Yesterday on Friday, Virat Kohli’s vintage innings blew out West Indies and helped the Indian team to achieve the mammoth target of 207 runs in just 18.4 overs. Kohli, who is famous for his chasing capabilities once again proved why the cricket fraternity calls him a champion chaser. Virat Kohli has some mind-blowing stats while in chasing in white-ball cricket, the way he builts in his innings while chasing makes him unique in his own way.
Virat Kohli is known for his aggressive mindset which he uses to dominate the opponent team. Virat Kohli in the post-match presentation said that he is not the one who hits the ball in the air and entertains the crowd. He just tries to maintain his shape and mostly relies on his timing while constructing his innings.
Kohli scored 94 runs in just 50 deliveries with the strike rate of 188. It was a masterclass from the skipper as he showed his elegance filled with anger. He rarely played a ramped shot and built his innings with the help of some delightful cover drives, cuts, and flicks of the wrist.
Here is the list of Virat’s innings while chasing:
The Indian captain is one of the best in the world when it comes to chasing the big totals. In the T-20Is, Virat’s stats in the second innings are unbelievable. He averages 86.76 in just 30 innings and has smashed 16 half-centuries with a strike rate of 135.69 and has scored 1475 runs while chasing the target.
The Indian skipper is yet to score a century in the shorter format but he has still managed to maintain a high average in the T-20Is. Indian fans would definitely expecting a ton from their skipper in the upcoming matches as he continues to shatter records.
The second T-20I of the series will be played tomorrow on Sunday, December 8 in Trivandrum. India would like to get the 2-0 lead and mark another series win against West Indies.
