Virat Kohli Tore Apart His Critics After The Match Against Pakistan

Virat Kohli

A lot was written and said about Virat Kohli's form ahead of the ongoing Asia Cup 2022, however, the batting maestro has managed to silence his critics with his performances with the bat. In the three games so far, Virat has scored 154 runs with his highest score being 60 which came in the Super 4 stage against Pakistan on Sunday. It won't be wrong to say that the batting superstar is back in full form in the ongoing Asia Cup 2022. The Indian side lost the contest in a thriller by five wickets and they will now square off against Sri Lanka on Tuesday at the same venue.

While the Indian side lost the game, Virat Kohli stole all the limelight with his terrific performance with the bat. Virat Kohli smashed his 32nd half-century on Sunday and he got to the milestone with a stunning six. Virat smashed 60 from 44 balls as he helped the Indian side to post a total of 181 for 7 in the end of 20 overs. His knock was laced with 4 boundaries and a six, where he anchored the Indian innings.

After the match, Virat addressed a press conference, where he talked about many things including his lean patch. While this has been long and tough phase for Virat, he declared that he found genuine support only from former Indian captain MS Dhoni. Virat Kohli has never shied away from showing his appreciation of his former captain MS Dhoni, whether by tweeting in the midnight about his IPL innings or an even random  Instagram post going into a big tournament.

Now Virat Kohli, who has already resigned from India's Test captain earlier this year, revealed how MS Dhoni was the only one who reached out to him even during his most difficult days. He said:

"When I left Test captaincy, I only received a message from one person and I have played with that person in the past. That person is MS Dhoni, anyone else did not message me. Many people have my number, and there are many people who give me suggestions on the TV. There was just MS Dhoni who messaged me, many people have my number, but they did not text me. When you have genuine respect and connection with someone, you are able to see that because there is security from both sides," 

He added: "I don't want anything from him and he does not want anything from me. I was never insecure from him and he was never of me. I can just say that if I want to say something to someone, I will reach out individually. Even if you want to help. If you want to give a suggestion to me in front of the TV or the whole world, it does not hold any value to me. You can talk 1-1, I see things with utmost honesty. It is not like I do not care, but you see the things how they are. God gives you everything, only God helps you achieve success and it is all in his hands,"
