Virat Kohli lauds Team India on emphatic series win against England

Following India’s clinical win against England, Kohli took to microblogging site X and congratulated the team for its commendable performance on all four days of the Ranchi Test.

Ace batter Virat Kohli on Monday congratulated Team India for registering a series win against England, winning the Ranchi Test by 5 wickets in testing conditions. Chasing a tricky 192, skipper Rohit Sharma scored an 81-ball 55 while the likes of Shubman Gill (52*) and Dhruv Jurel (39*) stitched an unbeaten 52-run stand to put India through. The victory also marked India’s 17th consecutive series win on home soil since 2013, defeating England twice in this period – in 2016 & 2024.

Following India’s clinical win against England, Kohli took to microblogging site X and congratulated the team for its commendable performance on all four days of the Ranchi Test. The former Indian captain, who became a father for the second time, had already pulled out of the series to be with his family.

“YES!!! Phenomenal series win by our young team. Showed grit, determination and resilience,” Kohli wrote.

Meanwhile, BCCI secretary Jay Shah congratulated the team for the ‘outstanding’ series victory.

“Fantastic victory for Team India in the 4th Test in Ranchi, securing the Test series against England,” he posted.

India consolidated their second spot in the World Test Championship (WTC) standing following the emphatic win in Ranchi. Their point-percentage jumped from 59.52 to 64.58 following the hard-fought win and they further extended the gap with Australia (55%) and Bangladesh (50%), third third and fourth-placed teams, respectively. They have a great chance to further cement their second position if they win the fifth and final Test in Dharamsala, beginning from March 7.

England, on the other hand, are languishing at eighth with 19.44%, just a spot ahead of bottom-placed Sri Lanka, who are yet to open their account.
