Is That Old Virat Back? King Kohli With A Thug Reply: Kohli scored his third half-century and second Man of the Match award in the tournament and added value to the Indian team. The cricketing world is not seeing Kohli as it was seen some time ago. Out of form, Kohli struggled to score runs and received constant criticism.
But the entire sports world witnessed the comeback of a cricketer named Virat. The winning streak that started in the Asia Cup is now continuing in the T20 World Cup as well.
After the match against Bangladesh, the player also held the record for scoring the most runs in the T20 World Cup. Kohli broke Mahela Jayawardene’s record of 1016 runs to become the top run-scorer.
All the fans are saying that they got their old Virat back. Harsha Bhogle couldn’t help but ask this during the post-match presentation after the match against Bangladesh.
‘Is that old Virat Kohli back?’ Harsha Bhogle asked. But Kohli answered this in an interesting way.
‘It was a very close match. It was a much closer match than we wanted. It was a very good batting day for me. I was trying to compete and play by myself.
I came into batting at a stressful time. Bowling was clearly observed. To answer your question I am in a very happy place right now. I don’t want to compare anything to anything. “What’s past is over,” Kohli said.
Earlier, the Bangladesh skipper won the toss and sent India into bat. India has already lost captain Rohit Sharma in KL. A good score was built on the strength of Rahul’s and former captain Virat’s innings.
Virat scored an unbeaten 64 from 44 balls and Rahul shone with 50 runs from 32 balls. Suryakumar Yadav also provided good support with 30 runs from 16 balls.
India ended the innings at 184 for six in the stipulated over due to the brilliant innings of the trio.
Batting in reply, Bangladesh got off to a dream start. A half-century from opener Liton Das led the Bengal Tigers to the fore when the rain came and halted the match.
After the rain, the target was revised to 151 in 16 overs. But soon after Liton Das got out, Bangladesh’s victory was also going away.
After the win against Bangladesh, India also managed to top the group standings.
India’s next match is on November 6. Chevrons will be the opponents in the match at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
