Anyone can go wrong under pressure: Virat Kohli
“Anyone can make mistakes under pressure,” Kohli stated at the post-match press conference.
“It was a big match with a difficult situation. I remember playing my first match in the Champions Cup against Pakistan and coming out after a horrific shot against Shahid Afridi. I couldn’t sleep and stare at the ceiling until five in the morning thinking I wouldn’t be able to play again. It’s normal to feel frustrated” .
“Tomorrow, we’ll regroup ourselves as a group. When the team environment is great, you learn from these things. The management and the captain deserve credit for creating the atmosphere that says, ‘Don’t worry, next time something like this happens, we want it to come our way.'” Therefore, one must admit his mistake, take appropriate action, and look forward to the next time he is under pressure,”Virat Kohli said.
