A broader smile will come on face when we conquer an overseas season says India captain Virat Kohli
On asking him why happiness is not there after winning 13 test series, Kohli says “It is an archetypal case of understanding and this is not the end of anything.”

For Kohli, the chief gain is to build a team for future so that trophies can bring to a home.
“This is a proud moment for all of us. Playing good cricket all season, especially in the home season, we conquered all of it. It was very important for a young side to do so and build a team for the future so that we can give such performances consistently.”
“The credit goes to all of them, support staff’s role is not highlighted much but their contribution is nearly 40 percent because they handle the players’ mindset and their skills and working hard with them, giving them good feedback, so these are important things. So this is a team effort, rather this is a squad effort because it involves everyone.”
Kohli praised Ajinkya Rahane’s captaincy and revealed that it was his deputy who was in favour of playing five bowlers. Kuldeep Yadav was picked because of his X-factor.
“I spoke to Jinks (Rahane’s team nickname) before the game and he asked me what I feel. I said, this is your game and you have to be comfortable with the idea of playing either four or five bowlers. He instantly said, five bowlers, because he understands the workload of the guys throughout the whole season.
