Virat Kohli is been an interesting, talented and handsome player in Indian cricket team. He is someone on whom Indian team could rely, because of his good batting performances earlier. Keeping up with his batting, he sometimes could become very aggressive or sometimes very steady and sensibly. Depends on situation!
However, all Indian batsmen are capable of chasing big targets on any ground, because they’re good at it. Maybe that’s because of their captain’s mind or all of them are sensible with chasing plans.
In Asia Cup 2012, it was a 5th match of the tournament between two rivals; India and Pakistan. Nasir Jamshed and Mohammad Hafeez took a start wonderfully as Pakistan batted first. Both of them stayed with a huge partnership of 224 runs, which helped Pakistan to set a target of 330 for India to chase in 50 overs. Quiet defendable but not impossible to chase. Fifty Fifty!
However, India took a energizing start as Sachin Tendulkar first started to play briskly and scored 52 off 48 balls. After Gambhir’s wicket, Virat Kohli came to the crease and dear, he showed some entertaining stuff with back-to-back boundaries. He played an fantastic innings for India! He and Tendulkar, both stayed on the pitch!
As anticipated, he took the game in favor of India somehow. He scored 183 off 148 balls in which he hit 22 fours and 1 six. Thrilling batting! At the time when his wicket was taken, it wasn’t so difficult to win the game because there were plenty of wickets left for India behind. Kohli did his job and played an inspirational innings which turned the game into a victory for them against Pakistan. You can watch his batting highlights in a video below.
Sometimes, when a batsman makes his mind, no bowler can take him out. It all depends on a batsman how he plays. Virat Kohli appeared to be an interesting player and absolutely, he is a game winner.
