IND vs SA: I’m enjoying myself – Virat Kohli after his knock against South Africa 

Virat Kohli, who won the Man of the Match Award, talked about his innings. He said that he was enjoying himself and also talked about the conditions. Speaking during the post-match presentation, he explained: 

“It was a big game, probably playing the toughest team in the tournament. There was a motivation to do well. Because it happened on my birthday, it became special and the people made it more special for me. I did wake up with that excitement that today is not just another game. People from the outside look at the game in a bit of a different way. When the openers start well, it feels it is a belter and everyone has to play that way. 

“But as the ball got older, the conditions slowed down drastically. The message was clear, keep batting around me. I was happy from that perspective. Once we got more than 315, we knew that we were above par. I’m enjoying myself, playing cricket all over again, that is more important to me than phases. I’m just happy that God has blessed me with that enjoyment. I’m just happy that I’m being able to do what I have done over all these years.” 

Virat Kohli will be next seen in action when India will take on Netherlands on Sunday (12th November).
