When Virat Kohli's magic even left Premier League football superstars spellbound!

New Delhi: Virat Kohli's breathtaking batting on Sunday in Mohali not just impressed the cricket world but also found appreciation in Premier League football circles.

The Delhi batter stroked a masterful 82-run knock to power India to the semi-final of the ICC World Twenty20.

Under immense pressure for most part of the run chase, Kohli held his nerve to bat right through the innings.

The 27-year-old's knock was so special, it even made Tottenham Hotspur and England star Harry Kane sit up and take note.

The forward took to social micro-blogging site Twitter to applaud the right-hander's effort in a tough situation.

Former Liverpool midfielder Dietmar Hamann on the other hand knew exactly what he had missed thanks to the scale of the buzz on social media networks.
