The batting maestro, along with KL Rahul, chased down 207 runs with over eight balls to spare. Kohli’s two flick shots during his innings left the entire cricket world open-mouthed in awe, struck by its majesty and beauty.

Speaking after the match, Kohli said that he doesn’t wish to change his batting much, even though he did make it clear that he doesn’t wish for youngsters to copy how he went over the top in trying to get the scoreboard moving in the first half of his innings.
