Give players more consistent opportunities: Sourav Ganguly tells Virat Kohli

Share

On day four of the Test, India resumed their innings at 185/3 and they went on to add 158 runs more to their tally to take the score up to 343 runs and gain a lead of 418 runs. The West Indies captain, who was handed a reprieve after Hanuma Vihari dropped him earlier in the innings, found his off-stump cartwheeling when Bumrah's late outswinger outfoxed the right-hander. Chasing a tough target of 419 runs, the hosts failed to tackle Bumrah and other Indian bowlers and were ultimately bowled out for 100 runs in 26.5 overs in the final session of the fourth day.

Indian vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane was the star performer in both innings.

"We had a lot of runs in the second innings so we were aggressive right from the beginning".

His new-ball partner Ishant Sharma picked up three for 31 while fellow pacer Mohammed Shami claimed two for 13.

"Playing with the Dukes ball in England helped me a lot, too. I dedicate this hundred to the people who backed me, supported me when I was going through a rough patch", Rahane said at the post-match presentation ceremony.

In 2018, Kohli-led India to their first ever series win in Australia as his team defeated the hosts 3-1 to seal a historic win in the Border-Gavaskar series Down Under.

India captain Virat Kohli must give his players more consistent opportunities, said former skipper Sourav Ganguly.

"We players need to take more responsibility. we fell short by quite a few runs", Holder said.

"We chose to bowl cross-seamed deliveries in the first innings".

"That'll be what we're trying to do tomorrow, trying to make sure we're shutting down the scoreboard and making sure we're bowling balls in good areas with that new ball". I feel very good.

The inaugural ICC World Test Championship got underway with the Ashes Test series in Edgbaston as the ICC look to revive the format with a unique tournament where each team will play six Test series. In my time we had the likes of Javagal Srinath, Ashish (Nehra) and Zaheer Khan and its great to see the way Jasprit Bhumrah, Mohammad Shami, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and the likes of Umesh (Yadav) - he has been around for a long time - have performed. "I just have to keep on learning my craft". "I knew how the wicket would play and I was fortunate enough to get those runs for the team", Vihari added.
