After India’s dominating victory against Pakistan on Sunday in the ICC Champions Trophy 2017, Indian skipper Virat Kohli said that he “felt like a club batter” when teammate Yuvraj Singh was in full flow during the match against green brigade.
Defending champions India started their campaign with a resounding 124-run victory over Pakistan.
Kohli and Yuvraj stood out in an all-round batting effort, propelling India to 319 for three after rain halted proceedings twice. Yuvraj smashed 53 off 32 balls.
“Yuvi took pressure off when I couldn’t get runs. The way he was hitting the ball, I felt like a club batter in front of him,” Kohli said at the post-match press conference.
