Virat Kohli: I mean I thought New Zealand were pretty good with the bat. We did not take our chances. At one stage we were looking for 225-230 but credit to Bumrah and Bhuvi to have pulled things back. I think we were pretty happy with the way last 5 overs went. But eventually we were not good with bat. When you chasing 200, all the batsmen need to chip in or one guy needs to go over the strike rate of 200. Once you lose a couple of wickets, it becomes tough to pick up your areas. MS was very good in the end, but we left ourselves too much to get. That happens, you want to go for big shots. But you don’t. It has happened with a lot of batsmen where you don’t get to go on strike. But that’s how the game goes. Hardik has done the job for us many times. We back them to do well. Not during the early half of the innings. Maybe after 13-14 overs it started gripping. No excuses, we were not good with the bat. We admit that. There was not any dew that we thought would settle in. We lost the toss, we did not get to choose what we would have done. We were just not good enough on the day.
