Virat Kohli Said He Needs To Make A Perfectly Balanced Team Before 2019 World Cup

India is known as the hub of cricket. Even though it has originated in England, it is played more in India. A cricket match is like a festival in India. Thousands of people gather in the stadium to cheer for the team. Even for IPL, hundreds of fans gather in the stadium to cheer for their favourite team and enjoys viewership of millions through digital platforms. In our country, records of other cricket teams are also celebrated and appreciated equally.

After India's defeat in the last match, Virat said that he will be finding the right combination in the remaining ODI matches that they play before the 2019 World Cup. "We've got to get our act right and get the balance of the side and make sure we are not over-reliant on one skill," he said while speaking in the post-match presentation ceremony. India also lost the series 2-1, which was the first time they had lost a bilateral ODI series since January 2016 and also Virat Kohli's first ODI series loss as captain.

Kohli dismissed the effect that change had on India's chances in Leeds. "We thought Dinesh did well, but he couldn't convert his start, so I don’t regret the batting order changes. Shardul was meant to get some exposure, and Bhuvi needed to make a comeback. When the changes don’t come off, they look unnecessary so it must be taken in our stride," he said.

India and England have now both won three matches in total on this tour with India winning the T20I series 2-1 and England winning the ODI series by the same ratio. The two teams will now play a five-match Test series. "The Test squad is pretty settled, and it's going to be a lengthy series. We want to play tough cricket and we know the English side will provide us with that," he said.

Virat also thanked the Indian fans earlier for the response on the ground.
