Indefatigable spirit and incredible squad depth - the very ethos of Virat Kohli’s India

From Melbourne to Lord’s and from Gabba to The Oval, the Indian Test team has enjoyed the wondrous highs of overseas triumphs within a period of nine months, the grandiosity of which is perhaps unlike anything before. The success story though, goes much beyond the star cast.
