Virat Kohli got emotional in the post match presentation after the match against Afghanistan in the Asia Cup 2022.
India and Afghanistan both had a tough run in the tournament, as both teams managed to top their respective groups in the earlier rounds but lost both their matches in the Super 4 stage. They played their last match against one another at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.
But India ended the night on a high, as the star Indian batsman Virat Kohli, finally managed to notch up a century, he scored a fantabulous 122* runs of just 61 balls. This was his 71st Century in international cricket and his first since the pink ball test match in India against Bangladesh back in November 2019.
“Firstly I am grateful for how the day went today. Time away from the game gave me a good chance to sit back and observe a lot of things about me. I mentioned one special person – Anushka – who stood by me through these tough times and I mentioned her as she has seen the absolute raw side of me throughout all these months. She was the one putting things in perspective for me, kept giving me the right kind of guidance, vision moving forward and I came back into the system as a relaxed person. It was just about enjoying the game, understanding the game and what God blessed you with.” , stated an emotional Virat Kohli
