T20 World Cup: Sidhu was thrilled to see Virat Kohli's innings, said this heart-touching thing, know

Navjot Singh Sidhu, a former Indian cricketer and commentator, praised Indian batsman Virat Kohli. Kohli delivered a superb effort in the T20 World Cup final against South Africa. Kohli struck 76 runs in 59 balls, including six fours and two sixes, allowing India to reach 176 runs for seven wickets in 20 overs. India then successfully defended the target, defeating South Africa by seven runs to claim the T20 World Cup title.

Sidhu said, that when it was most needed, when crores of Indians were praying for victory and hoping that we would not choke in the final, Kohli stood like a rock. He stood at the other end and when India's situation was not good, he played a key role in helping the team win the World Cup by performing brilliantly. Even when he scored 38 and 24 runs in this tournament, he did not let the run rate fall. For me, Kohli will always be remembered as a legend. A player who is an inspiration to the people.

Kohli scored 151 runs in eight innings at a strike rate of 112.68 in the T20 World Cup 2024, which includes a half-century. His overall record in this tournament has been impressive. Kohli has scored 1292 runs in the T20 World Cup and his strike rate has been 128.81. Kohli has scored 15 half-centuries in this tournament and is the highest run-scorer in T20 World Cup history.

Kohli decided to retire from T20 Internationals after the T20 World Cup final. In T20 Internationals, Kohli has scored 4188 runs in 125 matches at an average of 48.69 and a strike rate of 137.04, which includes one century and 38 half-centuries. Kohli's best personal score in T20 Internationals is 122 not out.
