You had to see how Kuldeep and the other bowlers performed together.It is a big thing to defend 217 runs on this wicket. The circumstances were also not that easy. I know the wicket was helping the spin bowlers, but in the first innings the bowlers were getting more help.”

This victory against him will give confidence to the team. He said “Defending 217 runs against Sri Lanka, they are a really good team playing against spin.
