Team India’s legendary batsman and former captain Virat Kohli. Virat Kohli single-handedly won many matches for Team India. However, Virat could not perform according to his level in the semi-finals of the ICC T20 World Cup. Virat scored a total of 75 runs in 7 matches till the semi-finals. But in the final, when Team India was in trouble, Virat played an important innings against South Africa. The special thing is that Virat did exactly what Team India captain Rohit Sharma and head coach Rahul Dravid had predicted before the final.

The entire tournament before the final was very disappointing for Virat. Virat’s 75 runs in 7 innings did not include a single half-century. Virat had to struggle for every run. After the semi-final against England, captain Rohit was asked about Virat’s performance. On this, Rohit said that ‘maybe he is saving all his runs for the final.’ Whatever Rohit said, Virat proved to be true in the last round.

When Team India was in trouble, Virat scored 76 runs in 59 balls against South Africa. Virat’s innings included 6 fours and 2 sixes. But even after this, a question mark was raised on Virat’s innings, the reason is the strike rate. This also proved to be the slowest half-century of Virat’s T20 career. Meanwhile, Virat scored 151 runs with 1 half-century in 8 innings in this T20 World Cup.

South Africa Playing XI: Quinton de Kock (wicketkeeper), Reeza Hendricks, Tristan Stubbs, Heinrich Klaasen, David Miller, Marco Jansen, Keshav Maharaj, Kagiso Rabada, Anrique Norkhia and Tabraiz Shamsi.

Team India’s playing XI: Rohit Sharma (captain), Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant (wicketkeeper), Suryakumar Yadav, Shivam Dubey, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Arshdeep Singh, Kuldeep Yadav and Jasprit Bumrah.
