Team India skipper Virat Kohli and head coach Ravi Shastri held a press conference in Mumbai on Wednesday before the Indian team left for England. India must play New Zealand on the tour of England in the final of the World Test Championship. After that the Indian team will play a five-match Test series against England.
“There is no pressure on me for the final of the World Test Championships,” Kohli told a press conference ahead of the India tour of England. I want to take Indian cricket forward. There was no pressure on me before and still no pressure on me. Asked whether New Zealand would benefit from the conditions in England, Virat Kohli said how strong New Zealand’s conditions were for us. If you want us to think New Zealand will benefit before boarding the plane, it’s not. We think we are on an equal footing.
Virat Kohli said the long gap between the WTC final and the England Test is a great opportunity to think and relax. We put forward a five-Test series. This gives us time to reassess and before such a major series is needed. Kohli said he would like to continue to win. We worked hard to get here. It’s like football, where you win the Champions League, you don’t stop, you want to win.
