T20I series: Virat Kohli praises Glen Maxwell, admits Australia outplayed India
New Delhi : In the post match interaction with the media, Indian skipper Virat Kohli was courageous enough to admit that the Australia 'outplayed' them in the T20I series. He also praised Australian batsman Glen Maxwell for a great show in Bengaluru.
Glen Maxwell slammed nine sixes in his 113 run knock against India in the second T20I, taking game away from India's hand who might have managed to defend 190 runs.
“It was a pretty short series to summarise the performances. Australia outplayed us in all departments and deserved to win. 190 is a good total on most grounds but if there is so much dew as there was tonight and when you have an innings like what Glenn Maxwell played, nothing much you can do,” Kohli said at the post-match press conference.
Virat Kohli defended his bowlers saying that its the dew which plays a major role.
“Every team is looking to take each game like that but it’s also important to win matches. We would have liked to get across the line in at least this game but I can’t be too hard on the bowlers due to the amount of dew,” he said.
