45 minutes of bad cricket: India captain Virat Kohli on World Cup exit
Captain of the Indian cricket team, Virat Kohli, blamed ‘40, 45 minutes of bad cricket’ for the squad’s exit from the Cricket World Cup. Kohli said that his side played outstanding cricket during the initial stages of the tournament, reaching the top of the table, but just 40 minutes of bad cricket ruined their chances of winning the Cup. India failed to successfully chase a target of 239 set by New Zealand in the first semi-final. The Indian top order failed to perform, but former captain MS Dhoni and all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja held the fort. But the duo’s efforts couldn’t secure a ticket to the final.
