Kohli reveals favorite cricket moment of his career
Iconic Indian batsman Virat Kohli has been quite straightforward about reminiscing the day when Team India, under the leadership of MS Dhoni, won the 2011 World Cup beating Sri Lanka. The win had ended India’s 28 years wait for the trophy.
In addition to the memorable match, Kohli also has another match that he will always remember. While 2016 World T20 quarter final game India played against Australia in Mohali on March 27. Kohli scored unbeaten 82 which helped the Men in Blue snatch a thrilling six-wicket win in the match and march to semi-final.
“Apart from the 2011 finals, my other favorite match from the atmosphere and importance of the game point of view, would be the 2016 T20 quarter-finals against Australia in Mohali,”
Kohli said while speaking on Star Sports ‘Cricket Connected’ show.
Unfortunately, India had to face a crushing seven-wicket defeat in semi-final at the hands of West Indies.
The cricketing fraternity at the moment remain suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic. And players are busy with the ups and downs of personal and communal cricket’s.
Kohli, the current India skipper, has admitted the ‘magical’ atmosphere will be missing if the cricket season currently stalled by the Covid-19 pandemic resumes in empty stadiums recently.
“It’s quite a possible situation, it might happen, I honestly don’t know how everyone is going to take that because we all are used to playing in front of so many passionate fans,” Kohli said.
“Things will still go on, but I doubt that one will feel that magic happening inside because of the atmosphere that was created. We will play sports how it is supposed to be played, but those magical moments will be difficult to come by,” he added.
But Kohli believes playing without fans in attendance would not dampen the competitive among the teams. “I know matches will be played at a very good intensity. But that feeling of the crowd connecting with the players and the tension of the game where everyone goes through it in the stadium, those emotions are difficult to recreate,” he said.
