Chargers win over RCB
But in the end my wicket changed the whole face of the match. We were poised at that stage, needing 30 off 25 balls but we failed to get home. Today we made a lot of mistakes and we need to learn from it," Kohli said.
Ashish Reddy bowled under pressure mixing his leg-cutters impressively.
Earlier, Jean-Paul Duminy rediscovered his batting form more prominent for the late onslaught he launched against Zaheer Khan and off-spinner Muthiah Muralitharan to help Deccan Chargers score 132 for seven, even which looked unlikely at one stage.
The inside out six over mid off off Zaheer was the pick of them for its audacity, But for Duminy's spark of brilliance towards the end.
