“I have no idea how that happened, I am lost for words,” said Kohli after scripting India’s epic win that many are calling ‘one of the greatest wins’.
Pakistan recovered from a wobbly start to post a fighting 159 for eight. India completed the chase in the last ball, with Kohli and Hardik Pandya (40) doing the bulk of the scoring after a horror start to their innings.
Joining the millions of fans tuning in to watch the epic match live were a number of Bollywood stars who took to their social media handles to celebrate the big victory. Everyone from Varun Dhawan to Kartik Aaryan, Abhishek Bachchan to Farhan Akhtar took to their handles to hail ‘King Kohli’ for the epic win.
Varun shared a video of himself reacting to the big win with a post that read, “Unbelievable india wins happy Diwali. Well played Pakistan. One of the best matches. King @virat.kohli.”
Richa Chadha also took to her handle to tweet, “King @imVkohli is a champ! Nothing no one can ever say or do will take that away. Legit legend. He decides when the game is over. And he’s NOT OUT Class act ! hat tip sir Rahul Dravid Karthik, Ashwin, Hardik.”
