According to news agency AFP, Captain Virat Kohli said India had played the “perfect game”, bowling England out for 134 and 164, but his side could not have levelled the series without the 34-year-old Ravichandran Ashwin.
“The conditions were challenging for both sides, but we showed more application with the bat. We didn’t panic out there looking at the turn and bounce, we showed grit, got into the game and scored 600 runs in the game,” an ecstatic Virat Kohli said in the post-match presentation.
“I’ve played four Test matches here and this is easily the most special Test match,” Chennai-born off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin said after receiving the man-of-the-match award.
“It gave me a hero feeling. In Covid times, a lot of people came without any worries and even though some didn’t wear masks they cheered for us. I dedicate this win to the Chennai crowd.”
