Kohli and the team management copped a lot of flak during the South Africa series at home where some of the pitches were square turners.

 

However, the wins against England at Visakhapatnam in the second Test and here in the third match came on tracks where there weren't much help for the spinners.

 

"It's exactly been 12 months that I was asked a question about we playing on unfair pitches and the question has turned itself. So we don't need to say much about the pitches," said Kohli, making it clear that he has not forgotten what all was said back then.

 

"As I said, we are focussed on good cricket, and we are a team that looks to play good cricket and win sessions. It was a good wicket for cricket. Even for pace bowlers as well as our guys rushed in and put in an effort and got results. It was a wicket if you persisted long enough you will get results that you want," Kohli told PTI.

 

The Indian Test skipper added that they have managed to bring in a belief that Team India can beat any team in the world and they don't need the help of dry square turners to do so.

 

Kohli has been pushing his boys to focus on their skills rather than talking about the pitch which has led to their recent success in the longest format.

 

There was a point in time when Indian teams would allow the opposition tail to wag, but the skipper is happy that now they have turned the tables on the opposition with the kind of effort they are putting in.
