Virat Kohli has returned to form, however, he had a couple of cheap outings against Australia - managing scores of 2 and 11.
The KING roared back and smashed a match-winning half-century in the third and series-deciding T20I, in Hyderabad. Kohli, scored 63 runs off 48 balls with the help of 3 fours and 4 sixes during India's chase of 187 after the early dismissal of KL Rahul.
With his entertaining and crucially, match-winning, half-century, Kohli has shut any more detractors and trollers. This, for Dale Steyn, is further a warning to other teams ahead of the T20 World Cup.
“Someone’s hitting some form just before the WC,” tweeted Steyn, who is a former RCB teammate of Kohli’s. Suryakumar Yadav, Virat Kohli fifties steal the show in Hyderabad

Virat Kohli said: "That's why I'm batting at 3, I have to utilise my experience and give the team what the team wants. I got off to a good start then I had to take down Zampa because he's an important bowler through the middle. When Surya started hitting it like that, I kinda looked at the dug-out as well. Rohit and Rahul bhai both told me, 'you can just keep batting on' because Surya was striking it that well. It was just about building a partnership. I just used my experience a little bit
Suryakumar Yadav said: “In that situation I thought let me take my chance. I had two three shots in mind but I tried to hit over mid-off only. My mindset is pretty clear. Loving it at No. 4. There will be tough challenge but you got to express yourself and been a little smart as well.”
