Virat Kohli showered with wishes and praises on 34th birthday: Unmatched passion and dedication
Former Indian skipper, Virat Kohli, turned 34 years old on Saturday, November 5. On the auspicious occasion, the Delhi-born batter conjured praises from every nook and corner of the cricket fraternity.
Kohli has been in sublime form in recentl times. The veteran has already won two Player of the Match awards in T20 World Cup 2022. Starting with, he played a masterful 92-run knock against Pakistan that helped India beat Pakistan by four wickets at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground.
Thereafter, he played a 62-run knock against Scott Edwards' Netherlands, although it was Suryakumar Yadav, who won the Player of the Match award for his unbeaten 51-run knock off 25 balls.
Kohli made a promising start against South Africa as well, but got out to Lungi Ngidi at the Perth Stadium. The right-hander played a crucial 64-run knock against Shakib Al Hasan's Bangladesh at the Adelaide Oval to restamp his authority.
Prior to the Asia Cup 2022 in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Kohli wasn't in the greatest of forms. However, his maiden century against Afghanistan showed that he wasn't out of gas by any stretch of the imagination.
Kohli went on to become the second-highest run-scorer in the tournament after Pakistan's Mohammad Rizwan.
Kohli, recently, became the first Indian to score 1000 runs in T20 World Cups. The icing on the cake was that he also became the leading run-scorer in the history of the championship, surpassing Sri Lanka's Mahela Jayawardene. Virat is also on the verge of becoming the first batter to score 4000 runs in T20Is. He will have the chance of getting to the milestone when India face Zimbabwe on November 6 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
On his birthday, the likes of Hardik Pandya, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, Dinesh Karthik, Mayank Agarwal and a number of other players, former and current, wished him.
