Virat had a great day on his birthday. Especially as a captain, Virat Kohli, who was losing 6 consecutive T20 toss, finally won the toss on his birthday and he decided to field. This was the second T20 toss of the year which Virat Kohli won.
Team did a great job: Virat
Indian captain Virat Kohli said it was a tremendous performance after India’s eight-wicket win in the World Cup match against Scotland on Friday and India’s net run rate surpassed Afghanistan.
Virat said after the match, ‘Like the previous match, we achieved our target this time too. We understood how important the toss was, we won the toss and went ahead. We were thinking 120 or 130, but it was good that Scotland didn’t even reach 100. We had net run rate in mind and we went with it. As far as we batted in the practice match, we played well in the powerplay, we just wanted to bowl well so that the batsmen do their job. Shami bowled well, not only the bowlers of the entire team.
When asked about the gift of victory received on his birthday today, Virat laughed and said, “As far as my birthday is concerned, my family is with me, my team is with me, so that is absolutely what matters most to me.” ‘
Even before the start of this tournament, Virat Kohli had announced that he was leaving the captaincy of T20. Monday’s match against Namibia may be his last T20 match as captain, but he has garnered many flags as a T20 captain and will continue to be associated with the team as a batsman.
