“I had decided to stay positive but then we lost a few (Rohit Sharma, Surya Kumar Yadav) wickets. I still wanted to go ahead but unfortunately I got out,” Kohli told Star Sports.
“I was happy with my intention that I wanted to play my shots. Sometimes when you play responsibly over time, you ask (yourself) if you want to play the big shots early.
“You don’t want to be careless, but at the same time you want to play your shots. That’s the balance you strive for,” said the former India captain.
Kohli praised Rishabh Pant’s quick half-century and his stand of 76 runs in just 5.5 overs along with Venkatesh Iyer.
“Today, I was happy with that balance. The wicket was holding in the middle so if we are smart with the ball, we have had enough. Special mention to Rishabh and Venky’s performance at the end. They have given us those 10 extra runs. ,” Kohli said.
