Bollywood celebs took to their Twitter handles to bow down to India’s victory over Australia in front of a jubilant crowd in Mohali on Sunday. Star batsman Virat Kohli produced a scintillating half-century as India stormed into the semi-finals of the World Twenty20 after thumping Australia by six wickets.

The tweets of the BTown biggies read:

“@imVkohli you were brilliance times infinity !! Pure genius. Thank you for tonight ! And may many more such nights come our way !!,” tweeted Big-B.

“@msdhoni many congratulations .. another great example of your leadership ! So much to learn from you !!,” read his another tweet.

“What an innings! Virat SALUTE ! This innings was a combination of a marathon, a chess game, and archery! Bullseye! Love and respect! a.,” read Aamir Khan’s tweet.

“Virat is to 2010s what Sachin was to 1990s & 2000s - #HopeAlive,” wrote Riteish Deshmukh.

“Virat ... True champion ,” wrote Dhanush.

“I can’t stop clapping!!!!!!! what running!!! What spirit!!! #Kohli take a bow!!! #Dhoni #Victory #INDIA,” tweeted Sushmita Sen.

“What an incredible innings by Virat Kohli; nerves of steel - well done #TeamIndia #IndvsAus,” wrote Soha Ali Khan.

“Yeahhhhhh #IndvsAus #virat rocked this game & how I’d like to thank his math teacher for teaching him that 6 & 4 come before 1 ting !,” tweeted Preity Zinta.

Chasing a challenging target of 161, India top-order batsmen once again failed to click as they were reeling at 49-3 at 7.4 overs before Kohli engineered two crucial partnerships with Yuvraj Singh (21) and Mahendra Singh Dhoni (18 not out).

Earlier, Indian bowlers made a brilliant comeback to restrict Australia to 160 for six despite a thunderous start given by Aaron Finch (43) and Usman Khwaja (26).

With the win, India have set up a semifinal showdown against West Indies which will be played on Thursday at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
