Jaipur: Virat KohliAustralian captain George Bailey was at a loss of words to explain his team's "absolutely deflating" defeat against India in the second one-dayer but conceded that Virat Kohli's innings turned the game decisively in the home team's favour.

Asked when did he feel the match slipping out of Australia's grip, Bailey said, "The moment Virat came to the crease."

"He started attacking us from ball one but never took any risks which would have helped us come back into the game. He set the tempo and it was smart cricket from him. Basically all three of them (Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma) batted amazingly but it was Virat who took the game away from us. It was pretty awesome." (Match highlights)
