Williams to Kohli, SIX runs, speechless! And that's his highest T20I score as well. India win, and he pumps his fists in delight. But what a classy way to end the match. Full, outside off, and he checks a glorious drive over long off to hit the final nail in the coffin. Proceeds to remove his helmet, stands in the middle of the pitch, and then raises his arms so that the crowd can enjoy the moment too. India win by six wickets

Williams to Kohli, SIX runs, magnifique! Full, outside off, and he goes inside-out over cover for six! Kohli is pumped. Mutters something to himself before punching his own bat in aggression. Team 200 too
17.2
6
Pollard to Kohli, SIX runs, creamed! Full, angling in, and whipped with beautiful wrists over deep midwicket. Gives the bowler a stare too...
15.5
6
Williams to Pant, SIX runs, slower ball, very wide outside off, and hammered past the long-off fielder! Enough power to clear the boundary
15.3
6
Williams to Kohli, SIX runs, oye, hoye, hoye! Full, in the slot, and he breaks his wrists to whip this beautifully over wide long on. The crowd goes ballistic
15.2

Williams to Kohli, FOUR runs, Kesrick takes cover! And he gives Kohli the stare after getting hit for four. Full on off, and Kohli drills a flat shot straight over the bowler to the long-on boundary
14.2

Holder to Kohli, FOUR runs, flayed over short third man! Back of a length, outside off, and Kohli opens the bat's face before playing a cut over the infield
14.1
6
Holder to Kohli, SIX runs, what. a. shot! Full, in the slot outside off, and he simply checks a lofted shot into the second tier! Long off a mere spectator this time. Fifty for VK
13.6
6
Pierre to Pant, SIX runs, what a way to start the innings! Full, on middle, and he hammers a slog sweep over wide long on. Ruins an otherwise excellent over
13.2
6
Pierre to Rahul, SIX runs, slower through the air. Full on off, and Rahul gets down on one knee before absolutely creaming a slog sweep over cow corner
12.6
6
Williams to Rahul, SIX runs, Ridiculous! Rahul backs away, exposing all three stumps, but the bowler follows him. Simply swivels and deposits a six beyond deep midwicket
11.5
4
Holder to Kohli, FOUR runs, waist-high full toss, angling into his body, and whipped past the fielder running at deep backward square leg. Kohli is not happy that the umpire has called it a legal ball. The square umpire is Mr Menon, and Kohli suggests that he played it from near his chest, but the reality is that he played the shot way in front of his body. A fifty-fifty call
11.4
6
Holder to Kohli, SIX runs, top edged over fine leg! Short ball on off, and he swivels with a fast bat swing. Gets enough to clear the fielder on the boundary line. Team hundred too
10.3
4
Walsh to Kohli, FOUR runs, nearly chopped on! Back of a length, outside off, and he makes room before trying to pull. Ball stays low, takes an under-edge and whizzes past the leg stump for four. So unlucky!
9.2
4
Williams to Rahul, FOUR runs, powerfully cut and this time beats point. Not that wide of off, but his forearms cum into play with a strong slash that fetches him a boundary
7.5
4
Pierre to Kohli, FOUR runs, that's all brute force and no timing - very unlike Kohli - but he'll get a boundary. Gave himself room and slapped it off the toe end over extra cover
6.6
4
Walsh to Rahul, FOUR runs, deftly done. This was fuller outside off and he used the pace to just open the bat face and steer it very fine
6.2
4
Walsh to Kohli, FOUR runs, fuller and Kohli goes hard and straight, clearing his front leg and sending it bullet straight back past the bowler
5.2
6
Pierre to Rahul, SIX runs, slog slept into oblivion. Too full, in the slot, Rahul goes down on one knee and picks it up from leg stump to smash it
4.6
6
Cottrell to Rahul, SIX runs, top edge goes for six. Another short ball, but Rahul is mostly in control of this shot, places it very fine. Doesn't get it off the middle, but has enough on it to carry all the way
2.6
4
Cottrell to Sharma, FOUR runs, delicate by Rohit. Cottrell went for the bluff, bowling length outside off after a series of short ones had troubled the batsmen, but Rohit was alert to it and late cuts it very fine. Top shot
1.4
4
Holder to Rahul, FOUR runs, this is regal. Rahul at his best, stays beside the ball, has the room and the width to cut it, and does so with authority
1.3
4
Holder to Rahul, FOUR runs, bottom edge goes to fine leg. Not short enough to pull but he goes for it anyway, and gets a bottom edge that goes past the stumps and too fine for any fielder to stop
1.1
4
Holder to Rahul, FOUR runs, terrific timing Bit of width outside off and slightly short of length but Rahul gets into position so nicely and quickly, he's able to execute a rasping cut shot that races through point
