West Indies pulled off a great chase as they knocked hosts India out of the 2016 World T20. Virat Kohli’s all-round heroics with the bat, ball and in the field were not enough as India failed themselves by taking Lendl Simmons’ wicket twice on a no-ball.
The Twitter world was full of people going crazy during the match, and that gave us some very interesting tweets.
West Indies beat us 600 years back as well? :(

Typical Indian employee working hard on the final day of the financial year.
Rohit Sharma scoring runs after long time, Seems he is completing his year end target. #IndvsWI— Sunil- The Cricketer (@1sInto2s) March 31, 2016
Would have directly improved Virat Kohli’s efficiency by 80%
“Sensible Cricket” as Sunny Gavaskar calls it.
Q. How much satisfaction do u want in life?— Sri Free Rofl Gandhi (@RoflGandhi_) March 31, 2016
A: Want to be as satisfied as Gavaskar gets with a single after two consecutive sixes. #IndvsWI
This is why voting is never helpful
Rohit sir has got such a wide range of shots that he does an internal poll to decide which shot to play and gets LBW sometimes.#IndvsWI— Sri Free Rofl Gandhi (@RoflGandhi_) March 31, 2016
Just to complete the cycle.
Keeper missed— Gaurav Sethi (@BoredCricket) March 31, 2016
Need the umpire to miss a Virat Kohli run out now#IndvsWI
For those who missed the run-out chance. And now you’re thinking “Hey, even I would’ve hit from there.”
Right in the feels.
Being a CA student, I can understand West Indies's situation after they missed a run out even in 2 attemps.#IndvsWI— Sunil- The Cricketer (@1sInto2s) March 31, 2016

And imagine our plight having to find new superlatives for the guy in every article we write about India.
Googling more words to compliment someone, coz my vocabulary cannot appreciate Virat Kohli enough for his performances. #IndvsWI— Gautam (@gautamverma23) March 31, 2016
He did get Chris Gayle out early, so well deserved!
Well, lol. No? Okay, sorry!
When Charles and Simmons accelerated in the middle of the innings.
Ok West Indies, so you have had your win in the Women's semifinals. Let's not be greedy now! 😜 #WT20— Vikram Chandra (@vikramchandra) March 31, 2016
Indian fans were tensed. Very tensed!
Sad but true!
