Captains Say after 1st Test –
Since day 3, the ball did quite a bit for the spinners in the final session. But there were no demons as such in the pitch. It looked so because we had lost 4 to 5 wickets, but it was not the case. This situation was an opportunity for us to improve our game. We learnt how to draw a match, said Kohli after the first test match.
I thought it was a fair declaration. Maybe we could have declared a bit earlier, but obviously we did not want to give India a sniff. A braver person might have declared on 240, but on the same pitch we were 180-0, said Cook.
