It’s a great moment for Virat, it’s a great moment for Indian cricket.

He has had a fantastic career. He still has some time left in his cricket career to achieve greater milestones and I hope he continues doing that. Congratulations to him, his family, to his coach and to all those who are being involved in Virat’s cricketing career. I wish him all the best for his Test match and hope he performs very well.”
