“There is no doubt that he should be a part of this team. Tonight was MS classic. He calculates the game so well. He takes the game till the end when only he knows what’s going on in his mind, and he backs himself to hit those big shots at the end,” Kohli said at the post-match presentation ceremony.
Meanwhile, Kohli could not take his team home this time but Dhoni and Dinesh Karthik (25 off 14) rose to the occasion with an unbeaten 57-run stand, helping India chase down a target of 299 with four balls to spare.
