"My wicket changed the whole scenario of the match. We were easily poised at that stage as we needed 30 runs off 25 balls. I think we made lots of mistakes today. We should have played much better cricket shots. We could have been much more smarter today. But that's how you learn after making mistakes," Kohli told reporters at the post-match press conference.
"I thought I could finish it off for my team. I executed the shot pretty but that went to hand. If it had gone to the gap, we could have won the game. But that's Twenty20 cricket. I don't think we played the right kind of shots. We should have made better decisions while batting on such wicket. We could have got in more and tried to take chances towards the end," he added.
Kohli said that the Chargers had nothing to lose as they were already out of the tournament and they played free cricket and bowled in good areas.
He rued the lack of partnerships in today's match.
"Apart from small partnership between me and Saurabh Tiwary we could not build any sort of partnership. In T20 small partnerships are needed which did not happen today," Kohli said.
On Gayle getting out cheaply today, Kohli said, "He (Chris Gayle) is always a big player for us but the other players are also ready to step up as well. But unfortunately that did not happen today. MORE
