Kohli, who was batting at that time, took notice of it and was clearly not happy with the fans' gestures. Showing his classy side, the Indian captain turned towards the stand and gestured at the fans to cheer for Smith and not boo at him.
The 30-year-old skipper said that his team has a "good bowling-line up" and said that there is "a lot of depth in the batting line-up."
Heaping praises on Pandya for his stupendous batting performance, Kohli said that the team management has always backed him because of his game-changing abilities.
Asked whether India was on course of booking a place in the semifinals after notching up two consecutive wins, the Indian skipper said it was too early to speculate.
Meanwhile, Australian skipper Aaron Finch congratulated India for their victory and praised him for assessing the conditions well.
Defending 352, Indian bowlers did not allow the Australian batsmen to score freely as they bowled tight lines to ensure that the match did not go out of their hand.
