Due to lockdown, cricketers are going live and having chat sessions and interacting with fans on social media. The Indian captain Virat Kohli also joined a live session for Star Sports and revealed his all-time favorite match of his entire career.
The captain of the Indian cricket team Virat Kohli names the final of World Cup 2011 against Sri Lanka as his favorite match of his career. With this match, he also mentioned his inning against Australia in the Quarterfinal of T20 World Cup 2016.
Virat Kohli joined Star Sports for a show “Cricket Connected” with Jatin Sapru. During the show, he tells Jatin that the Wankhede World Cup final is special in his life. India won the World Cup in 2011 under the captaincy of MS Dhoni after 28 years. Virat Kohli didn’t score well in that match but winning the World Cup trophy remains his favorite memory.
With this, he also mentioned his match-winning knock against Australia in the 2016 T20 World Cup Quarterfinal as a memorable moment. In that match played at Mohali, Virat Kohli scored unbeaten 82 runs in just 51 balls. With Virat Kohli’s inning, India chased down the target of 161 runs with 5 balls remaining and entered into the Semi-Finals of T20 World Cup 2016.
Virat Kohli mention his favorite cricket moment
“Apart from the 2011 finals, my other favorite match from the atmosphere and importance of the game point of view would be the 2016 T20 quarter-finals against Australia in Mohali,”
By the way, the Indian team had a big 7-wicket defeat from the West Indies team in the semi-finals. The West Indies team defeated England to become the world champions.
Due to COVID 19, the situation is very difficult and the chances of cricket being played are less visible. Matches are likely to be held in the vacant stadium in the future. IPL has been already postponed by BCCI for an indefinite period and T20 World Cup is also under threat.
