Virat played a brilliant innings, yet did not wave the bat after scoring a half-century… what was the reason


Highlights

New Delhi. Former Indian team captain Virat Kohli completed his half-century in the final match of the T20 World Cup 2024 being played on a difficult pitch against South Africa. This is King Kohli's first half-century in this World Cup. Earlier, he was seen struggling throughout the tournament. At one point, Team India lost three important wickets for just 34 runs in the match. After this, Virat took the responsibility of scoring runs and completed his half-century. Kohli did not move his bat even after scoring a half-century.

It is natural to have this question in mind that what happened that Virat did not pick up the bat despite leading the team to victory in the match. The reason behind this is also very important. Actually, even though Virat handled the team in the match, he also scored runs at a very slow pace. He was trying to hit big shots in a few overs before the half-century, but he could not do so. Virat could not hit a boundary on 44 consecutive balls. This is the reason why Virat was probably disappointed with himself in this difficult match.

After scoring a half-century, Virat Kohli scored a half-century against Kagiso Rabada on the first ball of the 18th over. Earlier, the last boundary from his bat came against Keshav Maharaj on the fourth ball of the fourth over. However, after completing his half-century, Virat played one fiery innings after another. In the 18th over, he hit a six and a four. After this, in the very next over, he again hit a six and a four. Virat was caught out while trying to play a big shot after scoring 76 runs off 69 balls in the match.
