England stunned Pakistan in a thrilling final of the T20 World Cup 2022 at Melbourne Cricket Ground to lift the prestigious title for the second time.

Sam Curran’s brilliant spell and Ben Stokes’s match-winning knock in Melbourne ensured comprehensive victory for the Englishmen as they became only second side to lift the title twice.

The ICC tournament finished on a high note after it produced some incredible performances and upsets throughout. While India suffered a shocking exit from the semi-final stage, legendary batter Virat Kohli finished the ICC tournament as the highest run-getter.

The 34-year-old amassed 296 runs in 6 innings at a staggering average of 98.67, and a strike rate of 136.41. The batter also smashed four fifties in his six innings and became the highest run-getter in the history of the T20 World Cups.

The Indian batter started the ICC tournament with a bang as he played an innings to remember against arch-rival Pakistan to clinch a nail-biting victory in the last over of the match.

Kohli remained unbeaten as he scored 82 runs in 53 deliveries with the help of 4 maximums and 6 boundaries. The batter continued his rich form in the second match of the tournament as he played yet another unbeaten knock of 62 runs in just 44 deliveries against the Netherlands.

India's third match of the tournament didn't go as per the plan as they faltered against South Africa and Virat Kohli too got dismissed after scoring just 12 runs off 11 balls.

However, Team India and Virat Kohli redeemed themselves in the very next match against Bangladesh as the batter smashed yet another half-century by scoring an unbeaten 64 off 44 deliveries.

While Virat Kohli could not do any wonders with the bat against Zimbabwe as he could only add 26 runs on board before getting dismissed by Sean Williams, he looked terrific in the semi-final game against England as he smashed his fourth half-century of the ICC tournament.

However, Virat's 50 off 40 deliveries came in the losing cause as England clinched the semifinal match by 10 wickets.
