“It’s a surreal atmosphere” – Virat Kohli hails MCG crowd after win vs Pakistan

As far as their first game is concerned, Hardik Pandya and Arshdeep Singh claimed three wickets each, it was Virat Kohli whose unbeaten 82 sealed the deal as well. However, after the win, Kohli, who won the Player of the Match award shared that the atmosphere was great and he also revealed his strategies as well.

“It’s a surreal atmosphere, I have no words, no idea how that happened. I am really lost for words. Hardik believed we can do it, if we stayed till the end. When Shaheen bowled from the pavilion end, that’s when we decided to take him down. Haris is their prime bowler, and I hit those two sixes. The calculation was simple. Nawaz had one over to bowl, so if I could take Haris down, they would panic,” Kohli said. 

“From 28 in 8, it came down to 16 to 6. I tried to stick to my instincts. The first one was back of a hand slower ball (the one over long-on). Standing here I just feel like it was meant to be. Till today Mohali was my best innings against Australia. Today I will count this one higher,” Virat Kohli concluded.
