‘Bow down to the king’- Twitter goes bonkers as Virat Kohli scores a splendid second consecutive fifty against Pakistan

Virat Kohli

They speak that form is temporary, and class is permanent and that applies to the GOAT, Virat Kohli. Virat Kohli had a lull of form before coming into the Asia Cup as he was not able to get runs in the limited overs series in England. Even before that, he did not look at his usual best and was not among the runs in the Test series in England. Everyone in the cricket fraternity was calling for Kohli to be either benched or get an exit pass from Team India.

Virat Kohli was given the much-needed rest that he had asked for and was not in the teams that toured Zimbabwe or the West Indies. They were reports emerging that the selectors wanted Virat Kohli to play in the Zimbabwe series initially and that he will be required to cut short his break and be there but, in the end, all those reports were quashed, and Virat Kohli was given the much-needed break.

Before the Asia Cup began, he looked good in the nets and there were videos of him hitting good shots in the nets. Virat Kohli started the Asia Cup on a great note, hitting a valuable 35 runs against arch-rivals Pakistan. It was a good innings, but he could not go on to score a big knock.

In the match against Hong Kong, he scored a good knock of 59 from 44 balls. Though the innings was slightly slow it was very impactful. People were still saying that Virat was still not at his fluent best. In today’s second round against the arch-rivals, he put all the doubters to rest as he essayed a beautiful knock of 60 from 44 which held India’s innings together and got them to a good score of 181 for 7.

Twitter was buzzing and admiring Virat Kohli’s amazing knock. Let us take a look at the reactions here-
