On Monday, the Indian skipper, Virat Kohli said that it is impossible to beat all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja in the conditioning sessions. Taking to Instagram, Kohli shared a picture in which he along with Jadeja and the young wicket-keeper batsman, Rishabh Pant is running during the practice. Jadeja can be seen as the front runner followed by Kohli and Pant.
“Love group conditioning sessions. And when Jaddu is in the group, it’s almost impossible to outrun him. @RishabhPant17 @imjadeja,” Kohli captioned the post. On Sunday, Kohli became the first Indian skipper to win seven successive Test matches.
Kohli achieved the feat as India defeated Bangladesh by an innings and 46 runs on day three of the day-night Test at Eden Gardens. After winning the second Test, Kohli surpassed former Indian skipper, MS Dhoni to record the most number of successive Test victories.
Under Dhoni, India had registered six successive wins in the longest format of the game in 2013. India’s maiden Day-night Test also helped in creating another record for India as they became the first team ever to win four consecutive Tests by a margin of an innings. The win over Bangladesh is India’s second victory in which spinners did not take a single wicket in the match and first in the home conditions.
The last time all the 20 wickets were taken by the Indian fast bowlers was in 2018 against South Africa. India won the two-match Test series against Bangladesh 2-0 and have consolidated their position at the top of World Test Championship (WTC) standings with 360 points from seven matches the second-highest on the list is Australia with 116 points.
This was India’s fifth consecutive Test series win and 12th home series win.
