In reply to Australia 160 India lost their opener Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli lost their wicket early and Raina for one more time edged a short bowl by Shane Watson and caught by wicketkeeper Peter Nevill. As Virat Kohli started stitching the innings Yuvraj Singh suffered an ankle twist that gutted Virat’s philosophy of chasing.
However, things have changed as MS Dhoni come in as Yuvraj departs scoring 18. Shane Watson did a remarkable job as he scored 31 and took crucial wickets of Rohit Sharma and Suresh Raina.
In the end, Kohli and Dhoni stood tall and scored an impressive 57 runs partnership to guide India to a well-deserved semi-final place. Here is how twitter reacted to Kohli’s stunning innings of 82 vs. Australia.

Yep, Yuvraj stand there, and swing your bat. If it goes for a six, good, if you get out, better. #IndvsAus

Maxwell very unlucky after deceiving Kohli with a Saqlain-style doosra. Could be the hint of luck that India need. #INDvsAUS
