Colombo: Given quite a few anxious moments by minnows Afghanistan in their World Twenty20 opener, India's in-form batsman Virat Kohli conceded that his side's bowling at the death overs is a "worrying factor".
"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 after the scrappy 23-run win on Wednesday.
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.
