During the T20 World Cup match last year, Virat Kohli hit Haris Rauf for an incredible six straight over the bowler’s head.
Even though Team India didn’t do well at the T20 World Cup last year, the team’s first match against Pakistan is one that fans and former cricketers alike remember fondly.
India won the match with the final ball, thanks to Virat Kohli’s magical performance at the storied Melbourne Cricket Ground.
Kohli guided the team to a successful 160-run chase at the MCG, where he was unbeaten on 82 of 53 deliveries.
The straight six over the bowler’s head on a length delivery was one of the shots from Kohli’s innings that astonished everyone at the time, including the bowler Haris Rauf.
It has been revisited even today. In the 19th over of the game, Kohli made room for himself as he shuffled across the crease and tonked the ball away for a massive six, shocking both Haris and Pakistan captain Babar Azam.
As he made an appearance on Pakistan’s popular show “Hasna Mana Hai,” Haris has now spoken about the shot. Rauf responded, “it hurt,” when a fan inquired about his immediate reaction to the shot.
Naturally, it hurt when that hit a six. Even though I didn’t say anything, it hurt me. “Haris stated, “I thought something bad had occurred.”
The Pakistan speedster went on to say that Kohli probably won’t play the shot again because such shots are very rare in cricket. Anyone who is familiar with cricket is aware of the kind of player he is.
He has now hit that shot; He probably won’t be able to do that again. You can’t hit them multiple times with such shots, which are very uncommon.
Pakistan had reached the tournament’s final, where they were going to lose to England; In contrast, India’s semi-final match against Jos Buttler’s team ended in a 10-wicket defeat.
