Following a resounding victory over South Africa, India skipper Virat Kohli praised his team for coming out with a highly professional performance in their World Cup opener at the Ageas Bowl.
Playing their first match in the ongoing World Cup, India on Wednesday came out with a brilliant bowling performance as they restricted the Proteas to 227 and then chased down the target with six wickets in hand.
After the match, Kohli admitted the conditions were challenging throughout the course of the game and that’s when his boys stood up to the competition.
“The wait was very long and then you get a game like this where it was challenging throughout. From our point of view it was important to start on the right note,” said Kohli at the post-match presentation ceremony.
