In the aftermath of the loss, Bhuvneshwar Kumar said, “You always miss him [Virat] or his kind of player. At the same time, it’s a good opportunity for the young guy who came in place of him. We don’t always want to depend on him. Of course, what he has done is amazing.
“If you look at the cricket we have been playing in the last few months, we have played good cricket and such matches come after some time. So, it is a kind of reality check what we can do and improve in the next matches.
“We were confident after winning the series but things didn’t go our way. I don’t want to take credit away from these guys (New Zealand bowlers). They bowled really well and outplayed us.
