Virat Kohli completes the 29th fifty of his T20I career
Virat Kohli, the India skipper, played a valuable knock for his team in the ICC T20 World Cup match against Pakistan. Despite losing regular wickets, the right-handed better kept India in the hunt. His 29th fifty came off 45 balls, which included 4 fours and a six.
He took his time and played some good strokes after setting his eyes in. Virat shared a valuable partnership of 50 runs off 37 balls with Rishabh Pant. The left-handed batter scored 39 runs off 30 runs before he was dismissed by Shadab Khan.
Earlier, India lost Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul early in the innings. The two openers were undone by Shaheen Shah Afridi, who bowled an impressive opening spell against the arch-rivals. Even Suryakumar Yadav failed to score heavily despite looking good during his short stay at the crease. The right-handed batsman scored just 11 runs.
