Kohli’s Post-Match Presentation:

Well, it is a surreal atmosphere. I honestly do not have any words, I don’t know how it happened. Hardik kept telling me that just believe, and stay till the end. Honestly, I am lost for words. Well, I think when Shaheen bowled from the pavilion end, that’s when I spoke to Virat that we need to take him down and that’s when the conversation happened, where he said Nawaz has to bowl one over. He said that if I can take Haris Rauf down, then they will panic because he is their prime bowler. Well, I was kind of pumping myself up to hit those two sixes. It was 28 off 8 and it became 16 off 6 so I am lost for words,Kohli said after the match.

“Well, till today I have said that Mohali (2016 T20 World Cup) innings against Australia is my best. I got 82 off 52 there and today I got 82 off 53. But I think, today, I will count this one higher because of the magnitude of the game and what the situation was. It seemed impossible, but Hardik kept pushing me in that partnership and we just went deep and it just happened,” an emotional Kohli said after the match.
