Tendulkar highlighted Kohli’s continued love affair with the Adelaide Oval, where he struck his 39th ODI ton to guide the side to the victory. Tendulkar’s former opening partner Virender Sehwag said the middle order needs to play a few more match-winning knocks ahead of the ICC World Cup 2019 in England and Wales.
“A great win and a fabulous innings by @imVkohli. Yet another at his adopted home ground. Excellent role played by @msdhoni and @DineshKarthik to take India over the line,” Sachin said in a tweet on Tuesday.
Kohli, who scored a defiant 104 was engaged in an 82-run fourth wicket stand with Dhoni, whose unbeaten 54-ball 55 eventually guided India over the line with four balls to spare.
Picture abhi baaki hai mere Dost ! Wonderful innings from Virat. Dhoni and Karthik finishing it in style. Will need more matches with 4-5-6 playing handy match-winning knocks. pic.twitter.com/YHdwJ0G59X
Sehwag, in his trademark style tweeted: “Picture abhi baaki hai mere Dost! Wonderful innings from Virat. Dhoni and Karthik finishing it in style. Will need more matches with 4-5-6 playing handy match-winning knocks.”
“Fantastic run chase by India. Excellent 100 from Virat, he makes it look very easy. Was wonderful to see Dhoni finish of the game beautifully and Dinesh Karthik’s cameo was very, very important in the end. The final game should be a cracker,” Laxman said.
Excellent reading of the game today by Dhoni. Karthik in the end made it easy for him but it was yet another Masterclass by Kohli that made the difference .
