Virat Kohli startled Haris Rauf of Pakistan during the T20 World Cup 2024 with an incredible shot at the MCG.
With just four months to go till the massive event, the T20 World Cup 2024, the countdown has begun. Notably, the USA vs. Canada match will be the first match of the tournament’s ninth edition, which will kick off on June 1 in the West Indies and the USA. The International Cricket Council (ICC) launched a teaser for the T20 spectacular to mark the start of ticket sales for the historic occasion with just four months remaining in the competition.
Several noteworthy events from the last episode were featured in the 30-second teaser that was posted on their social media accounts. Among them was the legendary six that Virat Kohli hit against Haris Rauf at the Melbourne Cricket Ground in the T20 World Cup of 2022. Fans couldn’t contain their excitement when they saw the most revered moment in Indian cricket history in the trailer, which went viral on social media.
During the Pakistani match, Virat Kohli’s six off Haris Rauf came at a critical moment, as India needed to win by 28 runs from the final eight deliveries. Seeing that the game was getting away, Kohli positioned himself to take on Rauf and hit a mind-boggling six straight down the ground on the penultimate delivery of his spell.
On the very next ball, the batting sensation ripped him for another maximum, bringing the equation down to 16 needed off 6. Ravichandran Ashwin scored the game-winning runs with the final ball as India won the exciting match. Kohli finished his innings unbeaten at 82* (53) after hitting six fours and four sixes.
Indian supporters will be hoping that Kohli maintains his incredible form in the next edition, as India kicks off their campaign against Ireland on June 5. On June 9, in New York, the cricket community will be waiting for the most anticipated match of the competition—India versus Pakistan.
