Kohli replies to Amitabh Bachchan’s tweet on notebook celebration
India skipper Virat Kohli was the star performer for the team during the first T20I match against West Indies at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad last night. He received plenty of plaudits for helping India ace the run-chase with 8 balls to spare and the hosts took a 1-0 lead in the three-match T20I series.
Virat Kohli failed to get going, especially for the first 20 balls. However, after going through a rusty challenge, he was back to his usual best in the build-up team’s run-chase of 208. Kohli and KL Rahul stitched together a crucial 100-run stand for the second wicket, in what was important for India to set the foundation.
Once Rahul was dismissed in the 14th over after scoring a well-made 40-ball-62 with the help of 5 fours and 4 sixes, Kohli carried the responsibility on his shoulders and dictated tempo in the game as he went on to score a blistering 94 off just 50 balls, which is his career-best knock in the truncated version of the game.
Besides hitting six fours and six maximums, Kohli performed a Notebook celebration after a sensational flick off West Indies pacer Kesrick Williams.
Meanwhile, Legendary actor Amitabh Bachchan was among the many who tweeted for Indian captain Kohli with respect to his top celebration yesterday. Bachchan quoted dialogue from Manmohan Desai’s ‘Amar Akbar Anthony’ (1977 classic).
“I have told you many times that you shouldn’t tease Virat but you never listen to me. Now he has written it on a paper and handed it over to you. Look at the face of the West Indian team. Kohli hit them really hard,” read Bachchan’s tweet when translated in English.
