Champions Trophy 2017: Ind v Pak; Kohli all praises for Yuvraj, says felt like 'club batter' in front of him
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.
