Virat Kohli’s thoughtful words after India’s loss against Pakistan in the Champions Trophy is getting appreciation from all over the world. Although the Indians are upset with the performance of Indian team in the finals, Virat Kohli’s post-loss speech will make you love him more.
Let’s not ignore the fact that Indian cricket team showed off their outstanding performance throughout the tournament and entered into the finals. Although India has lost the match, our love for the Indian players will never ever diminish. Well, after India lost a match against Pakistan from 180 runs, Kohli appreciated the Pakistani players for playing exceptionally.
He showed off a true sportsmanship in his speech. Here is what Virat Kohli said in a speech, “I want to congratulate Pakistan, they had an amazing tournament, the way they turned things around, speak volumes for the talent they have.” He further said, “They proved it again, they can upset anyone on their day, disappointing for us but I have a smile on my face because we played well to reach the final.”
Here is what Kohli said further about the winning team,
“Credit to them they outplayed us today in all departments, this is what happens in sport. We can’t take anyone lightly but they were more intense and passionate on the day. With the ball we could have had a few more wicket-taking opportunities. We tried to do our best, but even with the ball, they were aggressive, we didn’t show any resistance apart from Hardik, whose knock was outstanding.”
Former cricketers Brendon McCullum and Shane Warne too took to Twitter to appreciate Kohli.
Finally, we hope Kohli will learn from their mistake and come back with a bang next year. No wonder we have lost, let’s not forget to applaud their performance throughout the year.
