Kohli all praises for the team after T20 win
Indian skipper Virat Kohli applauded the team members and the management for the success the team has seen in the last few months. He was speaking at the post match press conference after the first T20 against Australia at Ranchi, where India won by nine wickets (by Duckworth/Lewis Method). Let us have a look at what Kohli said.
"Bhuvi and Bumrah have been brilliant in limited-overs"
Currently one of the best new ball bowling pair in the world, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah also earned Kohli's praise. He said, "Bhuvi and Bumrah have been brilliant in limited-overs lately. You need to be able to execute yorkers and slower balls and you need the skill. But you need to have a good head as well, make batsmen hit the wrong areas."
'Picking up specialists a huge benefit'
Kohli said that the team management's decision to have format specific players has been a huge benefit for the team. He said that having players like Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav in the limited overs team has not only helped the team, but also boosted the confidence of the youngsters. Both Kuldeep and Chahal played an important role in India's series win against Australia.
Duckworth Lewis method a mystery for Kohli?
After being given a target of 48 runs in six overs in the T20 match, Kohli said that they don't understand how Duckworth/Lewis method works. He said, "After getting them down to 118, we thought it would only be 40 or something. 48 was tricky."
