Virat Kohli and his runs have an outstanding relation against Pakistan. He hardly ever fails to gift his fans some big scores against Pak. Yesterday was nothing new. He smashed his 32nd T-20 half-century. While he was witnessing the loss of wickets from the other side, he still maintained a strike rate of 147.50.

It was the 19th over when Pakistan’s pacer Naseem Shah came to bowl. Deepak Hooda faced the second ball of the over and hit an uppercut. It was a bit late but never mind. The ball went over keeper Rizwan’s head to the long slip. Hooda almost bends his body into a bow while hitting, by finally fell down on the ground failing to keep his balance. The shot however earned him praise from Kohli.

Kohli came applauding Hooda’s shot with his bat. The video gave ample proof of how Kohli enjoyed Hooda’s shot. Kohli. Hooda however couldn’t stand longer. He went off to Naseem Shah’s ball, scoring 16 from 14 balls. It was indeed Virat Kohli who stood tall till the 19th over but got run out by a stunning throw from Asif Ali.

Virat Kohli, the real “Wall” against Pakistan
