India’s Tremendous Performance and Virat’s Dream Form:
This time the World Cup 2023 is happening in India. The Indian fans are even more excited. India gave a dreamy start to the tournament. In the first match, India met Australia. Indian bowlers dominated the Australian side with their brilliance. They stopped Australia in 199 runs. During the second innings, India had a horrible start. They lost three early wickets. From that end, Virat Kohli rescued India. He played an excellent inning of 85 runs in 116 balls. This knock secured India’s innings in that match.
In the match against Bangladesh, the cricket world witnessed another amazing knock of Virat Kohli. He nailed the show. Virat Kohli played an unbeaten innings of 103 runs in 97 balls. He smashed 6 boundaries and 4 over-boundaries. His outstanding knock secured India’s win. Even in the last match against New Zealand, he showed another masterclass. He scored an amazing 95 runs in 104 balls. He smashed 8 boundaries and 2 over-boundaries. Unfortunately, he missed the century.
Vaugh and Gilchrist’s Words on Kohli:
After those amazing knocks, Kohli is receiving praise all the way. The World is amazed by Virat’s greatness. Michale Vaughan talked about his innings. He said, “ Virat Kohli is in the chase, there’s no one better. It wouldn’t surprise me if he gets a 49th before the final, and his 50th in the final. It is written in the stars. I actually put it on social media- great, great players always arrive in World Cups. It defines their legacies. Look at the footballers, Lionel Messi had to win the World Cup for Argentina, and he did it. Virat has already won a World Cup but you just feel he’s going to drive the Indian team all the way.”
He added, “ I’d love to know how they can be stopped. I can’t see at the minute. Yes, you can get early wickets. But the pitches aren’t going to do much. How are you going to get them 3-4 down quickly? Aussies were the closest to surprise them when they got 3 out early in Chennai, But I don’t see how anyone will get close to them.”
Australian legend Adam Gilchrist praised Virat in all possible ways. He is truly amazed by the greatness of the plaster. He said, “ Just like a well-oiled machine, isn’t he, Virat? He has not even hit full throttle yet, Either. He is just coasting.”
India is in a great form. They are the only unbeaten team in the World Cup. In the next match, they will lock horns with England. England is not in their desired position. They are losing back-to-back games. They will fight hard to win the match.
