After losing the first game on Friday comprehensively, the Indian skipper Virat Kohli was criticized and trolled for his poor batting performance and resting the star Indian opener Rohit Sharma. India was 1-0 down in the bilateral series and made a significant comeback in the second T20I as the hosts beat England by seven wickets.
Kohli smashed the English bowlers in the competitive run chase. Initially, he played the supporting role and kept the scoreboard ticking while Ishan Kishan and Rishabh Pant were clearing the field with ease. After the two well-set batsmen departed, Kohli took the charge and started toying with the English bowlers with minimal risks. The Indian captain scored 73 off 49 deliveries with five fours and three sixes. The three maximums were lauded by his teammates and commentators for his pure timing and elegance. The number three batsman completed his half-century with a sweetly timed six right over the bowler’s head. Kohli displayed the traits of his idol Mahendra Singh Dhoni when he finished the match with a magnificent six on the leg side on Chris Jordan’s bowling.
