Ravindra Jadeja's five-wicket haul gives visitors first innings win in Sri Lanka. With Sri Lanka national cricket team showing spunk in the morning session of Day 4 of the Second Test in Colombo, Ravindra Jadeja stepped onto the plate with some attacking bowling post lunch to give Indian cricket team a series-sealing victory.
Speaking at the post-match press conference, Kohli admitted that the hosts came out with a brilliant batting performance in the second innings, adding that it was good for the team.
"You have to give credit to the batters as well to play like that on a pitch like that. It was high quality batting and you expect that to happen at the Test level. We just hope as a team that we have to embrace this all sessions that we are going to play won't go our way," said Kohli.
"We tried our best whatever we could but they were too good yesterday for sure."
The Indian skipper also heaped praise on his bowlers, saying, "Our bowlers did an outstanding job today off pulling things back and keeping it simple and that's what happens in Test cricket, sessions go away from you and then you have to pull it back to win a Test match."
