 as well, we won a lot of matches. I didn't score many runs but the other guys stepped up and scored runs.
Significantly, India defeated Bangladesh by 208 runs in the one-off Test which lasted five days, beating expectations of an early finish owing to the visitors' minnow status. The win also took India's unbeaten streak to 19 Tests.
