Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan heroics in India’s victory over Australia at the Kennington Oval on Sunday have echoed as much on the twitter world as their willow and domination rocked the field.

Kohli has been the most tweeted player during the match. Dhawan’s 100 remained the most tweeted moment.

It was a moment of celebration for Indian cricket fans as #TeamIndia beat Australia by 36 runs in their second match of ICC Cricket World Cup #CWC19. #TeamIndia’s dominating performance kept fans on the edge and Twitter buzzing. From the moment the teams came out for the national anthem, to KL Rahul hitting the final ball of the innings for four, India’s players were cheered by a sell-out, vociferous crowd on the field and on Twitter.

Australians appeared coming closer to India’s target in their chase. But on Twitter it was the sea of Blue with no significant mention about the Kangaroos. Be it the most tweeted players’ list or the most tweeted moment in the match, the Kohli-led India swept at the top five positions.
