Kohli's take on the performance by the team
"As a team, we need to understand that what was the reality of the situation out there in the middle. That's where those 20-25 extra runs would have been good. But brilliant bowling in the first six, did not allow us to get those extra runs. We know exactly how the game went and where it went wrong. We have absolute clarity of it, which is a good thing to know about where you went wrong as a team," Virat Kohli said in post-match press conference.
India would next be playing against New Zealand on October 31 in Dubai.
