    Virat Kohli, PoTM

    I was going to ask you to keep the interview short, I’m very tired. I’m always prepared to help the team in different ways. Today, KL got a great start and my job was just to rotate strike. I take a lot of pride on trying to push for easy runs, pushing for a double is as easy as they come. Because I crossed the 100, there was a bit of respect for that shot. I don’t play that and I looked very bad playing it. Me and KL are both conventional cricketers, we don’t try fancy stuff but we can get a lot of purchase through good cricket shots. Great partnership and good signs for Indian cricket. I was pushing for those runs and happy for it, but I was thinking I need to play at 3 pm tomorrow. Luckily, we are Test players so I know how to come back and play the next day. It was really humid out there, I’m 35 in November so I need to be taking care of that recovery as well. A big shout out to the groundsmen from my side, I think they did a fabulous job.

  • September 11, 2023 23:15
    Rohit Sharma

    We just wanted to get out on the park, to get some game time. Lot of guys haven’t had that. That could only happen thanks to a great effort from the groundsmen. On behalf of the entire team, we would like to thank them. (On batting) Fantastic performance, right from yesterday! When we started, we knew the wicket was good and we had to adjust with the rain, the two experienced guys we knew they’d take time to get their eye in and then we can get going. ( Bumrah) Looked good, he swung it both ways and he’s worked really hard for the last 8-10 months. Bumrah is only 27 (29), for him to miss games isn’t ideal but the way he bowled showed what he is all about. Looking at how we batted, there were lots of positives with the openers and then Virat and KL. Virat’s innings was brilliantly paced. And then KL, last minute to get back from injury and play 5 minutes before the toss, we told him to get ready. Shows the mindset of the player.

  • September 11, 2023 23:11
    Babar Azam

    Weather was not in our hands but we tried our best. We were not up to the mark with our batting and bowling. They (Indian openers) had plans for our bowlers and started well and that was followed up by Virat and Rahul. Jasprit and Siraj bowled well in the first 10 overs and swung the ball both ways, but our batting was not up to the mark.

  • September 11, 2023 23:03
    Kuldeep Yadav reflects on his performance

    Better rhythm from last one year. Enjoying it, with the consistency. It’s good to pick five wickets. Whenever I got four wickets, I never considered picking the fifth one. Because at the moment all I am thinking about is bowling a good length. Whenever you get a five-for, it is really amazing. (Plan) I have a plan ready against the top sides. You have to be prepared. I’ve played against them in 2019, I know most of the guys, how they play spin. Just focusing on my variation. I’m working on my length and focused on bowling wicket to wicket. Whenever I am playing against a good spin side, they try to sweep and reverse sweep, that’s when you’re in with a chance to take wickets.”

    Gentle tossed-up delivery from Iftikhar and Rahul shuffles across and pumps the ball behind square for SIX with a fine sweep. Fuller ball outside the off-stump and Rahul cuts the ball nimbly through backward point for FOUR. Impressive footwork on display from KL.. Slower ball on length and Rahul checks the ball towards mid-on.

    IND 175/2 in 30 overs

    Shaheen returns. Malleable wrists are on display from Kohli as he opens the bat to tap a length ball shaping across to point for a single. Majestic from KL! Fraction wide on the fuller side and Rahul smears the ball past point with disdain for FOUR. Just a flawless square cut there from the India No. 4. A couple of singles to follow. Rahul is in his element here. He testifies it with another push through cover for which he will only gain a single and the strike.

    IND 167/2 in 29 overs

    A forced bowling inclusion comes in with Iftikhar Ahmed. A sedate first over as Rahul and Kohli nudge the gaps for ones and twos. Four from it.

    IND 163/2 in 28 overs

    Straight delivery on length and Rahul keeps his blade low to get an inside-edge off Naseem towards mid-wicket - a quick single. There’s the edge but there’s no guardian in the cordon and Kohli survives! Late movement off the short-of-good length for Naseem and Kohli pushes hard at it. The ball bites the outside-edge and trickles past the keeper for FOUR. Width on offer and Kohli pushes through extra cover for two runs. LOUD APPEAL! Rizwan and Naseem are excited as the ball slides down leg brushing Kohli’s thigh to the keeper. Pakistan reviews! Is there a nick on that one? Poor review in hindsight from Pakistan as there’s clear daylight between bat and ball on the UltraEdge.

    IND 155/2 in 27 overs

    Faheem Ashraf replaces Shadab. Length ball, angling in and Kohli dabs the ball past the keeper for a single. Easy pickings for the batters as Faheem continues to push deliveries on a harmless length. He corrects his length with a tighter line. Faheem cramps up Rahul who blocks the deliveries out from the wickets. Three from the over.

    IND 152/2 in 26 overs

    Naseem Shah into the attack. A sharp, probing delivery skids off the deck to Rahul who swipes it down off his pads. BEATEN by a pearler! Late movement for Naseem after the ball seemingly shapes in to Rahul. He gets off strike with a single. Another gentle outswinger and the ball skims past Kohli’s blade. He taps the next ball through cover for a single and retains strike.

  • September 11, 2023 16:41
    IND 150/2 in 25 overs

    Shadab starts with a slider and Rahul gets an inside-edge towards short mid-wicket. Straighter this time and Rahul taps the ball on the full back to the bowler. Rahul drives the ball down the ground for a single. Kohli and Rahul pick the gaps for a couple of more runs. 150 up for India in 25 overs.

    Action Restarts!

    KL Rahul and Virat Kohli are back at the crease. Shadab Khan is back to resume his over.

    No Haris Rauf with the ball for Pakistan!

    Huge blow for Pakistan as Haris Rauf will not be bowling any further in this match. “Haris Rauf will not be bowling any further in the Asia Cup Super 4 match against India as a precautionary measure. He felt a little discomfort in his right flank during the match yesterday,” according to PCB.

    Morne Morkel: Rauf started feeling his oblique muscle. With the World Cup round the corner, it is precautionary and we’ll have to use the other boys to fill the overs. About yesterday’s bowling, I felt that if we aren’t on the money from the get-go, and that’s why we were hit for a few runs.
