Team India may not have had a good T20 World Cup campaign last year, but one match fondly remembered by fans and former cricketers alike is the team’s opener against Pakistan.
Virat Kohli had a great night at the Legendary Melbourne Cricket Ground, which leads India to victory on the last ball of the match.

Kohli was undefeated with 82 off 53 balls as he led the side to a successful 160-run chase at the MCG.
The six-in-a-row that Kohli hit on a long pitch over the bowler’s head at one point in his innings surprised everyone, including Haris Rauf, and is still talked about today.

In the 19th over of the match, Kohli opened up space for himself by moving across the wicket and taking the ball away for a huge six, shocking both Haris and Pakistan captain Babar Azam.
“Virat Kohli’s timing was perfect and it turned out to be a six”: Haris Rauf
Haris recently discussed the recording while appearing on the well-known Pakistani program ‘Hasna Mana Hai’. Rauf responded that the shot “hurt” him when a supporter inquired about his initial reaction to the shot.
“Of course it hurt when that went for a six. I didn’t say anything, but it hurt me personally. I thought something wrong had happened,” said Harris Rauf.
“Anyone who knows cricket knows what kind of player he is. He’s played that shot now, I don’t think he can do that again. Shots like that are quite rare, you can’t hit them over and over again. His timing was perfect and it became a six. Rauf said.
With a match-winning effort of 82 runs in 53 balls, with 6 fours and 4 sixes, Virat Kohli saved India from defeat by Pakistan. Kohli hit two stunning sixes against Harris Rauf to help India win the match as they needed 28 runs in the last 8 balls.
