ICC World Twenty20: Who said what about 'genius' Virat Kohli's Mohali masterclass
Virat's innings included nine fours and two sixes.
New Delhi: Virat Kohli was the toast of town yet again after he played one of the most memorable knocks in cricket history on Sunday.
India's vice-captain scored an unbeaten 82 off 51 balls at a strike rate of 160.78 to guide his team home to a six wicket win.
Thanks to Kohli's masterclass at Mohali, the Men in Blue advanced to the semi-final where they will face the West Indies.
The 27-year-old's 78-minute stay at the crease produced some breathtaking shots culminating in what many believe was the perfect run chase.
Cricketers, past and present, were unanimous in their verdict, terming Kohli as a genius.
Here are some of the best reactions to Virat's Super Sunday specil.

Take this from me @imVkohli is different league. That run chase was nowhere after 16 overs. Took it on and bossed it. England India final ?
