Anushka all praise for Virat Kohli's on-field gesture

India fans enjoy the atmosphere

Kohli also won admirers for chiding Indian spectators when he hard them boo Steve Smith, who has just returned to the Australian side after serving a one-year ban following a ball-tampering scandal.

Pakistan left-arm seamer Shaheen Shah Afridi has admitted that captain Aaron Finch's wicket will be key when his side go up against Australia in the World Cup on Wednesday.

Smith was banned by Cricket Australia for 12 months past year for his role in ball tampering case during Cape Town Test against South Africa.

However, the Indian captain saved special praise for Hardik Pandya, who was promoted up the order to deliver quick runs and duly fired a freakish 48 off just 27 deliveries, including clubbing an enormous six straight over the head of Australian seamer Pat Cummins.

After treatment at Boston and Indianapolis in March 2012, he made a comeback with a 35-ball 77 in a T20 worldwide against Australia and continued to be a huge favourite for teams in the Indian Premier League. He instead made a "clap" gesture and pointed towards Smith. But they found support in Virat Kohli who asked the crowd twice to stop booing Smith and start cheering them.
