IndvsPak ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 was a nail biter, it was a near impossible win, yet the KING of cricket Virat Kohli turned around with a spectacular batting display, combining with Hardik Pandya to lead India to a historic win in front of 90,238 audience who came all over from the world to watch the titanic cricket match at the MCG.
This one is more special than the Mohali knock of 83 in 52 balls said Virat Kohli in a post match conversation with Ravi Shastri after winning the man of the match award. He also went on to add that he is in loss of words, after this miraculous win. He also thanked the millions of fans for backing him up even when the chips were down.
Hardik had faith that we could succeed if we persisted to the end. We made the decision to take Shaheen down when he bowled from the pavilion end. I struck those two sixes against Haris, who is their best bowler.
“The thinking in the mind was straightforward. They would panic if I could take down Haris because Nawaz still had one over to bowl. It decreased from 28 in 8 to 16 in 6. I made an effort to follow my gut. The first one (the one over long-on) was a slower ball off the back of the hand.
