Star India batsman Virat Kohli thanked the fans on Saturday for their constant support for the national team throughout the World Twenty20 cricket tournament.

After losing to New Zealand in their campaign opener, India -- winners of the inaugural edition in 2007 -- staged a strong comeback, beating arch-rivals Pakistan, Bangladesh and Australia but eventually lost to West Indies in the second semi-final by seven wickets here on Thursday to crash out of the competition.

Kohli tweeted the following:

The 27-year-old scored an impressive 273 runs in just five innings in the competition to continue his consistent run in the shortest format of the game lately.

The Delhi-lad also single-handedly helped India cross the victory line as he smashed three unbeaten match-winning half-centuries against Pakistan, Australia and West Indies.
