Twitter Reactions: Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni lead India to series-levelling win over Australia in Adelaide

Posted On / /

It was like back to 2015, when Virat Kohli scored an anchoring hundred in a steep chase and MS Dhoni played the perfect finisher role by winning the match with his trademark six-hitting style in the final over.

Captain Kohli could not take his team to the finishing line but Dhoni (55 off 54) and Dinesh Karthik (25 off 14) rose to the occasion with an unbeaten 57-run stand off 34 balls, taking India home with four balls to spare. Australia scored 298-8 after opting to bat.

‘Man of the match’ Kohli was dismissed in the 44th over after making 104 off 112 balls with five fours and two sixes.

Dhoni, who has been coping a lot of criticism for his waning finishing skills, turned back the clock and took India to the finish line with a six on the first ball of the final over.

The veteran’s innings, laced with two sixes as the only boundaries, finished things off in style for India.

With the win in Adelaide, India has levelled the three-match series 1-1 with the decider to be played on Friday in Melbourne.
