Virat Kohli on his reaction post-dismissal

In the post-match conference, Kohli was asked about his poor scores in knock-out games at the World Cup. The 30-year-old said that he was disappointed at not being able to contribute when the team needed it the most. The prolific scorer, with 41 ODI tons to his name, was dismissed by Trent Boult in the third over of India’s innings. The ball took a sharp movement towards the middle stump after pitching on the leg stump. Kohli failed to get his bat down in time as the ball trapped his pads. Kohli was given out though DRS review showed the white leather had just kissed the top of the stumps. He said it is quite obvious to be disappointed as getting dismissed for a low score is never pleasing. He termed it has a natural reaction and nothing else.
