India vs Namibia T20 Live Score: Virat Kohli, the winning toss, speaks
Relief firstly (on leaving T20I captaincy). It's been a honor but things need to be kept at the right perspective. I felt this was the right time to manage my workload. It's been six or seven years of heavy workload and there is a lot of pressure. The guys have been fantastic, I know we haven't got the results here but we have played some really good cricket. The guys have really made my work easier. The way we played the last three games, it's a game of margins - T20 cricket these days. Two overs of attacking cricket at the top is what we were missing in the first two games. As I said, we weren't brave enough in those games and in the group we were in, it was tough. A big thank you to all those guys (Ravi Shastri and his support staff). They have done a great job over the years, creating such a wonderful environment for the players. People loved to get back to the atmosphere. They have done a really great job. That (his aggression) is never going to change. The day it does, I'll stop playing cricket. Even before I became captain, I have always loved to contribute in some way or the other.

India vs Namibia Live Updates: Gerhard Erasmus, the losing captain, speaks
"We haven't quite able to really soak in (the experience) due to the quick turnaround between games. Only once we get back home, we'll be able to realise that we played awesome levels of cricket and were to compete against some strong teams. Quite a few highlight performances individually to take home as positives, and also as a team. Good positives and hopefully we can work to get better. Hopefully we have inspired a few people with our performances to take up the sport."
Nov 08, 2021 10:37 PM IST
IND vs NAM: Not every tale has a dream end
Kohli and Shastri achieved so much in the last 4 years. Winning twice in Australia, more-or-less winning the Test series in England, and reaching the final of WTC 2021, semifinal of the 2019 WC. The team soared high with them but we can't have everything in life. They may regret not having won a single ICC trophy but they have bowed out knowing impeccable job they have done for Indian cricket.
Nov 08, 2021 10:34 PM IST
India vs Namibia: Ravindra Jadeja, the player of the match, speaks
"As a bowler I enjoyed the game, the ball was dry and that is always good for a spinner. Some turned and some didn't so the batsman had to keep guessing. I've been playing with Ashwin for 10 years, he's played well in the IPL with the white ball, and he's brought that here. Virat has been a wonderful captain, and I've played with him for 10-12 years. He looks positive and aggressive and that's what you want. Bharat Arun, Mr. Sridhar, and Shastri bhai were really good to support us, and whoever comes next, we'll look to continue the momentum."
Nov 08, 2021 10:32 PM IST
A GREAT INNINGS COMES TO AN END
Ravi Shastri and Virat Kohli share a huge hug to mark the end of a very successful partnership. Indian cricket will always appreciate the tenure of Ravi Shastri, Bharat Arun, and R Sridhar.

IND vs NAM Live Updates: Ashwin speaks during the break
The surface had decent bounce and there's a strong cross breeze. Whatever happens for the spinner happens in the air, with little cross breeze, it is very helpful. Going along with the variations, change of pace is very important to get the dot balls. Whenever the seam position was right and whenever you slowed it down, it just held in the wicket a touch. It's one of those surface where you always want to bowl first. I don't know how it's going to be with the dew but today's surface was better than what we played on last time. Dew is a very big factor and how much ever you practice with the dew, the ball is not going to come back to proper condition. The pitch also tends to skid on more with a bit of dew on it. Those are external factors you can't control, but when you do have cross breeze like this and when you can bowl into it, it's absolutely wonderful. It is one of those games where any team will find it hard to get out there and play but having said that wearing the India colours and representing India every single time is a matter of pride and we all know that. We wanted to give it our best, things went alright. Hopefully the second innings is good as well.

It was something we couldn't replicate back home, and it's been a massive event back home and for us here. Frylinck comes into the side today, he's fit to go. Everyone back home is quite inspired by what we have done and we had some amazing messages over the last few weeks."

India vs Namibia Live, T20 World Cup
Hello and a very warm welcome to the live coverage of another T20 World Cup 2021 Super 12 clash between India and Namibia being played at the Dubai International Stadium in the UAE. This encounter marks the final match for Kohli as T20I captain of the side and also for the Ravi Shastri-led coaching staff. Hence, the 'Men in Blue' would look to give a fitting farewell to some of the most important people in Indian cricket.
- Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli, and later Deepak Chahar, raised hopes of a consolation win before the Proteas managed a four-run victory to sweep the series 3-0.
- After former captain Virat Kohli (65) departed, only the fighting 54 from Deepak Chahar got India within touching distance in 3rd ODI against SA.
- India captain Mithali Raj's quest for a first World Cup trophy enters its sixth edition as the team leaves for New Zealand for a five-match series followed by the ODI World Cup
- This was Kohli's second half-century score in the series, having earlier scored 51 off 63 in the series opener in Paarl last week before registering a five-ball duck in the second match.
- A 98-run partnership between Dhawan & Kohli helped India in going past the 100 mark against South Africa in the third and final ODI at Cape Town.
- Virat Kohli's exit from the leadership role has got everyone talking & Akhtar also weighed in on the captaincy change and future of Indian cricket.
- The former Indian batter said that he won't be surprised if the star batter fetches most money among overseas openers.
- The home team, who has already taken a 2-0 lead in the ODI rubber, finished on 287 with de Kock scoring 124 off 130 balls.
- Amid the ongoing turmoil, Team India incurred a forgettable tour of South Africa, losing 2-1 in Tests and conceding an unassailable 2-0 lead in the ODIs
- He may have not left a mark with the ball but Shreyas took a diving catch to remove Van der Dussen and then effected a run-out to cut short Andile Phehlukwayo's stay at the crease.
- Rassie van der Dussen joined fellow South African AB de Villers and Pakistan's Javed Miandad in an elite list.
- With 17 career tons, he surpassed Australian legend Adam Gilchrist to take the second spot for most centuries as a wicketkeeper in ODIs. Sangakkara still stands atop with 23 tons.
