Cricketer Virat Kohli to receive ICC Test Championship mace after Newlands T20I

The second match was a show of respective batting resolves by both sides, especially of their middle-order batsmen. "When there is depth in the middle order, you can afford to take chances", he added. "If you do that, the individual performance is always looked after".

However, Shastri faced opposition from Kohli and men, who unanimously opposed the idea of hosting day-night Test in the near future when consulted by the former, according to a Team India insider, as reported by DNA.

"We have spoken about it in the team meeting as well". We didn't really have problems with the conditions, it was a constant drizzle, was fine to play.

"If you see the Indian batting order, the No. 1, 2, 3 - they all are batting really well", he said. When you come to Nos 4, 5 and 6, MS is there and Manish is also doing a good job.

"I'd say we are still 80% (as a Test unit)". Winning games is more important than being which format I am playing or not. JP Duminy took the responsibility and Heinrich Klaasen was very solid in what he was trying to do. "Is that a good enough reason to remain isolated in world cricket?", a BCCI official said, as quoted by the report.

Talking about the decider, Raina said India are determined to finish the long tour on a positive note.

"All the games are very important".


Mumbai: Team India captain Virat Kohlli has had a busy start to 2018 so far.

We did well in Tests and won the ODI series. The dressing room atmosphere is such that everyone is enjoying their success.

With every passing game building up and leading into the World Cup of 2019, India's golden run couldn't have come at a better time. The way I go back and across to open myself up and set myself for the shots. "Our captain Virat Kohli is such that he doesn't take anything for granted and that will be our approach in the final". He never takes things easy.

Virat Kohli has also played all the matches in South Africa but his case will be slightly different from others as a decision on resting him will depend on the skipper himself. But they bowled well in the last game.

"They have done well in the last game and batted really well". Sometimes you need to credit the opposition as well.

"When Kuldeep and Chahal were bowling (in the One-Day Internationals), they were not able to rotate the strike". Klassen was great too, but the dew made a lot of difference. "We are looking forward to tours to England and Australia". Raina though didn't look much bothered by this.
