Australia’s legendary wicketkeeper, Adam Gilchrist looked really pumped up as he met the Indian Stalwart, Virat Kohli who played a surreal knock against Pakistan in the super-12 stage game of the T20 World Cup. Virat had played a match-winning knock of 82 runs off just 53 deliveries against arch-rivals Pakistan in a crucial match that set the tone for the Indian Team.

Virat Kohli was practicing with the Indian players at the Sydney Cricket Ground on the morning before India’s second game in the World Cup against the Netherlands. The run machine was having a conversation with former South African fast bowler, Dale Steyn who was his ex-teammate at Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). Just as Gilchrist saw Virat, he came to meet him as he looked really pumped up.

It’s worth noting that Virat Kohli was not looking in his prime touch for quite some time. The former Indian skipper scored his 71st century after nearly three years in the Super Four Game of Asia Cup 2022 against Afghanistan.

Right since the beginning of the Asia Cup, Virat has looked at his best again as he played a couple of vital knocks against Asian teams and then carried on his form against Pakistan as he took the game away from them at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
