Kohli praises Windies bowling after India loss
India skipper Virat Kohli praised the West Indies bowlers after his side suffered an 11-run defeat in the fourth One-Day International (ODI) at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium here.
"Credit to the West Indies bowlers, they created those dot balls that induced those mistakes. We faltered with the bat and that can happen in this game. We just have to put this behind us and come back fresh for the next game," Virat Kohli told reporters after Sunday's game.
The hosts, who elected to bat first, were restricted to 189/9 in their allotted 50 overs here on Sunday. The West Indies then produced a disciplined bowling performance to wrap up the Indian batting for 178 runs.
West Indies skipper Jason Holder picked up a five-wicket haul to help his side successfully defend a low total.
The Indian skipper also applauded his bowlers but criticised the batsmen for the failed show.
"We bowled really well to restrict them to 189," Kohli said.
"Our shot selection wasn't up to the mark, losing crucial wickets at crucial stages. You've got to keep up the momentum through the game."
