Nevertheless, Kohli’s strategy didn’t work as the middle-order batter kept scoring runs. The 29-year-old scored a neat knock of 79 off 43, not out.

Suryakumar Yadav, in an informal chatter with actor, television, and cricket presenter Gaurav Kapur on his popular YouTube show ‘Breakfast with Champions,’ said: “That’s his style. His energy level on the ground is always different. And that game was extremely important for both teams so Virat’s sledging was on another level in that match. I was focus on myself, like ‘boss, you cannot lose focus and have to win the match at any cost’. The ball went to him and he made that action from there and it was very instinctive.”
