Kohli also said the current Indian fast bowlers are a dream combination for any captain, adding that when Jasprit Bumrah returns from injury “we’ll have one hell of a bowling attack to counter”.

Virat was seen motivating young Mayank Agarwal from the dressing room during his dominating innings of 243 runs.

Explaining his gesture, Kohli said, “The mindset is simple when you see a young guy coming in to bat, in Tests I know how much time it took me to get those big hundreds, so I know the importance of getting big runs. It’s important as a senior batter to let them know to keep going. I want them to not make the mistakes I made as youngsters to make them world-class cricketers.”

Kohli also shared his views on the excitement of the day-night Test and the change in the game with the pink ball. He also went on to praise the crow in Indore as well.

Describing the same, Virat said, “The pink-ball Test is going to be exciting, will be a challenge for the batters. With the older ball, it doesn’t swing that much so the bowlers will have a challenge. We’re just happy to be among the first to play pink-ball cricket for India. The crowd has been brilliant, these guys give us the extra motivation to push extra when we’re tired.”

India is now leading a 1-0 lead in the two-match Test series. They will next host Bangladesh for the day-night Test at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata starting from November 22.
