“It was entertaining how AB and Wiese played it out in the end. A lot of things went wrong except for what those two did. “We should have had a better approach in our batting. We need guys to play the way AB did, Wiese also backed himself and played positive cricket,” said Kohli at the post-match presentation ceremony.

He said while some of the batsmen got out unluckily “at wrong times”, “We have a lot of things to look at, including the bowling. “We bank on our opening stand and the start we get, that’s one area we need to improve in as well. We gave too many extras and we need to look at that,” Kohli said.
