The India team was expected to go all the way in the 2022 T20 World Cup, but the team withdrew after losing the semi-finals against England. In a one-sided affair, England crushed India, and the Jos Buttler-led team eventually won the tournament for the second time. However, the tournament can be remembered for Virat Kohli’s heroism and how the batsman was in top form. It’s hard to top the batsman’s 82-run unbeaten strike against Pakistan, and this innings guided India to an improbable victory in the final at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
On Saturday, Kohli shared a photo from the match against Pakistan on Instagram and captioned the post as: “October 23, 2022 will always be special in my heart. I have never felt energy like that before at a cricket game. What a blessed night it was that”. .”
The India team was completely down in the contest after being reduced to 31/4 in the seventh while chasing 160, but a steady partnership between Kohli and Hardik Pandya got India back on track.
And in the final overs, Kohli defeated the likes of Shaheen Shah Afridi, Haris Rauf and Naseem Shah. Mohammad Nawaz bowled the final over of the game, and the spinner botched a no-ball and wide, and then Kohli made sure India crossed the line.
Coming in at number 3 is Indian superstar Kohli, who finished as the tournament’s leading run-scorer after scoring 296 runs at an astonishing average of 98.66.
Kohli began his campaign with a pivotal 82 unmatched by rivals Pakistan to anchor his side to a thrilling four-wicket victory at the final ball.
And further hits of 64 against Bangladesh, 62 against the Netherlands and 50 against England in the semi-finals helped round out an individual competition to savor for one of the greatest white-ball batsmen of the modern era.
