Our bowling at the death needs improvement: Kohli

Having been put through some anxious moments during their match against Afghanistan on Wednesday, India's Virat Kohli conceded that the team's inability to bowl accurately at the death is a "worrying factor". India scraped through to a 23-run win in their opening match of the World T20 competition but not before Mohammad Nabi gave Afghanistan a glimpse of hope.

"I believe we could have done better as a bowling unit and won by a bigger margin. We could have bowled in better areas. I think our bowling in the initial overs has been pretty good but it is the bowling at the death that needs to improve," Kohli said. Asked whether he expected Afghanistan to put up the kind of fight they did, Kohli replied, "That's exactly what happens when you play a lower-ranked opposition. They do not have the fear of failure. They are not concerned about the match situations and little things. "Normally, in these situations, you find players expressing themselves well and doing the right things more often than not."
