Virat Kohli has stated that he made a mistake by trying to go after Jasprit Bumrah against Mumbai Indians at the M Chinnaswamy stadium. Bumrah dismissed Virat Kohli for 46 runs which derailed RCB’s chase a bit before AB de Villiers played an aggressive knock to take his team close to the target.
However, he couldn’t complete the task and the home team lost the game by 6 runs in the end. Bumrah was awarded Man of the Match award for his three wickets.
“I got out at a wrong point of time. I mean Jassi is a top-class bowler. A bit of a mistake from me to take him on at that stage. Mumbai is lucky to have him. And also Malinga. And if Jassi is in good form, it is good for India.
“When they were 147 for 7, we should have done better. The last few overs were brutal for us. A few more strikes apart from AB could have done the job for us. We need to be smarter at death bowling. Sure the guys will take a lot of learnings from the game. I think the way they bowled, we can learn from their game. The onus is always on each and every member of the team,” said Virat Kohli at the post-match presentation.
