Kohli was the main architect of India’s highest ever chase in an ODI. He walked in after India were off too a disastrous start having lost Gambhir to the second ball of innings, lbw to Hafeez. Together with Sachin Tendulkar, he managed to keep the run rate in check as India blazed to 100 in the 16th over.
With India galloping at that stage, Saeed Ajmal produced a delivery as spectacular as Tendulkar’s batsmanship to undo him. Rohit Sharma walked in with India moderately placed at 133 for 2.
