Indian Captain Virat Kohli took to twitter to talk about the exciting feeling that he experiences while stepping on the ground.
Rubbishing the claims of the English home advantage, India steamrolled over England in the 1st T20I to beat them by a 8-wicket margin with ten balls remaining. Kohli hit the winning runs and assisted an unbeaten KL Rahul (101*) to take the team over the line.
Kuldep Yadav and KL Rahul were the star performers for India. While Kuldeep picked up a sublime fifer, Rahul raced to a classic 101 to pummel India to a win.
Virat was delighted at the post-match presentation and said, “Just looking at all the three skill sets and how convincing we were gives me a lot of pleasure. We are shuffling around keeping the World Cup in mind and that’s why KL went in at three and I went in at four.
“We want our cricketers to be fearless and enjoy themselves just. We don’t want that mindset to change and want to provide a cushion behind them to go after. It may not work out well every time but we need to stick to it.”
Recently, Kohli posted a tweet with the image of the time when the team was stepping out on the Old Trafford stadium in Manchester to field. The skipped captioned the image, “The most exciting feeling is walking out with your team mates to represent your country. The passion of fans creates a kind of energy that can’t be explained.”
