Some knocks in cricket remain forever in the hearts of cricketing fans. One such knock was of Virat Kohli’s. His superb match-winning innings in a close encounter against arch-rival Pakistan. Recently Virat posted an Instagram post describing it as one of the best knocks.

Virat’s knock against Pakistan

The atmosphere was already thrilling as it was India Pakistan. Both the teams were in good form. Just before a few days, they had 2 encounters in Asia Cup and both teams won one match. The atmosphere of revenge on the field was set as during the 2021 world cup edition, Pakistan handed an excellent defeat to Men in Blue. As every Ind Pak match turns out, it was also the last ball thriller.

India lost their openers at a low score and were four-wicket down at a low score. All the good batsmen were in the dugout. This is when Virat and Hardik stitched a good partnership and took the team beyond the finishing line. Virat scored a knock of 82 not out worth cherishing. He played some good shots out of which 2 sixes against Haris Rauf were worth remembering. He took the match to the last over and finished it easily. He even explained that this knock was equally important for him with the match he played against Australia in World Cup 2016 in Mohali. The level of excitement in this match was on another level.

His Instagram caption,

“October 23rd 2022 will always be special in my heart. Never felt energy like that in a cricket game before. What a blessed evening that was.”
