The southpaw praised his skipper for creation his bat speak after a DRS debate in a Bangalore Test.

“I consider he’s rubbed this whole conditions unequivocally well. He showed how do it and that we’re here for a cricket series. He didn’t chuck it away. He competence have played a integrate of bad shots, like some of a others did, like we did, though he did not play. So, we consider he only done a many of it and done a large score.”

“I consider when a round is reversing it only has to do a little bit to uncover how tough it is out there. But they bowled quite attacking, in terms of stump-to-stump with a reverse balls. we consider they bowled good with a retreat round and got a few wickets with it.”

He refused to speak most about a representation and said: “It looks like delayed during a moment, so it competence mangle adult if they’re a few some-more feet marks, though I’m not too sure. we consider a boys played unequivocally good today. We weren’t certain how a wicket would play entrance in, though it’s played flattering good and hopefully can keep personification good via a Test.”

Asked either India forsaken power after a damage shock to skipper Virat Kohli, he said: “I wouldn’t contend intensity. They still came out flattering hard. But we consider there substantially wasn’t as many difference out there today. They still played flattering tough cricket and done it tough for us.”
