New Delhi :28/2:(odiannews):India skipper Virat Kohli Wednesday said Australia completely “outplayed” the hosts in the two-match T20 series and specially praised Glenn Maxwell for his marauding match-winning knock here.
Maxwell fired Australia to their maiden T20 series win over India with a sensational hundred, overshadowing India skipper Kohli’s (72 off 38) special effort.
Maxwell (113 not out off 55 balls) went on a rampage, smashing as many as nine sixes on way to his third century in the shortest format.
He took the game away from India, who should have defended 190 for four after Kohli and Mahendra Singh Dhoni shared a 100-run stand for the fourth wicket.
“It was a pretty short series to summarise the performances. Australia outplayed us in all departments and deserved to win. 190 is a good total on most grounds but if there is so much dew as there was tonight and when you have an innings like what Glenn Maxwell played, nothing much you can do,” Kohli said at the post-match press conference.
