Port of Spain: Stand-in captain Virat Kohli termed Indian team's comeback after back-to-back defeat as a "commendable" one as it showed the character of the team which enabled them to reach the final of the tournament in such convincing fashion.
"To bounce back like this and finish top of the table is a commendable effort. I am very proud of the team," a beaming Kohli said at the post-match presentation ceremony.
Kohli is happy that the team showed a lot of character in making such a strong comeback in the tournament.
"We have shown a lot of character. When three good teams are playing in the tournament, anything can happen. We were never bothered about the rain delays. Our performance showed what happens when one executes their plans properly."
The young captain said that when he was involved in a 49-run partnership with Rohit Sharma, he didn't want to take any undue risks.
"When I and Rohit were playing, we just wanted to play ourselves in. It paid in the end, because we had wickets in hand, and it worked in the D/L calculations. Then the bowlers responded beautifully. Full credit to them."
