VIDEO: How Kohli’s brilliance took India to semis: Virat Kohli played an unbelievable knock of 82* as India pulled off an magnificent six-wicket victory against Australia in the final Super 10 Group 2 match, a virtual quarter-final at Mohali on Sunday. With it India made their third semifinal World T20 (2007, 2014, 2016).
India were chasing 161 on a track which was expected to be on the slower side in the later part of the innings and it did turn out to be so. But Virat Kohli seemed to be not bothered about anything and was concentrating on timing and placement.
Virat Kohli continued his heroics in this match after a series of good performances. His innings featured nine boundaries and two sixes and he turned the match around in the 18th over, when India needed 39 runs off 18 balls.
New Zealand had earlier qualified for the semi-finals from Group 2 while England and West Indies have gone through to the last-four stage from Group 1. So India are set to play semi-final on 31st March at Wankhede, Mumbai.
