The star batter Virat Kohli played a sensational knock of 82* off just 53 balls in Melbourne during the last T20I encounter between the two teams. Kohli’s heroics helped India beat Pakistan by four wickets but the latter finished the tournament as runner-up while India got knocked out by eventual champions England in the semifinal.
