India skipper Virat Kohli on Tuesday insisted his team didn’t come underprepared for the Test series against South Africa, contradicting coach Ravi Shastri’s views that the side should have spent more time preparing.
Shastri had said that Team India should arrive ten days early on overseas tours in order to prepare better after the visitors lost the opening two Tests by 72 runs and 135 runs respectively at Cape Town and Centurion.
“I personally don’t feel that we didn’t feel prepared starting this series. I won’t sit here and point that out after losing a Test series. We had a week to prepare ourselves, five days because one day we were travelling,” Kohli said ahead of the third Test starting Wednesday.
