Virat Kohli’s 183 against Pakistan in Asia Cup
Video showing Virat Kohli's innings of 183 off 148 balls on Sunday against Pakistan at Mirpur, Dhaka.
23-year-old Kohli led the team to another 300 plus run chase within a span of three weeks. The Delhi boy hit an unbeaten 133 as India had achieved a target of 321 making a mockery of Sri Lankan bowlers in 36.4 overs, February 28, in Hobart during the tri-series in Australia.
Against the arch-rivals here Sunday, Kohli, who struck his second century of the tournament and 11th of his ODI career, was in his elements and was duly adjudged as the Man of the Match.
Chasing a mammoth target, India made the worst possible start losing opening batsman Gautam Gambhir without any run on board in the second ball of the innings, trapped lbw by offie Mohammed Hafeez.
Kohli and Tendulkar then brought back the Indian innings on track with their 133-run stand for the second wicket. They scored briskly and always kept India ahead of the asking run rate.
