🇮🇳-🇦🇺 T20: Kohli Powers 🇮🇳 to 188

IND 188-3 (20)

After Shane Watson appeared to check 🇮🇳's quick start💨 by sending back both openers in the same over😯, Virat Kohli(90*)'s master class👌 helped 🇮🇳 set a target of 189 runs in front of Australia. Kohli, in the company of a rusty Raina(41)😕, was at his majestic best😍, carting the Aussie bowlers all over the park👏. He took advantage of the short square boundaries in Adelaide, harnessing the pace of Tait & co👍. There was a moment of controversy😳 when Raina pulled out of a Faulkner delivery after he was into his delivery stride. He was bowled but the Australians did not appeal🙌. Eventually the 134 run partnership between Kohli & Raina ened when Faulkner bowled him in the final over before Dhoni provided flourish💥 with a 3 ball 11. During his innings, Raina became the second 🇮🇳 batsman to go past 1000 T20I runs, the first being Virat Kohli.
