20SIXPandya to Nevill, SIX, is this a defining moment in the match? Nevill has scored 10 runs off 2 balls and both batsmen rush back with a big smile on their faces. Surely, Australia have taken the momentum with them at the halfway stage. What was turning out to be a good over has been spoilt by the last two deliveries. So often these quick runs at the very end turn out to be the difference in a game. I am sure this is not what Nehra told Pandya to do. Bowls a juicy full delivery on the leg stump and Nevill clears his front leg before muscling it over mid-wicket. Australia get that psychological edge of posting 160 when they looked like getting 155 initially160/6
19.5FOURPandya to Nevill, FOUR, cheeky from Nevill and it works for Australia. Pandya bangs the slower delivery short, Nevill moves across and tries to scoop, not from the middle of the bat but well wide of short fine leg154/6
19.3FOURPandya to Watson, FOUR, lucky boundary for Australia and that will hurt Pandya. Interestingly, this full delivery swung away slightly from the batsman, Watson backed away and wanted to crash it hard, got a thick edge that ran away through the vacant third man region149/6
19.1OUTPandya to Faulkner, out Caught by Kohli!! Faulkner loves Mohali and turn the clock back to 2013 if you can't get me, but this time it's not sailing out of the park. Kohli settles under it at long-on and takes a simple catch. Good start to the final over for India. Can't give much credit to Pandya though as this length ball right in the slot to be put away, just that Faulkner completely mistimed the shot. Faulkner c Kohli b Pandya 10(10) [4s-1]145/6
18.1FOURBumrah to Faulkner, FOUR, ohh! The commentator's curse! I said no boundaries in 12 balls and Bumrah bowls a bad ball. Can't bowl short with no one at third man, he opted for the slower delivery as well, Faulkner had enough time after taking a step towards the bowler, just guided that past backward point140/5
16.3OUTBumrah to Maxwell, out Bowled!! Bumrah smiles and Dhoni claps. Excellent delivery from the youngster. India have got the dangerous looking Maxwell. He was threatening to go big. Oh they are checking for the no-ball once again. That's close, but Bumrah had just enough behind the line. Lovely slower delivery, not picked by Maxwell. He swung early as he tried to slog, missed and the ball just kissed the outside of off stump to ignite the bails. Maxwell b Bumrah 31(28) [4s-1 6s-1]130/5

19.1FOURFaulkner to Dhoni, FOUR, India win! And they are through to the semis. Kohli is a bit emotional as he sinks to his knees and laps it all up. How many times has Dhoni done it for India - hit the winning run for his side that is. Low full toss outside off, Dhoni swings across the line, the bottom hand comes off but he has found the gap at wide long-on. The ball runs away to the fence and the celebrations begin. As soon as the ball went to the fence, Kohli was on his knees and flung the gloves away. Then rises to his feet and pumps his fist, before pointing to the sky - is he thanking his late father? Could well be. MS is as cool as ever, just hugs his partner. Ravi Shaz is a pumped up man, a ferocious fist pump both with his left-hand and right, with gritted teeth. That is the celebration of the night for me!161/4
19FOURCoulter-Nile to Kohli, FOUR, sorry. I give up. I'm running out of superlatives. I'm not Kohli. I'm just a normal human being. Not superhuman like Kohli is. Look at that shot. Overpitched alright, but needs to be hit and Kohli has laced that past a diving cover. The fielder did his best to stop that but such was the timing and power that it rocketed away. Fourth boundary of the over and India are almost home and dry157/4
18.4FOURCoulter-Nile to Kohli, FOUR, Sunny Gavaskar is "wowing" on air. "Wow, wow" he says twice or thrice. This is unbelievable batting. From a different planet this lad. Mark my words. He is batting on another level. This shot is from another galaxy as well. Steps out to a length ball and knifes it over a leaping extra cover. Sweeper was just a mere spectator. Look at Kohli's face. He is aggression and concentration personified153/4
18.3FOURCoulter-Nile to Kohli, FOUR, poor delivery from Coulter-Nile and he knows it. Turns around and walks back to his mark. Short down leg, with fine leg inside the circle, Kohli had to get it past the man and does so, swivelling on the stroke and pulling with power. No chance for deep square leg. Is that the game?149/4
18.2FOURCoulter-Nile to Kohli, FOUR, and he makes up for it with a fabulous drive behind point. The crowd are going mad at Mohali. Half of them may need medical attention after the game. This is full and outside off, Kohli opens the face of the bat on the square drive and sweeper cover has no chance. All along the ground too. Now India's game to lose145/4
17.3SIXFaulkner to Kohli, SIX, has that gone all the way? Yes it has. What is this man made of? Cometh the chase and he comes alive. Is he the best of all-time? Could well be. But that is a debate for another day. A little shimmy down the track and picks the slower delivery, lofts through the line and the ball goes up in the night sky and when it comes down, it has fallen beyond long-off. The fielder was interested for a while, but it kept on going beyond his reach. Kohli jumped in the air and punched his fist in delight. Pure adrenaline on display and boy is he pumped or what. Incredible stuff out there at Mohali136/4
