By Khurram Habib Ahmedabad, March 6 : Facing criticism for his devil-may-care attitude and not putting a heavy price on his wicket in Australia series and in the first Test against England in Chennai, Rohit Sharma’s knock of 161 in the second Test emerged as the defining moment.
India skipper Virat Kohli reserved ultimate praise for the knock that pushed the momentum in India’s favour. The hosts never looked back from there.
“Rohit’s knock in second Test was the most defining moment in us coming back in the series. Getting 160 on that pitch was as good as getting 250 on any good batting wicket and it got us into the contest. That gave us the momentum we needed. Throughout the series, he got important knocks and partnerships which is unnoticed when you don’t get those three figures,” Kohli said after the match.
Kohli said the India’s comeback in the second Test from where they won the series 3-1 made him most happy.
“I think the comeback [in the second Test] pleased me the most. The first game was a bit of an aberration the way we played as a team. England outplayed us. The toss played very crucial role and I don’t think the bowlers were in the contest at all. Next game, we came back. We bowled and fielded in the second innings with intent.” Kohli said the youngsters’ performances have been very good and the bench strength has been good.
