Virat Kohli promoted himself up the order in the place of Kl Rahul who was dropped for the 5th T20. The plan worked very nicely as India did not lose any early wickets and two of the best batsmen from India faced a lot of deliveries which was decisive in the end. He finished with 80 not out of just 52 deliveries with two sixes and 7 fours that propelled the Indian total to a massive 224 on the board.

Virat Kohli was adjudged the man of the series for his excellent run of form with the bat in which he scored three unbeaten half-centuries and two of those knocks helped Indians win. This could be the way India go about things in the T20 WorldCup as mentioned by Virat Kohli in the post-match interview and he also added that he will open in the IPL which is good signs for the Indian team.
