Virat timed the ball all around the park as the Sussex bowlers found it hard to tackle Virat Kohli. He marched his way to 71 runs of just 83 balls with 6 fours and a big six off the park. ODI specialists Parthiv Patel & Rohit Sharma joined the party as they went on to score 55 & 61runs respectively. Sachin Tendulkar make a quick 21 runs of just 17 balls but the mainstay for India was none other than Virat Kohli as the Indians went on to win by 6 wickets. RP Singh was the pick of the bowler picking up 4 wickets in the match.
