Indian Cricket Fans aren't able to digest the fact that Pakistan won by a margin of 180 runs in the final of ICC Champions Trophy 2017. Many of them blame Kohli's captaincy for the crushing defeat.
Ahead of the match, Former Pakistan Skipper Imran Khan advised Skipper Sarfraz Ahmed not to invite India to bat first if he wins the toss. Why didn't Kohli keep this statement in mind? Pak won easily because when there is less pressure it batted first. Had if India batted first, Pak would have found difficult to chase a score of even 250 runs under pressure.
Coming to bowling, Selection of Ashwin in Playing XI is being faulted. Netizens felt Kedar Jadhav has done a much better job and Umesh Yadav/Shami in place of Ashwin should have helped. Even field placement of Kohli attracted criticism. People slammed Kohli for not utilizing the life he got in Muhammad Amir's bowling.
Netizens opined body language of Team India showed they lacked the required intensity to dominate the opponents. They feel Kohli should take complete responsibility for this failure.
