Post Match Presentation:
Misbah Ul Haq:
“Excellent innings by Kohli. Credit goes to their batsmen, it’s easy out there under lights, 329 is still a good score. The best innings (Kohli) I have ever seen.”
“They batted brilliantly, we used 8 bowlers. Sachin and Virat batted brilliantly, Rohit can be a good finisher. Kohli was brilliant. Once you cross 300 it’s difficult irrespective of how flat the pitch is, we did it in Hobart. We’ve got the talent in the bowling departmet also. It’s about how you handle pressure, they will learn from games like these.”
Kohli picks up his award from Akshay Kumar(MOM):
“I still can’t believe what happened out there honestly. I’m really satisfied. We were waiting for these 3-4 overs of 15-20 runs. I’m a fan of Rohit Sharma, love watching him bat. I would rate this knock and Hobart equally. To be able to chase 330 against this bowling is satisfying.”
So here’s the equation. Pakistan are through to the final. India are on eight points but not there yet. They will wait on the result of the next game. A win for Bangladesh, with or without a bonus point, means that they are through, so India get knocked out. Therefore, Bangladesh need nothing less than a win. Sri Lanka are out so they will play for pride.
