After recording a series of elite outings in the ongoing ICC World Test Championship, India’s winning run was finally halted by the prowess of Kiwis. The batting powerhouse failed to make an impact as they got all out for less than 200 runs in both the innings of the Wellington Test. As a result, they were handed their first defeat of the global red-ball competition along with some criticism.
However, Indian skipper Virat Kohli has brushed aside all the negative views as he urged people not to make a mountain out of a single defeat. The 31-year old clearly admitted that New Zealand performed better than his unit in all departments of the game. Moreover, he vowed to come harder in the Christchurch Test.
“We know that we didn’t do well, but if people want to make a big deal or mountain out of it, we can’t help it as we don’t think like that. It’s not the end of the world. We were outperformed and the acceptance of the defeat defines the character of a side,” said by Virat Kohli while sharing his views about the loss against Kiwis.
