In the afternoon match, Afghanistan’s captain, Hashmatullah Shahidi, won the toss and chose to bat first. India introduced Shardul Thakur into their playing XI, replacing Ravichandran Ashwin.
While on the field in the afternoon sun, Virat Kohli, with his vibrant energy, aimed to lift the morale of both his teammates and the fans in the stadium. A fan posted a brief video on X, featuring Kohli showing off his dance moves during the game.

Virat Kohli has been in excellent form ever since he smashed those two sixes against Pakistan in the T20 World Cup: Salman Butt
According to former Pakistan opener Salman Butt, Virat Kohli’s exceptional form dates back to his game-changing performance during the 2022 T20 World Cup.
In a tense situation where India required 28 runs from eight balls, Kohli delivered by smashing two remarkable sixes at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).
In his most recent video on YouTube, Salman Butt mentioned:
“Virat Kohli has been at his best since he hit those two sixes against Pakistan in the T20 World Cup. That was a huge comeback, and it came under extreme pressure.”
”He was under extreme pressure in the game against Australia as well, but he delivered. People who think Kohli is finished should know what value he brings to the team, especially while chasing.”
Salman lauded Kohli and KL Rahul for their composed and game-winning partnership against Australia in Chennai, especially after the top order had a feeble collapse. He added:
“The partnership of Kohli and Rahul was exceptional. They played defensively when they were under pressure, relying on singles and doubles. They didn’t try to be overly aggressive. The one thing to learn from this partnership is that they didn’t want to leave it to other batters.”
