Virat Kohli's phenomenal six to Pakistan pacer Haris Rauf during India vs Pakistan in T20 World Cup 2022 opener has etched its name in history as one of the greatest single T20 shots of all time. Given the situation in which the six was scored, ICC has rated it above any shot played in the format.
Meanwhile, Bollywood actor Ayushmann Khurrana was seen replicating Virat Kohli's same shot during his appearance in singing reality show while praising a singer's performance. The incident panned out after the singer revealed that the Indian batter and his wife, Anushka Sharma, follow him on Instagram.
"Virat Kohli is a legendary sportsman. He is special and like you. If he is following you, that means you have a lot of talent and potential," said Ayushmann.
While speaking more about it, Ayushmann Khurrana went on stage and imitated Virat's spectacular shot, which went down the ground on the fifth ball of the 19th over. The Indian actor further informed how the Pakistan pacer looked at the shot as it went over his head and the boundary line.

Virat showed mastery in the game as he middled the ball and sent the ball flying into the stands. The stadium and cricket fraternity were in awe of Virat's incredible shot in the game. Notably, that was one of two sixes which changed the course of the game as India needed 28 runs off the last eight balls, with Virat Kohli at the crease and Haris Rauf in the middle of a terrific spell.
The Pakistan pacer had only conceded three runs in the first four balls, and the pressure was mounting on Virat Kohli. However, Virat, who looked in prime form throughout the ICC tournament, brought the best out of him as he smashed two sixes on the trot to bring down the equation.
Eventually, India notched up a thrilling win on the last ball of the match as R Ashwin played a match-winning stroke.
