Veteran cricketer Virat Kohli stole the show at the 2022 T20 World Cup match between India and Pakistan on Sunday, October 23 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. He entertained the fans by putting up a great show with the bat. His terrific knock powered India to a four-wicket win over the arch-rivals to open the team’s account at the mega-event.

Chasing 160 runs, Team India was in a spot of bother having lost four wickets for just 31 runs on the board in just over six overs. After that, Hardik Pandya and Virat Kohli steadied the Indian innings, putting on a 113 runs partnership for the fifth wicket. Pandya took on the charge initially, however, after he slowed down a bit, Kohli put his foot on the accelerator.

Team India reached 144 runs in 19 overs,  on the back of Hardik-Kohli’s partnership. Needing 16 runs off the final over, India lost Hardik on the very first delivery. A couple of tight deliveries from Nawaz followed, but Kohli’s six brought India back into the game. Ashwin hit a four off the last delivery to take India home.

Kohli stayed unbeaten on 82 runs off 53 deliveries, slamming six boundaries and four sixes, at a strike rate of 154.72. The experts and the fans lauded the Indian cricketer’s knock. They took to Twitter to congratulate the Indian team and hail, Virat Kohli.
