Even as Team India captain Virat Kohli powered India to a stupendous win over West Indies in their first T-20 match on Friday in Hyderabad, his “celebrations” during the course of his unbeaten 94 got the crowd going crazy, both on- and off-field.

After hitting Kesrick Williams for a six in the sixteenth over, a charged-up Virat “celebrated” by pulling out an imaginary notebook from his trousers to "tick"off presumably against the bowler's name. And the crowd went mad!
