Details about the match
In the penultimate over against Haris Rauf, Kohli smashed consecutive sixes, bringing India within 15 runs of winning with six balls remaining. Nawaz caught Pandya in close with a mistimed slog while Kohli was an off-strike to end their 113-run partnership.
The wheels came off for Nawaz, who then delivered a wide, and Kohli reclaimed the strike and smacked a six off a no-ball. The following ball banged off the stumps for three byes before Kohli was bowled off the free hit. Nawaz had Dinesh Karthik stumped with two balls remaining and two runs needed, but he bowled a wide on what would have been the final ball of the over. Ashwin finished the game calmly to secure the victory, throwing Indian supporters into a frenzy.
Virat Kohli was carried on the shoulders of Rohit Sharma as he went to the ground to celebrate India’s victory. After their 5-wicket triumph on Sunday in Melbourne, the former skipper was in tears and had a hard time controlling his emotions.
