Addressing the media during a virtual press conference ahead of the fourth Test match, Kohli slammed the pitch critics saying there is “too much noise about spinning tracks”. When asked the steps to ensure that the Test match last more than two-three days, the right-handed batsman replied: “Do you play the game to win it or to make sure it goes to five days and there is entertainment?”
Kohli also said that the Indian team has never cribbed out the surfaces while playing overseas and that’s why they have been successful.
“The reason behind our success as a team is that we haven’t cribbed about any surface we have played on. We have always tried to improve,” he added.
India’s eyes are firmly set on making to the final of the World Test Championship and for that they need to either win or draw the last Test against England. The visitors, who were outclassed completely in the last two matches, would be looking to end the series with a win and salvage some pride.
