It would be hard to overemphasize the prowess of the Indian captain Virat Kohli. Time and again, the run machine has proved his mettle by scoring crucial runs and helping the men in blue register countless victories. Recently, Virat produced another special innings to become the highest run-scorer in T20I cricket.
During India’s 2nd T20I game against South Africa at Mohali, the Delhi born portrayed his fascination with chasing totals as he scored an unbeaten half-century and sealed a comfortable 3-wicket win for India.
The innings of substance also witnessed Virat swelling his T20I average back to 50, becoming the only batsman to average in excess of 50 in all the three formats of the game.
Seeing his progress delighted a massive chunk of cricketing fraternity including former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi. While Indo-Pak relations are currently plagued with war hysteria, the talismanic all-rounder didn’t let any of the negativity affect the sports community. Moreover, Afridi wished success to Virat Kohli as he wants to see the majestic batsman continue entertaining cricket fans across the globe.
