India rode on Kohli’s career-best score of 94 not out off 50 balls to help his team chase down 208 with 6 wickets and 8 balls to spare. Kohli produced another batting masterclass, smashing 6 fours and six sixes during his stroke-filled knock.
Amitabh Bachchan quotes his dialogue on Virat’s explosive knock. He was one of the first ones to congratulate Kohli for his innings. He quoted a famous dialogue from his hit film, Amar Akbar Anthony on his Twitter handle.
“Yaar, how many times I have told you this, don’t tease Virat, but you did not listen to me, now see he gave you a perfect response. Look at West Indies’ face, how much he rattled them (with due respects to Anthony Bhai),” Bachchan tweeted in Hindi.

In a mammoth 208 run chase, Virat Kohli walked out to bat when Rohit Sharma fell for 8 in the 4th over itself. The skipper had a shaky start to his blistering innings as he failed to execute his shots timely a couple of times.
At one point, Kohli was 3 off 9 balls and 20 off 20 but the swashbuckling batsman then got into the groove, finishing with 94 runs off 50 balls. Kohli’s last 68 runs came off 25 balls.
After being awarded the Man of the Match in the post-match presentation ceremony, Kohli advised the young cricketers to not follow his first-half of the innings.
“To young batsmen watching, don’t follow the first half of my innings. I was batting poorly at that time. I didn’t want to put KL under pressure but I couldn’t get going. Luckily got that one over from Holder, and then I began to analyze why I’m going wrong. Realized I’m not a slogger but a timer instead, and then changed my playing style,” Kohli said.
