Former captain Virat Kohli, who came to the press after the defeat of Team India in the Super Four match of the Asia Cup played between India and Pakistan, created a sensation with one of his statements.
Dubai: In the Super Four round of Asia Cup between India and Pakistan on Sunday, Virat Kohli scored 60 runs in 44 balls and returned to the pavilion after being run out. This was Virat’s second consecutive fifty, performing well in the Asia Cup. Virat had earlier also played an unbeaten 59 * against Hong Kong.
Virat played superb in yesterday’s match
Virat continued his good performance in the international T20 once again against Pakistan. Virat scored 35 runs in the first match of the Asia Cup 2022 against Pakistan. But for the second time in the clash of the arch-rivals, he was able to score fifty and returned to the pavilion after scoring 60 runs in 44 balls. This was Virat’s fourth half-century in the ninth innings against Pakistan.
When Virat Kohli came to the press after the defeat of Team India by a margin of 5 wickets against Pakistan, he made a big disclosure on the question of people supporting him in difficult times. This reply of Virat created a sensation in social media. Whose echo may be heard for the next few days.
“When I left Test captaincy, I only received a message from one person and I have played with that person. That person is MS Dhoni, many people have my number, and there are many people who give me suggestions. There was just MS Dhoni who messaged me, many people have my number, but they did not text me. When you have genuine respect and connection with someone, you are able to see that because there is security from both sides,” said Kohli during a post-match press conference.
“I don’t want anything from him and he does not want anything from me. I was never insecure from him and he was never of me. I can just say that if I want to say something to someone, I will reach out individually/ Even if you want to help. If you want to give a suggestion to me in front of the TV or the whole world, it does not hold any value to me. You can talk 1-1, I see things with utmost honesty. It is not like I do not care, but you see the things how they are,” he further added.
Kohli had stepped down from T20 captaincy after the World Cup and then he was removed as the ODI skipper in the same year as selectors wanted the same captain for white-ball formats. Kohli then stepped down as Test captain after a series defeat against South Africa.
