“Probably our worst batting performance, if not the worst of all time in IPL. Very hurtful for me to stand here and talk.,” a visibly disappointed Kohli said, following his side’s morale-sapping loss. “I thought we could capitalize and chase the score down. I can’t really say anything now, because it was that bad. As professional cricketers, we are expected to do much better. Our performance was unacceptable. Disgraceful batting, reckless from us, one of the worst collapses ever.”
“The sightscreen is very small here, and one guy just got up when the bowler was loading up – that was right behind the bowler’s arm. But that was just the first wicket, there were nine others in the hut. It was a shocking batting performance. We just didn’t turn up in the second innings at all,” Kohli opined.
The nature of IPL provides very little time for introspection and Kohli felt this wasn’t the time to sit down and dissect the abject failure of the batting unit.
“There’s nothing to review. We’ve got to take the positives from the first half, nothing to talk about in the second innings, it was that bad honestly. There’s no point holding on to such a performance. We are a much better team than this, we scored 200-plus in the last game, but this was shocking for everyone.”
