Kohli scored a valiant 63 off 48 in the chase and added a crucial 104 runs for the 3rd wicket with Suryakumar Yadav (69). Suryakumar took the lead role in the partnership but Kohli also played his part and kept the scoreboard ticking.
After Suryakumar’s dismissal, the former India captain played some spanking shots before being caught on the circle by Aaron Finch in the final over. Despite his dismissal, there was never a doubt regarding India’s win as Hardik Pandya and Dinesh Karthik were out in the middle.
“In that situation, it was much needed. I thought let’s take my chance. There were two-three shots in my mind, was trying to hit over mid-off. Thoughts have always been the same, have always wanted to express myself,” Suryakumar said about his dismissal for 69.
“That’s how I practice in the nets. Just loving at No.4. A lot of challenges and responsibilities as well (for the T20 World Cup). You can’t shy away from expressing yourself. You have to be smart,” he added.
