Former India captain and batting stalwart Virat Kohli’s run as opener isn’t going as planned for the Rohit Sharma-led side in the T20 World Cup 2024. After a poor debut as opener, where he departed after a four-ball stay, he once again departed after scoring in single digits in match against Pakistan at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York.

After being invited to bat first, Virat Kohli gave away his wicket off a Naseem Shah delivery. During the second over of the Indian batting inning, Naseem bowled a well wide off and Kohli, who was on strike decided to chase  it. The 35-year-old just mistimed the shot, gifting his wicket as the ball went straight into Usman Khan’s hands.

As Kohli walked off the field, he seemed visibly upset with his shot selection on a tricky pitch in New York. Not only this, his wife, Bollywood celebrity Anushka Sharma also looked disappointed at Kohli’s dismissal, and the video of Anushka Sharma’s reaction is now going viral on social media.  Check the top betting trends on the  best betting sites in India  and  Mostbet Promo Code .

After winning the toss, Babar Aam elected to field first. Moreover, the Men in Green also called in for a change in the Playing XI from their previous match as they called in Imad Wasim as out-of-form wicketkeeper-batter Azam Khan’s replacement. 

“We will bowl first because of the weather and moisture in the pitch. The conditions suit us, we have four fast bowlers. We will try to use it our best. Past is past, we are looking forward to today’s match, we are ready and will give our 100%. Always a big game, our confidence is always high for India vs Pakistan. Azam Khan is resting,” he said.
