Former Indian skipper, Virat Kohli, and middle-order batter, Suryakumar Yadav was in terrific form against Hong Kong as the star duo helped Team India score 192/2 on Wednesday in the Asia Cup 2022 clash in Dubai. While Virat scored his 31st T20I half-century, Yadav also was instrumental as he accelerated India’s inning to get them near to a winning total.
In the last over of India’s inning, Suryakumar Yadav managed to amass as many as 26 runs including four sixes to take his side to an extravagant total. After seeing his batting partner’s outrageous effort, even Virat couldn’t hold back his reaction as he came up with a respectful gesture for SKY.
After the end of India’s innings, Virat Kohli bowed in appreciation of the 31-year-old, in a moment of bromance which would leave Indian fans drooling. As soon as the video of that particular gesture from Kohli found its way to the internet, it began to go viral all over social media, like wildfire.
Meanwhile, following up his 35 against Pakistan in India’s Asia Cup opener, former Indian skipper, Kohli on Wednesday struck a fluent 44-ball 59 not out against Hong Kong in Dubai, his first international half-century since a 52 against the West Indies in a T20I in Kolkata on February 18 earlier this year.
Here is the video of Virat Kohli bowing down to Suryakumar Yadav:
Should we bow?
Y̶e̶s̶,̶ ̶h̶e̶'̶s̶ ̶a̶ ̶k̶i̶n̶g̶ Yes, the King himself does!
