Virat’s knock in Mohali in the #T20WorldCup against Australia was probably one of the finest I have seen and this one was probably a notch higher because of the big ground & India being 31-4. Class is always permanent and an outstanding win for Team India in a thriller #IndvsPak pic.twitter.com/HsJ5R0Caqu

However, it wasn’t just ex-Indian athletes who expressed their gratitude for Kohli’s innings; numerous previous opponents on the field and current international greats did as well.
– What a Game of cricket we've just witnessed & this guy Virat Kohli is absolutely a Beast!!
You can not compare his class to any other player in the world in white ball cricket. He can anchor, he rotates the strike, he can hit sixes and he knows how to finish the Game! pic.twitter.com/Ed349p0840

The game of nerves today but we had it on our side by 95% and then @imVkohli showed what a world class match winning innings looks like. Well played by both teams, great match! #PakVsInd
