Virat Kohli was in full flow during another match-winning knock at his favourite ground outside India. He likes batting in Adelaide and has accumulated a lot of runs across formats on this ground. In the most recent game against Bangladesh, he came up with another extraordinary effort after losing Rohit Sharma early in the innings.
The veteran remained unbeaten on 64 and guided the Men in Blue to 184/6 in 20 overs. The match went to the wire as Litton Das slammed the Indian bowlers to all parts of the ground. However, a rain interval and run out of Das brought the Indians back into the game, and they sealed it by 5 runs.
The 33-year-old was named the Man of the Match for his effort and surpassed great Sachin Tendulkar in terms of most runs by an Indian in a country outside the home. Kohli has accumulated 3350 runs in Australia, fifty more than Sachin in the same region.
