The shot has been dubbed as the ‘Shot of the Century’ by the International Cricket Council (ICC). The right-handed batter powered India to a 4-wickets win in the match.
Team India was in a spot of bother chasing 160 runs. They lost four wickets with just 31 runs on the board. Kohli put on a brilliant partnership with Hardik Pandya to help India get out of trouble. During the innings, Kohli slammed two stunning sixes off Haris Rauf to keep with the increasing required rate. Speaking exclusively to Star Sports on ‘Believe: The Diwali Miracle’ show, the veteran batter said,
“I have seen this a lot of times, but these small things in the middle, these are very special because obviously, you have lived these moments but you haven’t seen it again. “
“Just those little moments are something that I feel very nostalgic about, and in a good way. Till this date, I don’t know how I pulled off that shot but it happened,” he added.
