The final match in the Group 2 of the ICC T20 World Cup 2016 was a virtual quarter-final, as the winner would progress into the semi-final. India beat Australia by 6 wickets, with Kohli smashing a superlative 82 not out off 51 balls with 9 boundaries and 2 sixes to help India win a memorable game against Australia. <strong><a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/cricket-scores/ICC-T20-World-Cup-2016/Live-Score-31st-T20-Match-Super-10-Group-2/India-Vs-Australia/summary/15800" target="_blank">FULL CRICKET SCORECARD: India vs Australia, Super 10 Group 2, Match 31 at Mohali</a></strong> <p></p> <p></p> Bangladesh did us no favours in the game against India, and then (Australia s) game against India I thought Virat Kohli was incredible. To bat the way he did and get his team over the line in a pressure game in India, he played beautifully, Smith told <em>Fox Sports News</em> in an interview. <strong>ALSO READ: <a title="Virat Kohli masterpiece takes India to semi-final of ICC T20 World Cup 2016 as hosts beat Australia by 6 wickets" href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/virat-kohli-masterpiece-takes-india-to-semi-final-of-icc-t20-world-cup-2016-as-hosts-beat-australia-by-6-wickets-423743">Virat Kohli masterpiece takes India to semi-final of ICC T20 World Cup 2016 as hosts beat Australia by 6 wickets</a></strong> <p></p> <p></p>Smith said it was disappointing to see the way Australia played in the T20 World Cup 2015. He said, It was disappointing. I thought we had the team to give that tournament a real shake. Our first game against New Zealand, we let ourselves down there we should have chased down 140 in that game. From there I guess you were sort of chasing your tail and had to win every other game. <p></p> <p></p> It didn t work out the way we would have liked but I think we can still learn a lot from the way we played over there, the Australian captain added. <p></p> <p></p>Smith, who is currently enjoying a rest period ahead of a busy season which has the tour of Sri Lanka as well as a triangular series in West Indies with South Africa being the third team, welcomes the rest period. <p></p> <p></p> I ve always said that I want to be 100 per cent right as much as I can to play for Australia and it (the wrist soreness) was an opportunity to give it a rest and it s feeling really good, Smith said.
