During the course of the competition, Virat Kohli scored four half-centuries, including a fifty against England in the semi-final match. After India was eliminated from the T20 World Cup in the semi-final on Friday, star batter Virat Kohli took to Twitter to share his thoughts. Kohli is currently in first place in the tournament’s scoring standings after tallying 296 runs over the course of six games for an average of 98.66.
During the course of the competition, Kohli scored four fifties, one of which came against England in the semi-final match at the Adelaide Oval on Thursday, when India was defeated by England by ten wickets.
Through his Twitter account, Kohli expressed his belief that despite the “disappointment” that the squad will feel upon returning home, there are still opportunities for the group to learn from their performance in the event and improve moving forward.
According to a tweet posted by Kohli, “We leave Australian shores short of realising our dream and with disappointment in our hearts; nonetheless, we can take back a lot of unforgettable times as a squad and try to get better from here on.”
India’s opening hitter KL Rahul, who had a difficult time with the bat throughout the competition, also responded to the news of the team’s elimination by using an emoji that said “heartbreaking.”
Behind India’s hopes of making it to the final were destroyed by England, Suryakumar Yadav, who was India’s second highest run-getter after Kohli, too composed an emotional statement in response to the defeat.
“Hurtful loss. We will be eternally grateful to our supporters for providing an electric environment whenever and wherever we play. We are grateful for the unwavering support we have shown for one another, and we are proud of the hard work that has been put in by this team and the support staff. I am honoured to represent my country in this sport. We are going to think things over and come back even stronger!” Suryakumar sent out a tweet.
We will be eternally grateful to our supporters for providing an electric environment whenever and wherever we play. We are grateful for the unwavering support we have shown for one another, and we are proud of the hard work that this team and support personnel have put in.
England, having won the toss, elected to bowl first in the match that was being played between India and England.
Hardik Pandya’s knock of 63 and Virat Kohli’s knock of 50 led to India posting 168/6 in 20 overs thanks to their individual contributions.
However, the bowlers were unable to stop the onslaught that England was putting forth, and Buttler and Hales were the driving forces behind England’s easy victory. At this point, the T20 World Cup final will be held on Sunday at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) and will feature England playing against Pakistan.
