Virat Kholi said, “That performance certainly has to be in my top three but probably it is top right now because I’m a bit emotional, A lot was riding on us playing at home and with the crowd you want to give them as much entertainment as possible.”
Australian captain Steven Smith said, “That was a pretty serious innings there, under pressure. He hit it right out of the middle and he’s done it for a long time. Virat played an unbelievable knock. I think 160 was around par, it just took an unbelievable innings to get India over the line.”

Take this from me @imVkohli is different league. That run chase was nowhere after 16 overs. Took it on and bossed it. England India final ?

Virat Kohli superbly led the chase hitting 32 runs from the last 11 balls as he finished with an unbeaten 82 runs. MS Dhoni smashed the final runs to secure victory with five balls of their 20 overs spare.
India will now meet West Indies in World T20 semi-final round of the tournament in Mumbai on Thursday a day after England face New Zealand in the other semi final in Dehli.
