NEW DELHI: Chasemaster Virat Kohli hit an explosive half-century as he single-handedly powered India to a stunning four-wicket win over arch-rivals Pakistan with a magnificent 53-ball 82 not out in their opening T20 World Cup game at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Sunday.
Pakistan recovered from a wobbly start to post a fighting 159 for eight. India completed the chase in the last ball, with Kohli and Hardik Pandya (40) doing the bulk of the scoring after a dismal start to their innings.
The two revived India with a 113-run stand for the fourth wicket after they were reeling at 31/4 at one stage.
Social media platform Twitter started flooding with congratulatory messages to ‘King’ Kohli as soon as India completed the victory.
