Rahul set the tone for India’s innings with some breathtaking shots right from the beginning. He was still going at a run-a-ball but things changed when he hit two sixes and a four off Shoriful Islam in the ninth over of the innings.
Rahul reached his fifty after playing 31 deliveries but he got dismissed immediately as he was caught out by Mustafizur Rahman off Shakib Al hasan.
Kohli also carried his rich vein of form forward. He became the highest run-scorer in the history of the T20 World Cup when he took his 16th run in this innings and also went on to play yet another magnificent knock of an unbeaten 64 from 44 balls, his third fifty of this tournament.
Suryakumar Yadav also looked in great touch once again but his innings was cut short on 30 from just 16 deliveries. India did encounter some hiccups as they lost the wickets of Dinesh Karthik and Axar Patel in quick succession but Ravichandran Ashwin played an excellent cameo of 13* from just six deliveries to help India to a commanding total of 184/6.
