Here is the captain Kohli’s word after the series over.
Virat Kohli: “Absolutely, couldn’t have asked for anything better. The bowlers have responded beautifully every time we’ve been in pressure. Someone has always put up their hand. And that’s the difference, this team is up, we get wickets in bunches, we have that attitude and we do get the results. We made it clear that the bowlers deserve to be in this position and it’s time they express themselves. Don’t hesitate in playing your shots. If you see Pujara hitting a fast bowler back over his head, it is the best example of expressing yourself. This is a proper team series win. It wasn’t just one individual. You can leave Ash aside, he is not to be mentioned in the XI. Jadeja with the bat in the first game, Saha in the second, Rohit with those crucial knocks. We keen his numbers, we discuss his Man of the Series awards after every series. No. 6. No. 7… Credit to him I wish him well.”
