Team India has put up an exceptional performance against their arch-rivals Pakistan in the crucial Super Four encounter. They literally annihilated the opponents and it looked like only one team was playing the match right through the day. While the bowlers were clinical as usual, the target was gunned down with utter ease by India thanks to the tons from Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma. However, the victory was so special that it didn’t stop their regular skipper Virat Kohli from relishing as well.
Kohli has been rested for the Asia Cup and seems to have enjoyed the match to the hilt. He was understandably thrilled after India’s nine-wicket win over Pakistan. India chased down the target of 238 runs in the 40th over and there was no fuss made about it by the openers just like Kohli does whenever he bats in the limited overs format.
India’s all-format captain took to his official Twitter handle after the thumping victory and hailed Rohit and Co for their brilliant show. “Well done boys. What a joy to watch.Great win for us. Onwards and upwards #INDvPAK #AsiaCup2018,” his tweet read.
Will India lift the title?
The way Team India is playing currently, it looks like that they are the firm favourites to win the Asia Cup title now. Pakistan were touted to win it when the tournament started but it seems that they have lost the gas after facing India in their designated home United Arab Emirates. They were unbeaten in ODIs since 2016 in the UAE and have lost twice against their arch-rivals.
India have qualified for the finals now and they still have a game against Afghanistan to play on Wednesday. Kohli must be hoping for them to win the famed tournament now and it will be interesting to see who meets them in the title clash of the tournament.
