The memories of Virat Kohli inspiring India to a thrilling 4-wicket victory over Pakistan in Sunday’s T20 World Cup 2022 showdown are still fresh in the fans’ minds. The iconic batter hit an unbeaten 82 as India defeated arch-rival Pakistan on the final episode of the match. While Virat Kohli’s entire slap was a spectacle, his twin sixes against Haris Rauf get the most praise from fans on social media. And now a slow-mo video of those two maxima has gone viral.
India appeared to be out of the game in the last three overs, requiring 50 runs. Haris Rauf, who would bowl over in the 19th, was the biggest hurdle to victory for the team. However, what Virat Kohli did on Rauf’s last two balls changed the course of the game.
Kohli skipped two consecutive sixes on the 5th and 6th delivery of Rauf’s to score 16 runs from the last 6 balls. Fans have cherished the video of Kohli’s twin sixes for a long time. But the slow-mo video of the same two shots is even more fascinating.
Here’s the video:

After the game, Kohli even explained that he knew he had to hit two sixes on the last two balls of Rauf’s left or the game would be over for India.
“I thought it was going to be a challenge, but I told Hardik one thing: if we go up against Haris, Pakistani players will panic. When we needed 28 runs from the last 8 balls, I supported myself and said: “I have to hit two sixes,” or we will lose the match,” he said in a chat with the broadcaster star sport.
Another ‘Kohli special’ is expected when India takes on the Netherlands in their 2nd Group 2 match in the T20 World Cup.
