VIDEO: "Bhagwan Se Nahi Jeet Sakte" Virat Kohli Gets Emotional In Press Conference

Virat Kohli has stormed back to form and in some style. After recording his 71st international ton in the Asia Cup, Kohli has gone on to play a number of match-winning innings, in the home series against Australia and South Africa before taking the T20 World Cup 2022 by storm.

He brought out his best against Pakistan in India’s Super 12 opener, scoring an unbeaten 53-ball 82 in a tricky chase and helping India win on the last ball. Against the Netherlands, it was a rather much easier affair, but the pitch was two-paced and Kohli dropped anchor along with skipper Rohit Sharma.

He was involved in two partnerships - 73 (56) with Rohit Sharma and 95* (48) with Suryakumar Yadav - eventually finishing with 62* off 44 balls.

Before the match against the Netherlands, Kohli made an emotional and very much spiritual comments in the press conference, keeping in line with how he’s opened up about his struggles with the form in the last couple of years.

Kohli spoke at length about how he plays his game and lives his life, and believes it is the almighty who controls all.

“Main toh life bohot honesty se dekhta hun, toh mujhe yeh cheeze dikhti hai. Toh aisa nhi main bolunga ki mujhe farak nahi padta, lekin aapko sachayi dikhti hai bas. Main utna hi bol skta hun ki aap jab itne samay tak khelte ho, honesty se khetle hu - dene waala upar waala hi hai,” Kohli said in the press conference.

“Main uske aage kuch nahi bol skta. Baaki aap haath pair kitne bhi maar lo; jab usne dena hai tabhi dena hai, aur koi kuch bhi nahi kr skta. Main toh apni life aise hi jeeta hun. Jab tak khel rha hun, main aise hi khelunga,” the former skipper added.

India defeated the Dutch by 56 runs with Suryakumar Yadav bagging the Player of the Match award for his blistering 25-ball 51* knock. With 2 wins in 2 games, India will next face South Africa on Sunday in Perth and look to get one foot in the semi-final.
