Following the win, Kohli praised the team for delivering as a collective unit.

“To come back with a win again, it’s a great feeling and a clinical performance. You want individuals to step up. The first Test was good, and it was a clinical performance here,” Kohli said at the post-match presentation.

He also reckoned the upcoming tour of South Africa as a tough challenge. “South Africa is a tough challenge and a win that we want to achieve as a team. Hopefully, we can play in South Africa the way we know we can play, and win the series,” Kohli said after the win.
