One of the best innings I have played: Virat Kohli

Virat Kohli --> Indian captain and Man of the Series: 


We had spoken a lot about batting first and winning. It was about going out there & executing. I was in the zone & I carried on. Told KL(Rahul), he needs to bat long and hold one end. It was a pretty special innings & also being our second wedding anniversary, it was a special gift. It was a special night and one of the best innings I have played. And batting first we won, feels really good. I know I can contribute in all three formats. It is about putting your mind into it. Now with the World Cup coming up there is motivation. My part becomes crucial as I have to play two roles. When you are not playing T20s for a while and come back & play like this, it feels good. There is one thing about talking about the plans but it is about executing them on the field. I think two guys in the middle with clarity and the way Rahul and Rohit Sharma played today was the key today. Batting first, we have been too tight and hesitant, but this pitch allowed us to play freely. It was a good lesson for us and now we need to remember it. Depends on what pitch and ground you are playing on whether scoring more boundaries is a must. You don't really feel the pressure when you have 20-25 runs on the board. Playing the World Cup in Australia, we will have to figure out how big the boundaries are.
