Virat Kohli's One Man Show

Chase-master' Virat Kohli has once again saved Indian team from the Jaws of defeat. With this innings India chased down 161-run target with six wickets and five balls to spare and with this win, India have also qualified for the semifinals and going to lock horns with West Indies.

Electing to bat after winning the toss, Australia showed great intent and killer instinct to set the stage on fire in front of a packed house and seemed well on course to a massive total before Ashish Nehra (1/20), Ravindra Jadeja (0/20) and part-time bowler Yuvraj Singh (1/19) applied the brakes.

Although Australian Openers Usman Khawaja (26) and Aaron Finch (43) has given a good start Indian bowlers came up with a disciplined effort to halt Australians them to 160/6.

India turned the game on its head in the last four over’s with the flamboyant Kohli unleashing a flurry of shots to take the game away from the Australians much to the delight of the capacity home crowd. Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni (18 not out) hit the winning runs a four to the wild celebration at the Indian camp as well among the vociferous crowd.
