Kohli leads from front to defeat SA in T20 match

Virat Kohli scored an unbeaten half century and a brilliant catch as India managed seven-wicket win over South Africa in the second T20 international in Mohali on Wednesday. Kohli overtook vice-captain Rohit Sharma as the leading run-getter in T20 internationals.

Speaking after receiving man of the match, ' you (Sanjay Manjrekar) reminded me of the best game of my T20 career. I got a bit of motivation from that. When you play like that and win a game for your team, it is always a good feeling. That night (2016 knock against Australia) was a revelation of how fit you can be on a cricket field'.

Kohli first took a brilliant catch running to his left from mid-off off Navdeep Saini's bowling in the 12th over to send counterpart Quinton de Kock (52 off 37 balls; 8x4) back to the pavilion and stymie South Africa's run-flow as they ended up with 149/5 in 20 overs after being asked to bat first.
