A thumping win in the second Test against West Indies in Jamaica put Virat Kohli on the highest pedestal of Test captaincy. The 257-run victory was his 28th as Test captain, taking his tally past the previous best - MS Dhoni - to make him India's most successful Test captain. Kohli, however, shied away from taking all the credit for the team's recent success and turned the focus towards the team's collective effort.

"Captaincy is just a 'C' in front of your name honestly. It's the collective effort that matters. It's a by-product of this quality team that we have here, to be honest. If we didn't have the bowlers that we have, I don't think the results would have been possible," Kohli said in the post-match presentation.

Kohli also talked up the philosophy of cricket that he and his team have employed in all their recent successes, throwing light on the players' ability to soak up the pressure and wiggle their way out of tough situations.

"I think that's what Test cricket is all about, [and] that's been our pattern and habit has been all about. When put under pressure, find ways to come out of those situations and really put the situation in your team's favour and then capitalise when the pressure is on the opposition. I think we have done that really well. As a Test team, I think we are placed really nicely. [I am] very confident about how we are going about things," Kohli said.

Kohli reserved high praise for Jasprit Bumrah, who was easily one of India's stand out performers in both the comprehensive victories. Bumrah was nearly unplayable in the second innings of the Antigua Test, finishing with devastating figures of 8-3-7-5. He continued from where he left off, in Jamaica to walk away with a match haul of seven wickets, which included a first-innings six-fer and a hat-trick.

"When he [Bumrah] gets some kind of momentum, you can see what he can do in five-six overs with the new ball, which you saw in the first innings. I haven't seen many more lethal spells than that two spells in the last couple of Tests. As a batsman standing in slips, you can feel for the batsmen who's playing him. He confuses them with angles, with swing, he will set up for the out-swinger and then bowl the in-swinger. It's coming at pace and then he can hit you with bouncers as well. I think he's the most complete bowler in world cricket now," Kohli said in the press conference.

Kohli was also effusive in his praise for India's No. 6 batsman Hanuma Vihari, who made up for the lost opportunity in Antigua [93 in the second innings] by scoring his maiden Test ton in Jamaica.

"I think the find of the series was Hanuma Vihari. The way he's batted under pressure especially, and on a much more challenging wicket here in Jamaica than in Antigua. I think his skill sets were outstanding. I think his temperament and technique were top-notch and he countered everything the opposition threw at him. Very, very pleased with the way he has come about."

Vihari followed the century with an unbeaten and brisk half-century in the second innings when India were looking for a declaration, and finished with a series aggregate of 289 runs - the most in the series across both the teams. More than the volume of the runs scored, it was the assured manner in which he scored them was what pleased his skipper.

"According to the surface, I think it was a top-class innings. He's a guy who's very sure of his game and it shows when he plays. He looks confident and the dressing room feels really calm watching him bat. I think that's a quality he possesses naturally because his game is so correct.

"He's always willing to improve and is accepting of his mistakes and corrects them immediately, and he's getting the results pretty quickly. He plays with a lot of heart, always is up to do anything for the team, and that's why he invariably ends up playing crucial innings for us. It's a very young career so far, but he's shown why he's been backed and selected in this team."

India's next assignment is the home series against South Africa, which begins with the T20Is from September 15.
