Kohli continued to reprise his role as Australia’s tormentor-in-chief, smacking nine fours and two sixes in his unbeaten 82-run knock off just 51 balls to steer the hosts to victory with five balls remaining.

Chasing a challenging target of 161, India top-order batsmen once again failed to click as they were reeling at 49-3 at 7.4 overs before Kohli engineered two crucial partnerships with Yuvraj Singh (21) and Mahendra Singh Dhoni (18 not out).

Earlier, Indian bowlers made a brilliant comeback to restrict Australia to 160 for six despite a thunderous start given by Aaron Finch (43) and Usman Khwaja (26).

With the win, India have set up a semifinal showdown against West Indies which will be played on Thursday at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
