Virat Kohli Recalls T20 World Cup Knockout Match Against Pakistan: “Never Felt Energy Like That”

Virat Kohli Recalls T20 World Cup Knockout Match Against Pakistan: "Never Felt Energy Like That"
On Instagram on Saturday, Kohli posted a photo from the match against Pakistan with the caption: "2022 October 23 will always hold a special place in my heart. Never experienced such excitement during a cricket match before. What a fortunate evening it was."

Team India were expected to go all the way in the 2022 T20 World Cup. but the side bowed out after losing the semi-finals against England. In a one-sided affair, England steamrolled over India, and the Jos Buttler-led side eventually went on to win the tournament for the second time. However, the tournament can be remembered for Virat Kohli‘s heroics and how the batter was in top form. It is hard to go past the batter’s unbeaten 82-run knock against Pakistan, and this innings guided India to an improbable win in the final over at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

On Saturday, Kohli shared a picture from the match against Pakistan on Instagram and he captioned the post as: “October 23rd 2022 will always be special in my heart. Never felt energy like that in a cricket game before. What a blessed evening that was.”

Team India were completely down and out in the contest after being reduced to 31/4 in the 7th over while chasing 160, but a steady partnership between Kohli and Hardik Pandya brought India back on track.

And in the final overs, Kohli took down the likes of Shaheen Shah Afridi, Haris Rauf and Naseem Shah. Mohammad Nawaz bowled the final over of the game, and the spinner erred as he bowled a no-ball and a wide, and then Kohli ensured that India get over the line.

Batting at No.3 is Indian superstar Kohli, who ended as the tournament’s highest run-scorer after scoring 296 runs at a stunning average of 98.66.

Kohli kickstarted his campaign with a pivotal 82 not out against rivals Pakistan to anchor his side to a heart-thumping final-ball four-wicket victory.

And further knocks of 64 not out against Bangladesh, 62 not out against the Netherlands and 50 against England in the semi-finals helped round off an individual competition to savour for one of the greatest white-ball batters of the modern era.
