Virat said after the match, ‘First of all I want to congratulate Kane (Williamson) and his team, who showed consistency in this match and brought results in three days. He put pressure on us throughout the Test match and did a great job. There was speed to be scored on the second day of the match and we bowled well in the first innings. It was a different morning when his bowlers executed their plans and didn’t give us a chance to run. We were down 30-40 with good aims.
Virat said, ‘I have no regrets about announcing the XI that will be played one day before the match, because you need an all-rounder on your team, but we have unanimously decided that these are the best 11 players we can get down with. Jamieson (Kyle) has done well in international cricket so far. They bowl well and score some runs off the bat.
