In the reaction of Kohli’s match-winning knock, legendary actor Amitabh Bachchan recreates a famous dialogue of his movie ‘Amar Akbar Anthony’. Amitabh wrote on his Twitter handle, T 3570 – यार कितनी बार बोला मई तेरे को .. की Virat को मत छेड़ , मत छेड़ , मत छेड़ … पन सुनताइच किधर है तुम … अभी पर्ची लिख के दे दिया ना हाथ में !!!! देख देख ..

Translation of Bachchan’s tweet is, “Man how many times have I told you, do not tease Virat. But, you don’t listen to me. Now he wrote a slip and gave it in their hand !!!! See see .. look at West Indies’ face; he killed it, he killed it !!” Virat Kohli replied to the legendary actor’s praiseful tweet. Kohli wrote, “Haha love the dialogue Sir. You’re always an inspiration.”

However, India didn’t have smooth progress to the win in the series opener. Their bowling was not up to the mark as they conceded 15 sixes during the innings and also they were not helped by the fielders as they dropped some catches. Although, during the chase, Virat Kohli and KL Rahul’s 100-run partnership put India to a strong position. At the end, Virat Kohli accelerated the innings and India succeeded to win the match with 8 balls to spare.
