When you don’t grab your chances you do not deserve to win: Kohli
Chasing India’s 190, Lewis smashed a blistering 125* off just 62 balls to lead his side to a comfortable victory over the visitors. Lewis, who was dropped twice in his innings, hit six boundaries and 12 sixes .
Speaking about the dropped chances, Kohli said that a team don’t deserve to win if they drop chances. “We dropped a few chances and if you don’t grab them you don’t deserve to win,” said Virat Kohli.
Earlier, in the first innings, the Virat Kohli side looked at one point looked set to post around 220 comfortably but the Windies bowlers managed to restrict the visitors to 190/6 from their 20 overs.
“Even in the first innings, we could have added 25-30 extra. We were on course for 230. If you give a good start up the order, one batsman has to bat through. I think Dinesh was good, but we needed someone to get 80-90 which a team needs in T20 cricket, I think. Then we didn’t start well with the ball and didn’t field well either,” said the Indian captain.
Lastly, the 28-year- old, Kohli praised the West Indians for their performance in the one-off game. “West Indies have a good T20 team, they have carried on with the same team for a couple of years. And in experimental stage, we’d have up and downs. But we need to keep going. One game in the ODIs we lost, we won three convincingly. T20s is anyone’s game, and one game doesn’t make a series according to me,” he signed off.
