Published

on

India’s Rohit Sharma has propelled the team into the ICC T20 World Cup final through stellar leadership and batting performances. However, the spotlight remains on the former captain, Virat Kohli, amidst concerns about his form in the tournament.

The 35-year-old Kohli, who has been a central figure in Indian cricket, has faced scrutiny for his below-par performance in the World Cup, managing only 75 runs in seven innings.

Kohli, India’s second-leading run-scorer in T20 internationals, finds himself at a crossroads, with questions looming over his future in the team despite his undeniable talent.

While Kohli is expected to feature in the final, speculation abounds on whether this crucial match could mark a significant moment in his illustrious World Cup career.

Reflecting on five standout moments in Kohli’s limited-overs cricket journey:

In the 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup, Kohli played a crucial role in India’s victory, contributing vital knocks in the group stage and forming key partnerships with the likes of Yuvraj Singh.

A year later, Kohli showcased his prowess in a tri-nation ODI series in Australia, where his match-winning innings of 133 against Sri Lanka earned him widespread acclaim.

During the Asia Cup in 2012, Kohli’s heroic 183 against arch rivals Pakistan further solidified his reputation as a masterful run-chaser and a cornerstone of India’s batting lineup.

In the 2014 T20 World Cup semifinal against South Africa, Kohli’s unbeaten 74 dismantled the Proteas’ formidable bowling attack, guiding India to a historic victory in a tense encounter.

Kohli’s unforgettable innings in the opening match of the T20 World Cup 2022 against Pakistan, where he single-handedly steered India to a remarkable win with his unbeaten 82, remains etched in cricketing folklore.

As Kohli navigates a challenging phase in his career, his legacy as one of cricket’s greatest batters is defined by these iconic moments that have left an indelible mark on the sport.
