New Delhi, April 05 (ANI): Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni has hailed batting star Virat Kohli's consistency for helping India clinch a slot in the World Twenty20 finals following their six-wicket win over South Africa in the semi- finals at Dhaka on Friday. The win becomes India's second final in five World T20s after they won the inaugural event held in South Africa in 2007, and they will next face Sri Lanka in Dhaka on Sunday. Chasing 173 to win, India was led by a swashbuckling knock of 72 not out by Kohli as they strolled to the target with five balls to spare, and Dhoni, who will lead India to a triple crown if his team win the final with the 2011 World Cup (50 overs) and 2013 Champions Trophy in the bag, praised the run chase.
