Former cricketer Maninder Singh has lauded skipper Virat Kohli and head coach Ravi Shastri for India’s success in international cricket. These two have transformed India’s fortunes across formats.
“Virat is a hard taskmaster. The credit has to go to him. But I would give credit to this unit as a whole. Let’s not forget Ravi Shastri. He is doing a commendable job. He is the one who is injecting confidence in the team and youngsters,” Maninder Singh, who played 35 Tests and 59 ODIs for India, said.
Virat Kohli and co. will look to defeat England in the third Test match which starts on August 25 at Headingley.
Earlier, India defeated England by 151 runs in the second Test match of the series at Lord’s. The visitors made a sensational comeback on the fifth day of the match and dismantled England’s batting line-up to go 1-0 up. KL Rahul was given the Man of the Match award for his hundred in the first innings. Apart from him, Mohammed Siraj was India’s star performer. He took eight wickets in the match.
