Newshub18: Kohli’s worthy reply to critics, topped Rohit Sharma’s unique record.Durant scored a half-century against Hong Kong. But critics did not want to pay much attention to his innings as he was a weak opponent. Instead of batting aggressively like Suryakumar Yadav, many expressed their displeasure as to why he scored runs so slowly. Many people also commented that because he is in the party, the party is losing. Today, when India entered the field for the second time in the Asia Cup against Pakistan, Virat Kohli gave a worthy answer to his critics with the bat.
Today, Pakistan won the toss and sent India to bat. Rahul and Rohit played the young pacer Naseem Shah, who created terror in the hearts of the Indian batsmen in the last match, very well today. But despite batting very aggressively and India getting off to a good start, the two openers failed to score big runs. Both Rohit and Rahul were dismissed with individual scores of just 28 runsThen the Indian team started losing wickets one after another on the other side.
But Virat Kohli was keeping his wicket with his life. Although not very aggressive, some spectacular shots come out of his bat. Hardik Pandya, who was India’s hero in the last match against Pakistan, was a complete failure today. The star all-rounder returned to the pavilion without scoring any runs. As a result, Virat’s responsibility has increased. Till the last over, Virat made India cross the barrier of 180 runs from the crease. The former India captain scored 60 runs off 44 balls with 4 fours and a six. Young author spinner Ravi Vishni, who played his first match in the Asia Cup, did not play a major role in India’s 180-run run with two fours off Harris Rauf in the last two balls of the innings. Rohit Sharma made several changes to balance the team today. Dinesh Karthik and Abesh Khan were dropped from the team. <span;>They were replaced by Deepak Hooda and this young Vishnee. Foota could not score more than 16 runs from 14 balls with the bat.
After today’s half-century, Virat Kohli became the single-handed owner of the most half-centuries in the T20 format. He shared this record with current India captain Rohit Sharma before today’s match. After today’s match, Virat Kohli’s fifty stands at 32. Rohit is second with 31 fifties. Babar Azam, ranked third, was dismissed for 14 runs in today’s match. His number of fifty runs is 27. <span;>If Virat Kohli continues his current form, he can become the second batsman after Rohit Sharma to cross the 3500 run mark in the T20 format in the next match
