Indian skipper Virat Kohli struck an imperious knock to lead his team to a six-wicket win over West Indies in a tight contest. Kohli smashed an unbeaten 94 off just 50 balls that helped India chase down the steep 208-run target with eight balls to spare.
While Kohli’s pyrotechnics with the bat caught everyone’s attention, his “notebook” send-off to West Indie pacer Kesrick Williams hogged the limelight.
The star batter copied the Chadwick Walton’s famous CPL send-off to Williams to imitate the signature celebration, which he later claimed was a form of revenge.
"It's not the CPL (about Williams' celebration), it happened to me in Jamaica when he got me out. So I thought I'll tick a few in the notebook as well, but all good. There were a few words, but smiles at the end. That's what you want to see. Good competitive cricket but in the end shake hands and give a hi-fi. That's what cricket is all about. Play it hard but have respect for opponents," Kohli said.
