Goes back and nudges it off the pad to square fine leg for the winning single.
India beat Pakistan by 8 wickets with 18 balls to spare. With this Pakistan are yet to win a match against India in World T20!
As expected Virat Kohli is the Man of the Match and has this to say:"The key is to stay calm. In the previous match, I was thinking too much. Today, I was more relaxed. I went out and played my natural game and it worked. I have worked hard on my game. As long as I play 10-15 overs, it helps the team. It is a slow pitch but plays better under lights with the ball coming onto the bat.Playing Pakistan is a high-pressure game and I hope to continue my form."
A delighted MS Dhoni, the winning Captain of India says: "The team responded well. The players looked relax. After a loose couple of overs, Irfan and Zaheer bowled well. The part-timers also contributed. Balaji was great. Kohli has been consistent in all formats and it is good that he is taking the responsibility. He looks to score runs every time and Sehwag batted well after the loss of Gambhir. Sehwag can accumulate runs quickly against the spinners once he settles in. We were not thinking ahead and we had a nice warm-up session. The support was good for both the sides. In the first over, Sehwag told me that it is nice to play in front of a big crowd. At the end of the day, it feels nice to play in front of a full crowd."
Mohammad Hafeez, the losing Pakistan Captain says: "We could not set a good total. We lost wickets at regular intervals. The batsmen could not settle in and we could not build partnerships. India played well and Virat Kohli batted very well. It was a difficult track to bat on and his innings put India on track. We wanted to win the game and we wanted to put pressure but it did not materialize. We have to improve our fielding. It is a must win game for us against Australia and we will come back positively."
