After played a match-winning knock of 53-ball 82 not out against Pakistan, Virat Kohli carried his good form against the Netherlands on Thursday. He notched fifty off 37 balls, with the help of three fours and one six on a day both openers failed to match the aggression they must have set out for against the minnows.

Just a ball before Kohli reached his second successive fifty at the ongoing T20 World Cup, Virat Kohli played an incredible shot against Fred Klaassen in the 17th over of India’s innings. It was a fullish delivery outside off stump from Klassen bowling round the wicket.

Kohli used the angle with perfection and bent his back leg to carve the ball over deep extra cover for a six. Despite smacking two outstanding sixes against Haris Rauf in the last encounter, Kohli could not believe what he had just done against Klaassen, and his expression caught on the replays said it all.
