Indian skipper Virat Kohli left his T20 captain on Wednesday to focus more on his batting. The 32-year-old boy learned batting skills in the shortest form of the game. Before he arrived in the international scene, fans thought the T20 batting would be raw and explosive, but Kori changed it all. Over time, he changed gears during the dying stage of the game. Here are five of his best T20I knocks.
Why Rohit Sharma is the front runner to take over the T20I captain from the Virat Kohli Post World Cup
82 * vs Australia, T20 World Cup, 2016
Acclaimed as one of the best T20 knocks, Kori surpassed Australia in a brute force attack at Mohari. India chasing 162 with a virtual knockout was 49/3 when Kori left. He stayed calm and didn’t take any risks until he defeated James Faulkner in 19 runs. This was followed by Nathan Coulter Nile with 16 runovers, and the Indian match was almost sealed.
94 * vs West Indies, Hyderabad, 2019
The place and year are different, but the thinking pattern is the same. India chased Mammoth 208 and won. At that time, Virat Kohli came in with the great modern players of his career. Despite the pressure on the scoreboard, he didn’t shoot immediately from the word “go.” He couldn’t even find the middle at first. But when he found his rhythm, he saw another person with him. He quickly picked up his gear and reached the 90’s, but unfortunately he couldn’t reach the century of course. He was so charged that he even tried to imitate Windy’s pacemaker Keslick Willimas. This sight will be memorable for a long time.

72 * vs South Africa, T20 World Cup, 2014
This inning gave the world a glimpse of King Kori or perhaps what’s to come! India, who played in the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup, stared at Barrel until Kori won an unlikely victory. Men in Blue have required 93 offs in the last 10 innings, Kori knocked off 16 to 17 offs to finish at 72 *, and the final 55 runs ended with 28 balls.
90 * vs Australia, Adelaide, 2016
Kori finished third in the fifth round, helping India make a total of 188/3 large builds, which was too much for Australia. His 50 people appeared with 33 balls. He smashed 40 in the next 22 and surpassed the host.
