LONDON, June 9: �We are not invincible,� said India captain Virat Kohli as he tried to make sense of the stunning loss to Sri Lanka despite posting, what he thought, was a winning total in their Champions Trophy clash here.

India set Sri Lanka a tough target of 322, which the islanders easily chased down with seven wickets in hand.

�I personally thought that we had enough on the board at the halfway stage. And I think our bowlers also bowled decently well. If the Lankan batsmen come out and play like that and everyone plays well, you have to give credit to the opposition as well. We are not invincible,� Kohli said at the post-match media conference here last night.

�We are playing against other sides who are also champion sides (in their own rights),� he reasoned.

�There�s always hindsight. I thought we bowled decently. But when you don�t execute properly, there is always food for thought. Here you have to give credit to the other team,� Kohli added.

Kohli said that rather than criticising his colleagues, he would like to compliment the kind of batsmanship displayed by Sri Lanka yesterday.

�If a side comes out there and plays cricket with that kind of mindset and executes their shots so well, then you have to take your hat off sometimes and say �very well played�,� he said. � PTI
