Not looking to survive in game, we are here to win: Virat Kohli after Oval win

India beat England by 157 runs in the fourth test at The Oval on Monday to go 2-1 up in the five-match series.

Pursuing 368 for triumph, England were all out for 210 with Haseeb Hameed (63) and Rory Burns (50) hitting half-hundreds of years. For India, Umesh Yadav guaranteed 3/60, while spinner Ravindra Jadeja and seamers Jasprit Bumrah and Shardul Thakur took two wickets each.

The match was viably over when Shardul Thakur excused England commander Joe Root for 36 with a harmless conveyance which the in-structure batsman delayed to his stumps. Jadeja continued bowling into the harsh to inconvenience the batsmen, asserting the wickets of Hameed and England bad habit commander Moeen Ali.

Applauding the personality of the current Indian group, captain Virat Kohli said, “Indeed, I think the best thing about both the games has been the person the group has shown. We are not hoping to make due in this game, we are here to win.””Really glad for the person the group has shown. I said at Lord’s also, I am glad for the person among the best three bowling exhibitions I have seen as India chief. It’s very comparative with what you call a level. The conditions were hot and we knew were in with a chance when Jadeja was bowling into the harsh. The bowlers were acceptable with the converse swing today. We accepted we could get every one of the 10 wickets, we had the conviction.”

“When the ball began switching, Bumrah said give me the ball. He bowled that spell and swung the game in support of ourselves with those two immense wickets. I think you pointed his exhibition. Rohit’s innings was incredible. What Shardul has done in this game sticks out. His two fifties emptied the resistance. I think he batted well in the two innings. We never go towards investigation, measurements and numbers. We know what we need to zero in on and we accept an aggregate choice collectively.”

Player of the Match Rohit Sharma, communicated fulfillment over his thump and said, “I needed to be on the field however much I could. That hundred was exceptional. We know how significant was the subsequent innings. Virat just referenced the work from the batsmen, and as a unit it was truly significant. It’s my first abroad hundred. Truly happy that I could get the group into a significant position. The three-figure mark wasn’t to me, we knew the tension on the batting unit so we held our heads down and batted the situation.”Meanwhile, England commander Joe Root said, “It’s disappointing, thought we’ll get something from the game today, we had a chance of dominating a Test game. The initial association was remarkable, credit to India, they got the ball to invert I thought Bumrah’s spell was the genuine defining moment of the game.”
