Virat Kohli led team India registered a thumping 2-0 win after winning the second T20I match against Australia. Riding on the brilliant counter-attacking knock by Hardik Pandya, team India was able to notch up their 10th consecutive T20I win. Team India needed 14 runs off the final over and Hardik Pandya finished the game off in style with two back to back sixes. He played an unbeaten 42-run knock.
Apart from Hardik Pandya, the batting line-up of team India made the Australians taste the ‘IPL flavor’ as they smashed the Australian bowlers to the cleaners.
Talking about the Indian skipper, Virat Kohli played a stunning 40-run knock. However, it was an AB de Villiers-Esque shot pulled off by Virat Kohli that stole all the attention. It happened on the 15th over of the game when Virat smashed Andrew Tye as he played an unorthodox shot for a six. That shot left everyone stunned including the commentator on-air.
