Team India was expected to make it to the 2022 T20 World Cup. but the team fell out after losing the semi-final against England. In a one-sided affair, England rolled over India and the Jos Buttler-led side eventually won the tournament for a second time. However, the tournament can be remembered for Virat Kohli’s heroics and how the batsman was on top form. It’s hard to go past the batsman’s unbeaten 82-run knockout against Pakistan, and this innings led 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 he captioned the post as, “October 23, 2022 will always be special in my heart. Never felt such energy in a cricket match before. What a blessed night that was. “
Team India were completely down and out in the game after being reduced to 31/4 in the 7th over as they chased 160, but a steady partnership between Kohli and Hardik Pandya put India back on track.
And in the last overs, Kohli defeated Shaheen Shah Afridi, Haris Rauf and Naseem Shah, among others. Mohammad Nawaz bowled the last over of the game, and the spinner made an error when he bowled a no-ball and a ball, after which Kohli helped India cross the line.
Batting at number 3 is Indian superstar Kohli, who finished as the tournament’s highest run scorer after scoring 296 runs with an astonishing average of 98.66.
Kohli started his campaign with a crucial 82 not out against rivals Pakistan to anchor his side in a heartbreaking final-ball four-wicket victory.
And further knockouts of 64 not away against Bangladesh, 62 not away against the Netherlands and 50 against England in the semi-finals helped round out an individual competition to enjoy for one of the greatest white-balled hitters of the modern era .
