Virat Kohli-led team India on 6th September managed to beat Sri Lanka by seven wickets in the one-off T20 at the R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo.
Meanwhile, cricket fraternity took no time in reacting on team India's empathic win and took on Twitter to share their felling.
There's reason why Virat Kohli is said to be a master in modern day cricket when it comes to chasing. It's his temperament and the extraordinary ability to pace his innings during the run chase.
And on Wednesday evening, the 28-year-old once again showcased the immense talent, the extraordinary batting skills and the variety of shots that he has to his credit.
Chasing a total of 171 at the damp Premdasa pitch was not going to be easy, especially after the loss of two early wickets.
Experienced Rohit Sharma (9) and Lokesh Rahul (24) both were in dressing with the score of 42 inside six overs. However, what came next was what the Indian fans were hoping to see.
Here is how the cricketing fraternity reacted to Team India’s victory:
India started this series as favourites but to overwhelm the opposition 9-0 is quite staggering.— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) September 6, 2017
Wonderful support performance by @im_manishpandey. Realised it was Kohli's chase and kept finding himself at the non-striker's end.— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) September 6, 2017
Seen it so many times but can't stop admiring how @imVkohli structures a run-chase. Almost like it were like a canvas to paint as he chooses— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) September 6, 2017
