Toss turned out to be very important: Virat Kohli

Wellington/IBNS: As New Zealand thrashed India in the first Test by 10 wickets, skipper Virat Kohli said toss played a crucial role and turned out to be an important factor in determining the result of the clash.

"Toss turned out to be very important. As a batting unit we take pride in being competitive, but we weren't. Even scoring 220-230 would've been good. The first innings put us behind and then the lead put us under more pressure," Kohli said after the match.

"The bowlers toiled well, as a bowling group we've taken pride in being competitive. Till the first 7 NZ wickets, we were really good. Wanted to restrict the lead to under 100, but the last runs from their batsmen made things difficult. But bowlers can still be more disciplined, they were not as happy with their bowling performance," he said.

Standing beside Shaw, he said: "You don't want to be too hard on guys like Shaw. He's played just 2 overseas Tests. He will figure a way, he will find a way to score runs. Mayank applied himself well, and he's the only other person apart from Rahane who got us any momentum with the bat. Our strength is to put big scores for our bowlers to bowl at, and that was missing in this match."
