Virat Kohli continues to impress with the bat in the T20 World Cup
Kohli’s purple patch in the ongoing showpiece T20 event continued against Bangladesh at the Adelaide Oval. Riding on his unbeaten 64 off 44 balls, a knock laced with eight boundaries and one six, India posted 184/6 in 20 overs. KL Rahul also made a useful contribution, scoring a 32-ball 50.
The former Indian captain played a scintillating 82*-run knock during India’s opening encounter against arch-rivals Pakistan. He followed it up with an unbeaten 62 against the Netherlands.
Virat Kohli is currently the highest run-scorer in this edition of the T20 World Cup. He has mustered 220 runs, including three half-centuries, in four matches at an average of 220.
Fans will want him to continue the blistering form as the Men in Blue look to lay their hands on the coveted T20 World Cup trophy.
