(Photo) Kohli admits early wickets kept India behind the eight ball

Reflecting on the morale-denting loss at the hands of arch-rivals Pakistan, Indian skipper Virat Kohli said the early wickets were the primary reason India stayed behind the eight ball. Shaheen Afridi nipped out Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul to leave India reeling at 6 for 2 before Kohli’s half-century helped the men in blue post a respectable 151. With dew settling in, and a clinical show from Mohammad Rizwan and Babar Azam, Pakistan breezed home to bag a ten-wicket win.
