Virat Kohli: We weren't good enough with the bat

Virat Kohli: We weren't good enough with the bat”

Playing in only his second T20I - and after bowling just one over on debut in the series opener - Behrendorff produced a dream first over, responding to a pair of Rohit Sharma boundaries by trapping the star opening lbw then dismissing captain Virat Kohli caught-and-bowled two balls later. "He bowled really well". He added that Behrendroff bowled well, making full use of the wicket. His line and length was very tight. He swings the ball, he's got pace.

"Few ones that I got hit to the boundary probably weren't where I needed to be bowling". While addressing the reporters after the match, Bhuvneshwar explained the challenges India faced, "It was a tough wicket for batting". Rain was around; it was a damp wicket.

The innings dented further when Adam Zampa (2-19) had MS Dhoni (13) stumped and in his next over also had Kedhar Jadhav (27) castled while Nathan Coulter-Nile (1-23) accounted for Bhuvneshwar Kumar (1). So you know, Australian bowlers made the most of the wicket, I think we tried to rebuild it. But we couldn't do it. We can't really point a finger on someone and say it was their fault.

In the last 5 years or so, Kohli has worked extremely hard on his game and established himself as one of the modern day greats of the game.

India made a fighting start in defence of the meager total, as Jasprit Bumrah (1/25) and Bhuvneshwar (1/9) removed risky openers David Warner (2) and Aaron Finch (8) cheaply.

While Australia lost skipper David Warner and Aaron Finch early in chase, Moises Henriques and Travis Head sealed the eight-wicket win for the visitors. If you have to win the match, you have to keep taking wickets especially in the middle overs which we couldn't do. "I would say they bowled better than us", Bhuvneshwar explained. "He was fortunate to have got those wickets", said the pacer from Uttar Pradesh.

"That is something part of a strategy... what the captain is thinking, what he wants to do". The Australian left-arm speedster picked up four wickets in three overs in his first spell. But that was his (Kohli's) thinking.

Unlike Behrehdorff, who bowled all his four overs at one go, Bhuvneshwar and Jasprit Bumrah bowled just 3 overs apiece at the start of the second innings.

"It is up to him if he wanted us to bowl, we could have completed our quota".
