ICC Champions trophy : Virat Kohli says didn't expect to beat Bangladesh by 9 wickets
Virat Kohli was surprised over huge win against Bangladesh. India decimated them by nine wickets to book a final berth against arch-rivals Pakistan in the ICC Champions Trophy."India won the toss and elected to field in overcast conditions. Bhuvneshwar Kumar struck early to send Soumya Sarkar. Tamim Iqbal and Mushfiqur Rahim then made gutsy half-centuries to add 123 but the lower-order failed to take off in the final 10 overs as Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar restricted the Tigers to 264/7. In response, Shikhar Dhawan (46), Rohit Sharma (123 not out) and Kohli (96 not out) took the defending champions home in the 41st over. Honestly, we never expected to win by nine wickets but that is quality that we have at the top of the order. Both the guys at the top gave us a great start. It allowed me to play my natural game. With the ball, we never let them away for anything. The two quick wickets stopped their momentum," he said at the post-match presentation ceremony.
