‘King Kohli back on throne’: Anand Mahindra, Harsh Goenka hail Virat Kohli’s T20 innings against Pakistan

Ind vs Pak T20 World Cup: It was quite a thriller at Australia’s Melbourne Cricket Ground, where India defeated their arch-rival Pakistan in their first clash in the T-20 World Cup 2022. Chasing 159, India had a disastrous start with four down at just 34 runs in six overs.

At one point, the statistics were heavily against the Men in Blue but Virat Kohli played what would be remembered as one of his best innings in the shortest format and won the match for India.

Kohli’s 82 off 53 deliveries with Hardik Pandya’s crucial 40 runs in 37 balls took India to the finish line in the high-octane battle. Kohli’s fiery innings brought early Diwali for cricket fans across the country and the world.

Kohli’s fans hailed his composure and called him ‘King Kohli’. “Kohli played an innings of his lifetime,” a cricket fan said while speaking to India Today. The other fan said this was the most remarkable comeback by a player in cricket history.

JAI HO INDIA! #indiaVsPakistan,” he wrote on Twitter.
