Former India batsman VVS Laxman told that what was the biggest mistake that Virat Kohli made due to which the Indian cricket team had to face defeat. India lost by 6 wickets in the second match.

Against England, Team India scored a big score of 336 runs, yet the Indian team lost by 6 wickets at the hands of England. After the defeat of the Indian team, the cricket experts gave their opinion about it and also gave the reasons behind the defeat. Now VVS Laxman, the former batsman of Team India, told that, which is the biggest mistake that Virat Kohli made, due to which the Indian cricket team had to face defeat. 

VVS Laxman, referring to Virat Kohli's biggest lapse, said that if he did not do so, perhaps the team's defeat could have been avoided. Talking to Star Sports, he said that, "When a team is just 30-35 runs away from winning, it is difficult to take wickets in that situation. India got three wickets quickly. It included the wickets of Johnny Bairstow and Jose Buttler. The famous Krishna returned with 2 wickets. I was surprised that Virat Kehli again went for bowling with Krunal Pandya and Kuldeep Yadav. At that time, only fast bowlers could make a comeback in the match. I think this is where Captain Virat Kohli made a big mistake."

Laxman said that it was a wrong decision to keep the Prasidh Krishna away from bowling for too long and he also raised questions about it. Initially, this Indian pacer put a spell of 4 overs. After this, Krishna returned in the 21st over and then the 23rd, 35th and 37th overs were bowled by Krishna, but by then the match was out of hand. Krishna was the most successful bowler in this match and took 2 wickets for 58 runs in 10 overs. So at the same time Kuldeep Yadav scored 84 runs in 10 overs while Krunal Pandya looted 72 runs in 6 overs. Now the third ODI between the two countries will be played on 28 March.
