On the eve of the fourth Test match against England at the Oval, India captain Virat Kohli said that his relationship with head coach Ravi Shastri is based on mutual respect and trust, something that has helped them make this team the one that ‘everyone wants to beat.’
"Our working relationship, and off the field as well, has been built on mutual respect and trust, on a vision that has been shared, which has been focussed in one direction which is to take Indian cricket higher and in a better place than we found it," said Kohli.
"That was always our aim and I think, along with the brilliance of the whole team, the talent that we have been blessed with, we have been able to achieve that.
"We stand as the team that everyone wants to beat anywhere we play in the world and that for us is a matter of immense pride," he added.
The event was marked with a special Rendezvous Series around the UK launch of Shastris debut as an author with Stargazing: The Players In My Life.
During an interaction around his new book, Shastri was asked about the ongoing series, which stands at 1-1 right now, and he promised things are set to get "spicier" in the last two games.
"When you have a captain on the same page, it becomes pretty easy and most of my boys are on a similar page," said Shastri.
Kohli was joined by his teammates at the Taj hotel in London for the launch ceremony of a new exclusive members club The Chambers.’
