MS Dhoni’s men were facing elimination half-way into their innings against Australia but Kohli’s spectacular shot-selection helped them chase down a par-total.It was Kohli’s unbelievable ability to find the gaps that helped India set West Indies a challenging 193 to win. But a disappointing show by the bowlers and dew rendered India helpless as West Indies stormed into the final.Former England player Nasser Hussain had told India Today on Saturday that Kohli had been the most outstanding player in this tournament.advertisement”Virat has been the player of the tournament. He has lifted an entire team alone and he has been brilliant under pressure,” Hussain said.Former West Indies pacer Ian Bishop said Kohli was at the peak of his powers and he will end up as the best chaser the game has ever seen. “Kohli is at the peak of his powers. He will carve his own legacy.”Sourav Ganguly had earlier told India Today that Kohli is now a better chaser than the great Sachin Tendulkar while former Australia captain Ian Chappell reckoned that Kohli places the ball better than West Indian legend Brian Lara.
