Mohali, Mar. 28 : India's limited-overs skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni has heaped praise on star batsman Virat Kohli after he struck a sublime half-century against Australia to power his side to the semifinals of the ongoing World T20, describing his innings as `incredible`.

The 27-year-old continued to reprise his role as Australia's tormentor-in-chief as he smashed nine fours and two sixes in his unbeaten knock of 82 runs off just 51 balls as India chased down the massive target of 161 runs with five balls to spare.

Bengaluru, Mar 24 : Although skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni remained calm under intense pressure and 'managed chaos' in India's nerve-wracking one-run win over Bangladesh in their penultimate league game of the World Twenty20 , he was left fuming over a hostile question asked by a reporter during the post-match press conference in Bengaluru.

The journalist asked why India was only good enough to win by one run, pointing towards the team's poor run-rate. However, a visibly irate Dhoni hit back by accusing the reporter of being disappointed India won the match.

Kolkata: Notwithstanding a convincing win over arch-rivals Pakistan, Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni on Saturday cautioned against complacency and said the side could still improve in some areas, especially in tackling opponent spinners.

"I think we can still do better (playing against spin). What is important is not to get satisfied with the performance," Dhoni said after humbling Pakistan by six wickets in a group 2 encoutner of the World Twenty20 at the Eden Gardens.

Kolkata, Mar. 19 : In one of the most awaited and exciting fixture of the T-20 World Cup, the Indian Men's team will face Pakistan at Eden Gardens in Kolkata this evening.

On the other hand, after having won their first match against Bangladesh by 55 runs, the Pakistani side will be all confident when they face the men in blue.

Survival at stake as India take on Pakistan in ICC World T20

Kolkata: Jolted by the shock loss to New Zealand in the opening game, India will be fighting a survival battle quite early in the tournament when they take on arch foes Pakistan in what is being seen as the marquee clash of the ICC World Twenty20 here.

The hosts, who started clear title-favourites, were in for a blow in the first match itself when New Zealand's spinners bamboozled their famed batting line-up on a turning Nagpur track.

As a result, the world No. 1 side is staring at an early elimination should it lose to Pakistan in the high-voltage game on Saturday at the Eden Gardens.
