After the match, Kohli also appreciated his performance. He said, “We pretty much pulled things back towards the end. Close to 200 is a winnable score for me. It’s upon the bowlers to execute. I felt great.”
Gayle also reacted to Kohli’s performance. He said, “Never doubt Virat Kohli. Kohli has put his team in a winning position. Fantastic innings by him and he has passed the Universe Boss. I am coming back out of retirement and I will see you next year, Virat.” The Indian star player is also one of the top three batsmen to hit 2 back-to-back hundreds in the tournament.
During the match on Sunday, Kohli’s wife Anushka Sharma blew some flying kisses from the stands. Hardik Pandya, the captain of GT, also hugged Kohli for his great performance.
