India captain Virat Kohli has attributed the batsmen’s failures to score runs on spin-friendly wickets over the last two Tests against England to an overdose of limited overs cricket.
Indian spinners Axar Patel and Ravichandran Ashwin took seven wickets between them as England’s batting failed again on the first day of the fourth and final Test on Thursday.
India, leading 2-1 in the series, struggled to make runs and lost crucial wickets early in the day, including skipper Virat Kohli who failed to score. But Pant put on 113 for the seventh wicket with Sundar to hit back after the England bowlers reduced India to 146 for six at one stage.
Skipper Virat Kohli said India were ‘relieved’ to make the inaugural World Test Championship final and would now focus on that ‘one big game’ against New Zealand in June after seeing off England. India crushed Joe Root’s side inside three days
