Indian Cricket Team broke all the shackles and won the match against their arch-rivals Pakistan. Virat Kohli was magnificent as the batter smashed 82 runs in 53 balls where he struck 6 fours and 4 sixes. The right-handed batter was quite instrumental in the run chase.

The management would be thrilled after seeing the Vintage Virat Kohli. The batter got ample support from the flamboyant all-rounder Hardik Pandya. Hardik scored 40 runs in 37 balls where he struck 1 four and 2 sixes. The duo was involved in 113 runs partnership as they frustrated Pakistani bowlers.

Brett Lee on Virat Kohli

The Australian pacer was having an interaction with Legends League Cricket and was asked about Virat Kohli. “I found it quite amusing when someone of the calibre of Virat Kohli was attacked. Those who had attacked Kohli didn’t have a look at his records and his performances in the three formats of the game,” said Lee

There are times when you don’t get hundreds or you don’t get fifties. That’s all part of professional sport. What I do know is Virat Kohli is a legend of the game and it’s very hard to keep these guys down for too long,” he added.

Incredible Win For India

The Men in Blue wouldn’t have thought of chasing 48 runs in the last 3 overs. The team showed great character and displayed never to say die attitude. Virat Kohli played one of the greatest knocks in the history of  T20I Cricket as the pitch was not an easy one.

The Management would be worried because once again the entire responsibility was on the shoulders of Virat Kohli. The likes of KL Rahul and Suryakumar Yadav should have stayed a bit long at the crease. A billion people would be over the moon as the team took revenge for the 2021 T20 WC defeat.
