The Indian cricket team’s journey in the T20 World Cup in Australia finally ended in a disappointing way.
Although the Indian team had a good start, the team lost badly to England in the semi-finals.
Indian cricket team’s dream of winning another title remained unfulfilled.
But not everything has been negative for India in this tournament.
Some players of India performed well in this tournament, one of them was former captain Virat Kohli.
Virat Kohli, who has been going through a period of poor performance for several months, performed well first in the Asia Cup and then in this T20 World Cup.
Although the Indian team did not play the final match, but Virat Kohli became the highest run scorer in the tournament.
Virat played many good innings in this World Cup, but his most memorable innings was against Pakistan.
India had to play its first match against Pakistan in this World Cup.
At one time in this match, India was in trouble and it seemed that the match would go out of its hands.
But Virat Kohli came as a savior for India and accomplished a seemingly impossible goal.
At one time India had to score 28 runs in eight balls.
But Virat Kohli changed the course of the match by hitting two consecutive sixes in the last two balls of Haris Rauf’s over.
It was a matter of the 19th over. After this, the last over was also very dramatic and finally India won this match.

What has ICC said on Virat Kohli’s innings?
The ICC T20 World Cup is over.
England won the T20 World Cup title for the second time by defeating Pakistan.
Now the ICC has told about five such moments of this world which turned the dice of the match.
It also talks about the innings of Virat Kohli which he played against Pakistan.
ICC has written – India was in trouble. It seemed that he had delayed too much, as 28 runs were required from just eight balls. Haris Rauf was bowling brilliantly.
ICC has further written- Haris Rauf was throwing his fourth over. Two balls were left to complete the fourth over. Till that time Rauf had given only 24 runs in his spell. But in front of India and Virat Kohli, it was a now or never situation.
…Haris Rauf bowled the next ball, which was of good pace. The aim was not to give space to Kohli to hit the shot. The ball was also the same.
The ICC has even written in praise of that shot of Virat Kohli that on this ball the Indian star did what was an impossible feat for any batsman.
But with the help of his wrist, Virat hit such a shot that the ball floating in the sky of Melbourne fell straight into the stand.
