Kohli's statement:

"It was quite a special day for us. As a team, we had spoken after the last match that it matters what kind of attitude we play this match with. Because this tournament was important for us. We got exposure to knockout stages, we got exposure to pressure, but we all know what our goal is. It's the World Cup in Australia and we are improving for that and we will learn from the matches we lost," Kohli told Rohit.

The 33years old batter kept on going, "Personally, not just today but from the time that I returned to the team, I got a big break, and quite a few things came into perspective. And from you guys and the management, the communication was clear -- to just let me bat. That was very important for me. The space I got from all of you guys really helped me relax in that whole phase. And when I came back, I was excited about how I could contribute to the team."

"I wanted to play like this because we have a big World Cup coming up, and if I play like this, I'll be contributing more," Kohli finished his statement. He didn't forget to remind that he surprised himself too by scoring the century in the T20 format.

As the main batter of the team, India is back in the form it's going to be a huge boost for team India in the T20 WC.
