Nagpur: England batsman Jonathan Trott feels that they were rewarded for sticking to their guns when Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Virat Kohli were involved in a rescue act.
"I think they (Dhoni and Kohli) played unbelievably well for five hours. Credit to them. But we stuck to our guns and kept the pressure on them and eventually we got the breakthrough and we pushed on and got four wickets," said Trott referring to the Kohli-Dhoni fifth-wicket partnership of 198 that got the home team back in the match.
"It's changed the match massively. It's a credit to the guys for sticking out for five hours and not getting a wicket and then coming back to the game and evening things out," Trott remarked further.
