Home or away, priority is to win series: Virat Kohli

For us high standard is not that we want to be no.1 in Tests. I don’t think any team plays for rankings. Main goal of every team is to play good cricket. This is something we can control. Even if you are no.1, and don’t play matches, other teams can win and make you no.2. This is not in our control. Our motive is to execute our plans one Test match at a time. It’s a long season and we can plan really well. Tests is a format which we will play regularly now. We have the perfect opportunity to challenge ourselves and assess ourselves. These few months will define how we play Test cricket in future. Shami is a very skillful guy, we all know that. He has a lot of ability with the ball, the way he bowls and the way the ball is released. We have seen in India and in the West Indies series his reverse swing skills. Even in Adelaide, he picked two-three wickets in last session and got us back in the game. So he’s always someone you can bank on. He’s someone we always back because he can get us those two-three wickets we need. I’m glad to have him back in the team.
