Nonetheless, <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/india" target="_blank">Indian</a> skipper <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/Virat-Kohli" target="_blank">Virat Kohli</a> was all praise for Kane Williamson and co.

The ball was coming onto the bat beautifully. But glad the bowlers came out on top: it was like a knock out game for us, and the boys showed their character. Credit to New Zealand. They challenged us in all three games and forced us to play our best in every game. Credit to the skill and character they possess." <strong><a title="Rohit Sharma: Have to be at your best to perform well against New Zealand" href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/rohit-sharma-have-to-be-at-your-best-to-perform-well-against-new-zealand-655946"> <p></p></a></strong> <p></p> <p></p><strong>On the strategies:</strong> I decided that I would let the bowlers do what they want do and that's why I was calm. There was dew too, just glad the boys pulled through. My aim is for the team to win the game and the series, and if I personally do well, then it's an added bonus.
