We are not bothered by defeat against Australia: Kohli

Indian skipper Kohli, after India lost the decisive fifth ODI by 35 runs on Wednesday to concede the series 2-3 to Australia, said, that it was not something that is bothering the team management. 'None of the guys in the change room are panicking. The support staff is not feeling down after this defeat because we knew things we wanted to do in these last three games,' Kohli said. 'To be honest, it doesn't feel like something off has happened because we have been playing such good cricket. The other team has really been more passionate and more energetic than us in the pressure moments. They've grabbed the crucial moments in the game better than us. They deserve to win.'

Kohli asserted that India is pretty sure about its playing XI, going into the showpiece ICC event. 'As a side, combination wise, we are pretty sorted. Maximum one change, you'll get to see in the World Cup. As a side, we're balanced,' he said. 'Hardik Pandya will come back to the team. With him, there's batting depth, and bowling option opens up. We know where we have to go as a combination. The XI is clear in our head. We just have to take better decisions in pressure situations to go far in the World Cup.'
