Virat Kohli went past MS Dhoni to become the only captain with 10 innings wins under his name for the country.
Written by Says Ajay Pal Singh. Table-topping India have now won all six Tests since the World Test Championship kicked in, including a 3-0 whitewash against South Africa last month to record their 11th consecutive test series victory at home. Batting coach Vikram Rathour also supported Bharat Arun’s claims and said that the team culture has been really good.
“I think it’s the team culture. It’s not about batting or bowling. I think this team wants to be the No.1 in the world,” Rathour said in the post-match press conference. In another fabulous fast bowling performance without injured pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah, the Indian troika of Ishant Sharma, Umesh Yadav and Mohammed Shami collected 14 wickets in an innings and 130 runs victory over Bangladesh in the first Test.
“At present, we are the No. 1 team in the world. Getting there is difficult and staying there is even more difficult. To stay there over a period of 3 years, you have to stay constantly hungry.” India’s most successful bowling coach Arun then spoke about each of the three pacers.
On Ishant coming round the wicket to left-hander (Shadman Islam dismissal), Arun said: “Actually started working on that variation from yesterday. So if you look at the way he signalled after he got the wicket, he was very happy that he could do that.

It’s Ishant’s experience that has made him the bowler that he is. “Ishant is probably the most experienced bowler we have. He has played over 90 Test matches ,the bowling coach said.

When asked about Umesh, the bowling coach lavished praise on the “character” that he has shown despite being in and out of the side due to specific team combinations.”Umesh showed a lot of character in coming back. But then that’s also an embarrassment of riches (with Bumrah on his way to recovery),” the former India bowler said.
“You have five fast bowlers (Buvneshwar Kumar) who are ready to play for the country. And over a period of time if you can manage the workloads well, we can ensure that each one is nice and fresh for every game that we play.”(With Agency Inputs ).
