After a match-winning knock of an unbeaten 82 off 51 balls against Australia in ICC World T20 2016, ace India batsman Virat Kohli celebrated along with other teammates over a bottle of champagne. The team, post the nail-biting match on Sunday evening at Mohali, reached the hotel and indulged themselves in celebrations for reaching the semi-final of the tournament. Teammates Rohit Sharma, Yuvraj Singh and Harbhajan Singh joined Kohli as he cut a cake and showered the others with champagne.

India were put to chase 160 put up by the Aussies, courtesy a cracking start by their openers Usman Khawaja and Aaron Finch who took the team score to 50 within the initial 4 overs. The bowlers made a comeback but couldn’t restrict the opponents within 150. Indian openers started the chase well but departed quickly while it was Kohli who stood there like a rock and took India to the much wanted victory. Skipper MS Dhoni as usual did very well behind the stumps while provided the Test vice-captain the support he needed. India faced a blow as they will miss experienced Yuvraj Singh who got injured during the match. Manish Pandey has been called in as back-up as India take on West Indies in the second semi-final at Wakhede Stadium, Mumbai on Thursday.
