Virat Kohli, the Indian skipper after the 4-1 series loss has said that the series had revived Test cricket.
India lost the last test at Oval by 118-runs, a match that will be forever remembered as the farewell of England’s most-capped Test player and run scorer Alastair Cook.
Alastair Cook’s century in the 2nd inning was the highlight but India made sure the series did not end in anti-climax, who was chasing 464 for victory.
KL Rahul’s superb 149 and an amazing 114 by 20-year- Rishabh Pant, meant from a hopeless position of two for three, India began to dream of a world-record run chase but eventually failed to chase.
Post-match the Indian skipper Virat Kohli said “We didn’t speak about the result, we just wanted to go out and see what happened, waiting and watching, things can change very quickly. That’s the beauty of this format. When both teams are going for wins, you can have a result that looks like that (4-1), they don’t go for draws.”
