India captain Virat Kohli honestly admitted after the first Test: “Played two days of good cricket to get in a position and then just lose it in an hour. Really hurts.” But the main reason that India lost the game was that Kohli had in his mind that his return ticket was on 19th December.
He was planning the game according to the date of his return ticket and hence was seen relaxed that the test match got completed in 3 days. It was only after going to the hotel room that he realized that his return ticket was on 21st December. But nothing can be done now. Kohli has to wait for 2 more days and spend time with Shastri.
They cannot even discuss the strategies for the next match as Shastri doesn’t really have any strategy. The only thing Kohli do and it is one of his favorites things to do is that he can go to the gym and spend the next two days, that will keep him away from the average Indian batsmen also.
