On Friday night, Virat Kohli took the charge for the ‘Men in Blue and played a captain’s knock of 94 not out off 50 balls laced with 6 maximums and as many as boundaries. With his sensational knock, Kohli guided India to chase down the tough target against the Windies at the expense of 4 wickets to take a 1-0 lead in the 3-match series.
However, the right-hander missed out on his maiden T20I hundred, but his batting masterclass in Hyderabad garnered praise from all quarters.
