For the Indian team, chasing a 330-run target for victory in Dhaka, Kohli scored 183 runs in 148 balls with 22 fours and a six to help India win by six wickets.
Gambhir, who failed to open the account in this match, said, "Virat Kohli has played many incredible innings in all three formats, but this (183) is his most brilliant innings from every point of view." Star Sports program 'Best of Asia' In the Cup Watch Along, Gambhir said, "We were chasing 330 and the Indian team lost the wicket without opening an account." At that time he was not so experienced and then scoring 183 alone out of 330 was very special. ''
In that match, Pakistan had experienced bowlers like Mohammad Hafeez, Umar Gul, Ejaz Cheema, Saeed Ajmal, Shahid Afridi and Wahab Riaz. Kohli blew the Pakistani attack. "I think it is probably (183) one of the greatest innings of Virat Kohli."
