Nottingham: Team India captain Virat Kohli on Wednesday dedicated their win against England in the third Test to the flood victims of Kerala where people are going through a tough time.

In July, Kerala witnessed unusually heavy rains where over hundreds of people lost their lives but lakhs of them were rescued from their homes.

“We as a team want to dedicate this win to the flood victims in Kerala.This is our bit we can do as the Indian cricket team. A tough time there. The victory was much-needed in this series and in context, and to have been clinical in all departments is a victory for the entire dressing room.

"A complete Test for us. There was no panic, and we were outplayed in only one game out of the last 5, and that was Lord's,” the 29-year-old said at the presentation ceremony as he received the Man of the Match award.

 

Bumrah was the star of India’s bowling attack in the second innings, picking up his second five-wicket haul in Tests.

Kohli scored 97 runs in the first innings, but converted that to a well-played 103 runs in the second innings as the visitors stayed alive in the series.
