Kohli tweeted saying that the team is more than just that – it’s a family. Sharing a picture of the team huddle from the WTC final at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton, Kohli wrote “This isn’t just a team. It’s a family.” Adding to that, with a heart emoji, he wrote “We move ahead. TOGETHER.”

New Zealand defeated India by eight wickets in the rain-affected final of the WTC to be crowned champions.
Kohli had said before the final too that India have been outstanding in the last few years in Test cricket and one match is not the best way to judge where they stand as compared to the rest of the world.
He had said that cricket would carry on for them regardless of the outcome of the WTC final.
India’s Test team will have a month to regroup after the loss in the WTC final, with a five-match Test series against hosts England awaiting them in August.
