Chasing a target of 160 runs in this match, India lost 4 wickets for 33 runs at one time. Rohit Sharma (4), KL Rahul (4) and Suryakumar Yadav (15) and Axar Patel (2) were dismissed after scoring runs. After this, it seemed impossible for India to win this match.

No words to express happiness: Kohli
After the match, Kohli said, ‘I have no words to describe this victory. I don’t know how it happened. I don’t understand what to say. Hardik was sure that if we stay till the end, we can do it. Haris was the most important bowler of Pakistan. So I took a chance against him and hit two sixes. Till now the innings played against Australia in Mohali was the best innings of my career. But, after today I’ll put it up. The fans have always supported me and I am thankful to them for this.
