As I said stuff of dreams, Anushka was sitting right there – Virat Kohli
India National Cricket Team batting maestro Virat Kohli talked about his celebration during the mid-innings break. He said:
“As I said stuff of dreams. Anushka was sitting right there, and Sachin paaji was here too. Difficult to explain this. If I could paint a perfect picture I would want this to be the picture. My life partner, the person I love the most is sitting there, my hero is sitting there and I was able to get the 50th (ODI hundred) in front of all of them and all these stands in Wankhede as well, such a history venue so it was amazing.”
Virat Kohli further passed his assessment of India’s innings. He credited Shreyas Iyer, Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill, and KL Rahul for helping the side post 397/4 on the board. Kohli elaborated:
“(Assessing the team’s innings) In a big game you are happy with anything over 330-340. To get close to 400 is amazing. Lot of credit has to go to Shreyas the way he came and batted freely.. Shubman and Rohit at the top, KL finishing with the flurry… I think everyone did their roles to perfection and did the job beautifully for the team. A perfect batting performance but just one half of the game is done. Still got to go out there and be professional with the ball and do the things we have done in the tournament so far.”
