Auckland. Virat Kohli, the captain of the Indian cricket team, expressed happiness over the victory in the first T20 against New Zealand and said that he got tremendous support in the field. Kohli said that we just enjoyed the match. Coming here two days ago and playing a game like this, it was fantastic. Kohli said that when we were playing in the stadium, it felt like 80 percent of the audience was supporting us.
The audience encouraged us a lot. The Indian captain said that whenever a target of more than 200 is met, everyone is expected to perform better. We only paid attention to how we should bat to win. KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer batted well which is expected to continue. Other batsmen also played their role properly. Apart from this, our bowlers also did not give an opportunity to play openly to the opposing team. The runs saved by our bowlers also made a difference. We have done well in T20 International in the last one year. Along with this, Virat also praised the Auckland pitch and said that runs have always been scored on this ground. It has proved to be quite good for the batsmen.
