That’s it! India win by 6 wickets!
India finish it off in style. Kohli cuts one through point for a four and then Dhoni smacks one over long on for a six to level the scores. A single to mid-wicket off the last ball wins it for India. Kohli is ecstatic and so is Sachin Tendulkar and Amitabh Bachchan in the crowd. Brilliant win for India. Kohli was batting in a different zone altogether. He remains not out on 55 off 37 balls with 7 fours and one six.
Kohli the master chaser has done it again. Almost a repeat of the Asia Cup clash. India did well to restrict Pakistan to 118. Pakistan came out roaring defending the target as they removed Dhawan, Rohit and Riana inside the powerplay. It was at this time that Kohli and Yuvraj got together and steadied the ship, played sensible and then took on the bowling. Kohli was batting in an altogether different pitch as he played some glorious shots. In the end it proved to be an easy chase.
After 15 overs,India 106/4 ( Virat Kohli 50 , MS Dhoni 5)
FIFTY for Kohli! Spectcular innings this. He creams one through extra cover for four to move onto 49 and then takes a single to long on to bring up his fifty. The Eden Gardens crowd gives him a standing ovation. He’s been class apart. 7 runs off the over. 13 needed off 18 now.
