Indian skipper Virat Kohli, just like everyone else, is excited about the exciting comeback made by the duo of Deepak Chahar and Bhuvneshwar Kumar in the second one-day international against Sri Lanka in Colombo.
And why would he not?
Team India, who chased 276, looked dead and buried when Wanindu Hasaranga dismissed Krunal Pandya with the score 7,193.
However, Deepak Chahar’s brilliant counter-attack 69 * from 82 balls and Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s calm-and-collected 28-ball 19 * helped India write one of their best ODI victories in recent times.
How Deepak Chahar and Bhuvneshwar Kumar approached the situation was a clear reflection of the spiritual strength of the current Indian players.
And Kohli, just like every Indian cricket fan, is terrified of it.
Kohli, after his official Twitter account, congratulated the Shikhar Dhawan-led unit for how they withdrew the game from a seemingly hopeless situation.
Virat had special praise for Deepak Chahar and Suryakumar Yadav for their brilliant beat.
Virat Kohli responds to the win of Team India in the 2nd ODI against Sri Lanka in Colombo:
A big win by the boys. From a difficult situation to picking it up was an incredible effort. Lovely to look at. Well done DC and Surya. Great beat under pressure “Kohli wrote.

Suryakumar Yadav may not have been able to finish off the move – but his header was tipped over the bar by the visitors’ keeper.
Surya came in at a time when Team India had lost three wickets for 65. However, the situation did not hamper him as he unleashed the delightful blows against the spinners.
And for once the tail swings in the right way 😄
A striking victory for India after being 160-6 at one point.
