Virat Kohli is definitely not human. The way he goes about his business in a run chase, is the work of a gifted superhuman, who seems to be possessed with magical powers. His knock against Australia was just another instance of his sheer brilliance and panache, which floored the Kangaroos. Kohli roared like a lion in the middle and his batting is just an inspiration for millions across the globe.
In the post match presentation, Kohli admitted that he was very happy with his contribution. “This is what you play cricket for. You need challenges in every game because they improve you as a cricketer, but you don’t like these situations because they are tough.
I don’t know what to say, because I am overwhelmed by the situation we were in and to win from there was quite an effort. MS kept me calm in the end; I could have got overexcited. Overall good team effort and very happy with my personal contribution,” said a delighted Kohli.
Kohli also said that this knock was among his top innings he has ever played. “This innings has to be in the Top 3. But I am a bit emotional, so I will put this on top. Against world-class Australia, a quarterfinal and at home. Mohali has always been special and the semifinal in 2011 was special too. The electrifying atmosphere in the stadium helps you push through.”
Stressing on the significance of running well between the wickets, Kohli said, “Me and Dhoni have always run well between the wickets. We have a great understanding about where to hit the ball. You do gun for that and all those fitness regimes paid off tonight. When I’m tired, I should be able to run as fast as when I’m on zero.”
