Legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar has extended his gratitude to Indian batting mainstay Virat Kohli for his match-winning knock during his side’s six-wicket win over fierce-rival Pakistan in their World T20 clash at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata.
Kohli paid his respect to Tendulkar as he bowed down to the master blaster after reaching his half century.
“Great Win Team India. Thank you for the innings and gesture @imVkohli! #IndvsPak,” Tendulkar wrote on Twitter.
Pleased with the affection provided by the Men in Blue, the global cricket icon tweeted, “Team India returning to the dressing room after the game, waved to me. Felt like I never left the team...#IndvsPak.”
Kohli, who was also declared
man of the match, smashed seven boundaries and a six in his blistering unbeaten knock of 55 runs off 37 balls.
India registered their 11th overall win against the arch-rival in the World T20s and the World Cups.
With the win, India have gained two points in the Group B table, but are still lacking behind Pakistan in terms of run rate.
India will next face Bangladesh at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru on Wednesday.
