Kohli’s fielding masterclass

Notably, Kohli didn’t have a good time with the bat as he was dismissed for a first-ball duck. However, he compensated that with his brilliance on the field as apart from pulling off a certain six he also secured a brilliant catch when Najibullah Zadran lofted a delivery from Avesh Khan.

His agile fielding efforts contributed significantly to India’s remarkable performance. Further, Kohli’s exploits extended beyond catches, as he executed a sharp throw from long on to run out the dangerous Gulbadin off the very first ball of the first Super Over.

The hero with the bat for India turned out to be captain Rohit Sharma who smashed a brilliant century (121 not out) and roared back in form in grand style. He was well supported by finisher Rinku Singh, who remained unbeaten on 69.
