Sri Lanka's cricket board has complained to the sport's governing body about the poor air quality its players have been compelled to endure in the Indian capital New Delhi. We'll prepare those few players for the task. "There are still some areas that I still want to improve".
On Wednesday, India's top order batsman Cheteshwar Pujara spoke in a similar tone pointing out the number of players in the team, who had earlier played in South Africa.
Kohli also scored his best in Test Cricket with 243 surpassing his previous best 235. The match which ended in a draw due to final day resistance shown by the visitors, was much criticised after Sri Lankan players came on to the field wearing face masks. "We are looking forward to the World Cup now and the three-week camp ahead of that starts in Bengaluru tomorrow", Dravid spoke on cricket at U-19 level.
"We are having a chat about it (slip catchers), we will assign few players, will have players standing at the slips", the Saurashtra batsman told reporters at the post-match press conference here.
All-rounder Angelo Mathews has moved up seven places to 23rd position after scoring 111 in the first innings while Dhananjaya de Silva's match-saving 119 in the second innings has lifted him nine places to 47th position.
"The intensity that he brings on the field to inspire his teammates is what stands out for me", said Dravid when asked what separates Kohli from the others.
"They played well, firstly, credit to them".
2818- Runs for Kohli across all formats in global cricket in 2017 - the third-highest tally ever recorded in a calendar year.
"2017 has been a fantastic year for me", he said. "We will discuss when we reach South Africa but we are already talking about that", Pujara said. Numerous players in this team were on the 2013 tour. It will definitely help us.
I don't think that will last long the way @imVkohli is batting. "The thing is, in Sri Lanka we are not used that, so that's why we struggled (on) the first two days", said Sri Lankan captain Dinesh Chandimal.
Pujara admitted India were aware that a revolving cordon can be a problem, and were looking to zero in on the candidates before starting the South Africa series. Despite some brilliant innings, Kohli failed to equal or surpass former Sri Lankan wicketkeeper-batsman Kumara Sangakkara's record of most worldwide runs in a calendar year.
610- Runs scored by Virat Kohli in this Test series, the most by an Indian in a three-match Test series and the fourth-highest overall. "They did not give us any chances to get into the game", he said.
