BENGALURU: Indian skipper Virat Kohli on Tuesday called the second Test win over Australia as the best of his captaincy career, comparing his team to a snake which can sting from any direction.
“Yes, this is the best one. I don’t want to say too much as the game panned out as it did. It was quite an emotional game for us,” Kohli said after the 75-run win which helped the Indians draw level in the four-match series.
“Everyone got along well. Talking about the head of the snake, the head did pretty well. It is not just about one individual here. This snake can sting from any direction. Some people need to keep that in mind,” he added, taking a veiled dig at Nathan Lyon’s comment about Kohli being the prized wicket.
Kohli lavished praise on the team’s bowlers for ensuring that Australia’s first innings lead was not too big.
