It is a mixed feeling- Kohli
Bangalore captain Kohli expressed disappointment over the defeat and said that like every match, he had also landed in it to win. Kohli said after the match, ‘It is a mixed feeling. You descend to win. The team management told us about the figure of 17.3 overs in the 11th over. Although the match was going away from us, in the middle overs, we gained good control.’

Kohli, who has been consistently performing poorly with the bat, believes that the team needs to show more bravery in batting. According to the captain, ‘I think we have played well in the tournament to qualify. We have to win two matches before the final. We have to do better in the last overs in batting and in the powerplay in bowling which is our strong side.’
