WTC Final: India captain Virat Kohli in a post-match press conference said,” I am not in absolute agreement of deciding the best Test side in the world over the course of one game. If it is a Test series, it has to be a test of character over three Tests – which team has the ability to come back in the series or totally blow away the other team. It can’t just be pressure applied over two days of good cricket and then suddenly you are not a good Test side anymore. I don’t believe in it.”
