Former Indian captain Virat Kohli shared an emotional note after Team India were knocked out of the ICC T20 World Cup 2022. The Men in Blue went down against England by 10 wickets in the semi-finals at the Adelaide Oval on Thursday, November 10.
Team India suffered a heavy 10-wicket defeat against Jos Buttler and Co. in the knockout game. Buttler (80*) and Alex Hales (86*) ran riot with the bat to chase down the 169-run target in just 16 overs.
Virat Kohli, who scored a fine half-century in the fixture, looked devastated after the game. The former Indian captain shared an emotional post before leaving Australia on Friday, November 11. Taking to Instagram, Kohli wrote:
“We leave Australian shores short of achieving our dream and with disappointment in our hearts but we can take back a lot of memorable moments as a group and aim to get better from here on.
“Thank you to all our fans who turned up in huge numbers throughout to support us in the stadiums. Always feel proud to wear this jersey and represent our country 🇮🇳💙.”
