India vs Pakistan: Team India, on Sunday, started its T20 World Cup 2022 campaign with a sensational four-wicket win over Pakistan. Kohli’s unbeaten 83-run knock helped the Men in Blue pull off nothing less than a miracle at the jam-packed Melbourne Cricket Ground. Following team India’s historic win, skipper Rohit Sharma hailed Virat Kohli, calling his innings against Pakistan as the former skipper’s best ever. Rohit also said that India starting its WC campaign with a win will give them lots of confidence.
“Those two guys (Kohli and Pandya) are experienced. Staying calm and taking the game deep was very critical. Good for our confidence. Always crucial to get off the mark like this. We were in no position to win this. The way we won that’s more pleasing for us. Hats off to Virat for the way he batted, has to be the best innings he has played for India. I would like to thank everyone, it’s wonderful to see. Their support for us is very, very crucial wherever we go,” Rohit Sharma said in a post-match presentation.
Rohit remarked that this victory will give them a lot of confidence and that it is always crucial to get off to a good start.
“I was in the dressing room. I don’t have any words left. You got to expect something like this in a game like this. We wanted to stay in the game for as long as possible. That crucial partnership was a game-changing moment for us. The pitch had something in it. There was a nice carry. Some swing and seam. Good to see from the bowling perspective. They had a good partnership (Iftikhar and Masood) after that. They batted well towards the end as well. But we knew we had to bat out of our skin to chase this,” he added.
