"We wanted to win but it ended in a draw", he said.

"We were expecting this wicket to deteriorate a bit more especially on Day 4 and 5".

Perhaps it is time appropriate for the governing body of cricket the ICC to take remedial action and the organizers and adjudicators of games such as the umpires to be given strict instructions towards ensuring the safety of players relative to health and making timely decisions to avoid incapacitating them which could even result in permanent health hazards as seemed to be the case in this instance while bearing in mind that it is not only risky pitches and possible threats from sources bent on disrupting the game that come into play during a game.

"Theres nothing called set patterns these days, if you can believe in yourself, you can achieve anything in any format", said Kohli, who was adjudged Man of the Match as well as the Man of the Series for scoring 610 runs with three hundreds, including two double tons. South Africa also have not played a pink-ball Test and the one against Zimbabwe will be their first. We will prepare a few players who will be standing at the slips. "We have enough experience of being in South Africa".

On this edition of Global Journalist, we take an in-depth look at India's pollution crisis. The top of the list there was Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.It has been a brilliant year for the Indian, where he has scored more than 1,000 runs in Tests, and 1,460 runs in ODIs. "But we have already started talking about it", the 29-year old explained. Many of our players were there in 2013.

The condition was so bad that fast bowlers from both sides were seen vomiting. "Also, our fast bowling unit is much better now and I think fast bowlers will do the damage", Pujara stated confidently. "This period, I will use to become a good ODI player", said the skipper.

"May be those performances were at home but they were all very good". Ajinkya is going through the same thing. He knows, he is a hard worker, in his batting, in his fielding, in his fitness ... "I always tell my under-19 boys that they should watch Kohli bat and try to match his level of consistency", Dravid said during a promotional here on Thursday.

Resuming the final day on a precarious 31-3, Sri Lanka lost Angelo Mathews early in the morning session but de Silva and Dinesh Chandimal resisted India for two hours as the smog-hit Test finally saw a mostly sunny day.

Kohli's next Test assignment will be when India tour South Africa in January for three matches, where he should have a chance to climb to the top spot for the first time ever in his career.
