“You can’t control what’s over your head. The races on this site have always worked well on this site. I am in good shape and well. I am coming for Vihari.

It was a difficult decision to choose between the two. We are expected to win every test we play overseas and this fourth round of South Africa chase was special for them. It’s a great stadium and we are very excited. Virat Kohli said in the draw.
