NZ vs Ind: Kohli was heard saying ‘I will show them when they come to India’
After losing the opening Test, India lost yet another match and as a result, they got battered at the hands of New Zealand as hosts swept the series by 2-0. Team India set a target of 132. However, the Kiwis chased down the target by seven wickets.
Indian captain Virat Kohli admitted that his team had been outplayed in the series.
As per Indian Express, while standing in the slips, Indian captain was heard saying “Jab India mein yeh log aayenge, tab dikha doonga (Translating the phrase into English: I will show them when they come to India).”
Virat Kohli struggled to get going against New Zealand pacers as he couldn’t even score more than 20 even once in the 4 innings, which is the worst ever series in his Test career.
Indian captain Virat Kohli was totally a different person altogether at the post-match press conference.
“Acceptance is the first word. These kinds of mini phases, or these times as a team, or as an individual, you learn to process them better. It doesn’t mean that they stop coming or stop happening. You understand what you can learn from them, and put your head down and work hard,” he explained.
“We don’t have any shame in admitting we were not good enough; we didn’t play our best cricket, not even close to it,” he added.
“The only communication that has happened, and that needs to happen, is don’t forget what has happened, learn from it, and don’t delve into it too much. So, it is a delicate balance. You can’t ignore it, plus you can’t delve on it every day. You can’t just keep thinking about the same thing otherwise you can’t move forward,” Kohli added in a statement.
