Colombo, Oct 1: India's latest sensation Virat Kohli, who scored a brilliant half century against Pakistan to help India record an eight wicket win, said being calm helped him to score big.

Bowlers, Kohli set up easy win for India

Highlights: India Vs Pakistan

Kohli was grounded even after his magnificent knock against Pakistan which helped Team India to register a win within 17 overs as he said being calm helped him achieve it as there was too much of pressure playing against arch-rivals Pakistan

"I wanted to be as calm and composed against Pakistan as possible. It is always an important match and I felt in the last game, I lost out. So it feels great to perform well today," said Kohli after the match.

Kohli, who was unbeaten on 78, hit 2 sixes and eight boundaries during the 61-ball knock, and was involved in a 74-run partnership with Sehwag for the second wicket, and also added 54 runs with Yuvraj Singh for the third wicket to ensure India an eight wicket win.

The Delhi batsman has been quite consistent for the team since the last two years, as he has also contributed more than 25% of the runs scored by all the Indian players in the calendar year.
