"We Weren't Clinical With Bat", Says Virat Kohli After Loss To England

Share

India's unbeaten run at ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 ended on Sunday as they lost to England by 31 runs.

Speaking on the Test Match Special podcast, Bairstow said he was "disappointed" by the stories published this week. "The closest to a complete performance we have had".

"It was frightful to be out of the team but I needed to stay positive and I knew if I worked hard I would be back out on the pitch". England were 183 for 1 after 26 overs in a match they needed to win to keep semi-final qualification in their own hands after successive defeats by Sri Lanka and Australia had rocked their hopes of reaching the knockout phase. Despite coming into the tournament as favourites, if England lose today, they will be all but out of the competition. We could have restricted them more but Ben played a good innings. Rishabh Pant, playing his first game of the tournament, chipped in with 32. "The mood is absolutely same in the change room, we understand as professional cricketers it's a setback", Kohli said. Once he gets to 20, then it's a different ball game.

"We took on the spinners and that's the way we want to play our cricket". Hopefully this kick-starts it for us.

Morgan, who failed with the bat again, caught hooking his ninth ball and out for one, said the victory went some way to restoring the team's faith in their attacking approach. I thought they were going towards 360 at one stage and we did quite well to pull them back. Roy, who looked in good form in the initial part of the World Cup but had an injury stint to miss out in between only to return to the team on Sunday.

While England smashed 13 sixes in the first innings against the Indian bowling, the Indian batsmen managed to clear the fence only once and that too in the final over.
