New Delhi. When Virat Kohli was playing against South Africa in the final match of T20 World Cup 2024, many questions were being raised about his form. This is also natural, because only 75 runs came from his bat in the first 7 matches. Today King Kohli led the team to victory by scoring 76 runs on a difficult pitch against South Africa in the final of T20 World Cup 2024. With this, Team India made the highest score ever in the history of T20 World Cup final.

Today, Team India batted for the stipulated 20 overs against South Africa and scored 176 runs for the loss of seven wickets. Earlier, the highest score in the final match was made by the Australian team during the T20 World Cup 2021. Then this team played an innings of 173 runs against New Zealand. In the same match, New Zealand batted first and scored 172/4, which was chased by the Kangaroos. The West Indies team comes third in this list. During the World Cup 2016, this team scored 161 runs for the loss of six wickets at Eden Gardens in Kolkata.

Virat's slow half century
Virat hit three brilliant fours in the very first over. However, he changed his gear after three wickets fell in a very short time. He batted cautiously and completed his half-century in 48 balls. In the end, he again played a fiery innings. Virat scored 76 runs in 59 balls with the help of six fours and two sixes in the very first match. This is the second slowest half-century from India in the history of T20 World Cup.

Virat missed out on breaking Williamson's record
If we talk about scoring the most runs in the T20 World Cup final, then Kane Williamson is at the forefront in this matter. He played an innings of 85 runs against Australia in the 2021 World Cup. In the 2016 World Cup, West Indies' Marlon Samwal also played an innings of 85 runs against England. Samwal is also at number three, he scored 78 runs against Sri Lanka in the 2012 T20 World Cup final. Mitchell Marsh has played an innings of 77 runs in the 2021 T20 World Cup final. Virat Kohli is at number 5 in this list.

Joins Sangakkara-Semwal's club
With this half-century, Virat Kohli has joined the special club of Sri Lanka's Kumar Sangakkara and West Indies' Marlon Samuel. Both of them are the only batsmen who have scored more than one half-century in the T20 World Cup final. Today Virat has also made this record in his name. Earlier, Virat had played an innings of 77 runs against Sri Lanka in the 2014 T20 World Cup final.
