The Indian cricketer Virat Kohli is back in form and he has played an important role in both the wins of his team in the ICC T20 World Cup 2022. The former Indian cricketer went through a lean phase for almost 3 years as he was not able to score a century in this duration but he got his mojo back in the Asia Cup 2022 where he played some really good knocks. Though India didn’t even manage to enter the finals of the tournament, Indian fans were still happy because Virat Kohli scored a century in the match against Afghanistan.
In the ICC T20 World Cup 2022, Virat Kohli is in superb form and he played a match winning knock in India’s first match which was against Pakistan. It was an intense, exciting and thrilling contest which got over on the last ball of the match and Virat scored 82 runs of only 53 deliveries. The social media was flooded with praises for Kohli by cricket fans from all over the world and many people from the cricket fraternity also appreciated him for his innings.
India’s second match was against Netherlands at Sydney Cricket Ground on 27th Oct 2022 and ahead of that game when Virat Kohli was having a conversation with former South African cricketer Dale Steyn, they were joined by former Aussie cricketer Adam Gilchrist and Gillie greeted Kohli in a passionate manner.
It seemed as if Adam Gilchrist was congratulating Virat Kohli for his innings against Pakistan and he shook hands with the Indian cricketer in an extra excited manner. Moreover before taking leave, Adam Gilchrist gave a pat and thumbs up to the Indian cricketer.
