Virat Kohli opens up on World Cup loss

Wednesday, July 24, 2019 • Common Sport News Comments

India's journey in the recently concluded ICC World Cup 2019 came to a halt after their semi-final match against New Zealand, even though they were clear favourites to win the trophy.

Indian team skipper Virat Kohli opened up on the team's World Cup campaign earlier today. "I have learned most in my life from failures and setbacks. The worst setbacks have not only motivated me but also improved me as a person, made me understand the importance of those times more than the success. It makes you sit down and think about what you need to do now, build a roadmap for yourself. Secondly, these moments show you the people who are going to stand by you in tough times, and the people who will jump ship," Virat stated in the interview.

He further added, "When your belief is right up there and everyone’s playing so well, and suddenly, you know, you’ve been outplayed. It’s very difficult to digest because you know you didn’t make many mistakes to be knocked out. When you make mistakes, you can point them out and take ownership of that but when you have been outplayed then the acceptance becomes difficult. You wake up and think you didn’t do much wrong but we are still out."
