Speaking to Rameez Raja after the match, Kohli said, “I enjoy the crowd being against me, it pumps me up, the more they boo me the more it motivates me.”

The former Pakistani cricketer went on to ask him on what he advised the youngsters ahead of the tense finals, to which Kohli replied, “Well I am still a youngster, I am not even 28, what advice shall I give to other youngsters?” Rameez interrupted, “Yes a master at the age of 28.”

Truly, a master, Kohli finished another successful tournament, notching up 153 runs at 76.50.
