After going through a tough time with the bat, Virat Kohli has found form in the Asian Cup in the United Arab Emirates. He amassed 276 points in five games with an astonishing average of 92.2, including a first ton of T20I against Afghanistan. Kohli also made crucial contributions during India’s T20I series against South Africa and Australia at home.
King Kohli is the mainstay of India’s batting unit for the T20 World Cup Down Under. His vast experience and ability to come alive in big moments will prove vital for India. Kohli has a good T20I record in Australia as he scored 790 runs at an average of 52.9 while breaking eight half-centuries. He hopes to cap off the tournament with another scintillating Kohli special and lead India to an ICC trophy after a long hiatus.
The team led by Rohit Sharma are heading to the World Cup after a long preparation. The Indian team has played T20Is in England, West Indies, Ireland and the United Arab Emirates. They also played two home series against Australia and South Africa.
India will feature in Group 2 of the ICC tournament alongside arch-rivals Pakistan, Bangladesh, South Africa and two qualifying nations. On October 23, they will play their tournament opener against Pakistan at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
