Indian skipper Virat Kohli posted a throwback picture of a memorable moment in the WT20 match against Australia with MS Dhoni. India registered an incredible victory in the match to proceed to the semi-finals of WT20 2016 at Punjab Cricket Association, IS Bindra Stadium, Mohali on March 27, 2016.

Australia managed to score 160 runs at the loss of 6 wickets. However, the Indian top order struggled during the chase. Shikhar Dhawan went back to the pavilion after scoring just 13 runs off 12 balls, while Rohit Sharma was dismissed by Shane Watson early at 12 runs. Suresh Raina became the victim of a slower short ball down leg by Shane Watson and went off the crease after scoring just 10 runs.
