India vs England: Virat Kohli Says The Series Has Been A Great Advertisement For Test Cricket

England beat India by 118 runs in their final Test at the Oval to secure the Test Series of five games by 4-1. Despite the challenging centuries of KL Rahul (149) and Rishabh Pant (114), the English bowlers remained calm and discarded the Indian tail to give a perfect farewell gift to their former captain Alastair Cook. Virat Kohli, who was considered the player of the Indian series, in the post-match presentation said that this series was competitive in nature and has been a great publicity for the test cricket.

"I think we should give the two youngsters a lot of credit, it's possible that the kind of cricket we played did not show up on the scoreboard." But both teams know that this series has been competitive. This has been a great announcement for Cricket Test. The basic idea was to go out and play the cricket that we are supposed to do, "said Kohli.

"England is a professional team and we realized that as the game changed in two or three overs, Pant showed a lot of determination and character, we have character in the team and we only need some experience when you get into an area when "I'm not thinking about the result, things go their way. I'm delighted by the two guys and talks about the future of India. We do not take advantage of the opportunities, "Kohli added.

"England also does not bet on draws and they played the intrepid cricket, and so do I. That's why you will not see draws in this type of Series." We can take a lot of this but apply ourselves better the next time, "commented the Indian captain.

Kohli praised Sam Curran, 20, who was declared a player in the England series.

"There's a reason why we voted for Sam to be the Man of the series, it takes character to get in and play like that, he put England ahead in the 1st and 4th Test matches, there should be exciting throws in the whole result. The fans will come to see if both teams play for a win, "said Kohli.

Alastair Cook, England's most titled player and record-setting scorer who scored his 161st and final game with a victory, went on to a standing ovation and Kohli wished him the best.

"Just one word for Cook, I wish you (Alastair Cook), I want to congratulate you for what you have done and I wish you the best in your future endeavors," said Kohli.
