India vs England: Ranveer Singh Leads Cheers as Virat Kohli's 77 Floors Twitterati

Virat Kohli’s return to form continued with another masterful performance on Tuesday in the third T20I against England at the Narendra Modi Stadium. Kohli, who began slowly, finished with a flurry as India recovered from 24/3 to finish with 156/6 from their quota of 20 overs.

Although Kohli’s knock went in vain as England roared to victory with an equally impressive innings from Jos Buttler (83* off 52 balls), but the way the skippermanaged his innings and the shots he played, wowed everyone.

The 30-year-old smashed eight fours and four sixes and finished with a strike-rate of 167.39, as India managed to recover from the poor start where they lost three wickets in the first 5.2 overs. Kohli at first built the innings along with Rishabh Pant and was batting on 28 off 29 balls at one point. But, once the latter departedm courtesy of poor running between the wickets, the Indian captain took off and played some delightful shots to score his 27th T20I fifty. In the last 17 balls he faced, he smacked 49 runs, hitting five fours and four sixes.

And, his hitting drew some great words and entertained fans, experts and celebrities alike.

“Chiku on Fire!!!! @imVkohli let’s gooooo,” tweeted an excited Ranveer Singh.

“Master class from @imVkohli #INDvENG,” VVS Laxman wrote on Twitter.

Former India opener Wasim Jaffer also had some advice for the youngsters watching Kohli bat.

Kohli, after back to back ducks and hoards of criticism, has now scored back to back half-centuries and will once again be India’s main man going into the two remaining T20Is which India have to win to take the five-match series home.

The next T20I will be played on March 18 at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad with no audience in attendance.
