It was a thriller at the T20 World Cup in Melbourne on Sunday, with India leading ahead of Pakistan by four goals. Pursuing 160, India got off to a bad start, conceding 4 goals in the first 7 rounds. But after that Virat kohli take center stage. The former India captain went 82 unbeaten and ensured India started the big event with a win. Pakistan had an uphill fight to the end with India needing 31 out of 12 balls. In the penultimate position, defeated by Haris RaufKohli hit a quick two-six bowler to bring the equation down to the final 16.

“Those two sixs aside from Haris Rauf, I think that’s the turning point. Not the turning point I would say; this is where the game really comes down to us a little bit because we always knew there was a spinning bowling game. So inside in the dressing room we thought if we could keep the last 15 to 18 runs, the guy would be under pressure to beat the last game. last time bowling with us in the Asian Cup and Hardik played some shots against him,” said Rohit.

“Obviously it’s not easy when you have to knock the last man down to be the spinner and only have 15 or 18 runs to defend. It’s not easy. Sometimes it plays both ways. I believe that the pressure is always on the bowler. Situation. Yeah, I think we organized pretty well in the last three. That was nice to watch.”


Rohit says Kohli’s winning shot will be one of the best for India.

“Yes, I think it has to go – definitely his best, but I think from the situation we’re in, and to win, I think it has to be one of the best shots of the game. India, not only his knock out the best, because until the end of the 13th we were too slow for the game, and the necessary rate just climbed and increased. But to show up and chase according to the score it was an extremely brilliant effort by Virat, and then it was clear that Hardik played a role there,” he said.
