“Pretty pleased, a good few weeks. They hit their straps consistently, tough period last night, but shifted the momentum back this morning. Last night was survival, but you’ve got to be in a positive frame of mind and pick and choose your balls. And choose when to put it back on them. I’m just thinking ball, take the simplicity, remain as free as you can. Sometimes you’ve got to take a couple of risks, but when you’re playing well, the judgment of length is key. Shami bowled 18 overs with the rain breaks which isn’t ideal. Would have liked a few more to get close to them, but if we nick a couple out in the morning… we’ll have a chase and we won’t be shutting up shop.”
With Kohli. “We’ve played against each other for a solid ten years now. It’s a bit of craic. We’re fiercely competitive on the field and that’s what it’s about. We’re playing Test cricket and we’re two competitors. It brings the best out of us. Whatever it takes, you want to get your team over the line and that’s part and parcel of the game.”
