“October 23, 2022 will always be special in my heart. I had never felt such energy in a cricket match before. What a blessed evening it was,” Virat Kohli wrote in the post’s caption.
However, the Delhi-born cricketer star’s post has left fans wondering if he is set to retire from T20I. Former Indian teammate Virat Kohli and legendary skipper MS Dhoni also announced his retirement two years ago on Instagram.

Virat Kohli hit a splendid 82 from 53 deliveries to help the Men in Blue to a famous win at Melbourne’s iconic cricket ground. Virat Kohli’s innings have been called the greatest T20 blow by former Australia captain Greg Chappell and several other game legends.
Calling Virat Kohli India’s greatest hitter of his time, Greg Chappell said his innings legitimize T20 cricket.
“The Bhagavad Gita is the holy book which is the synthesis of Hinduism. Literally translated, it means “the song of God”. Kohli played an innings that was as close to a ‘song of God’ as ever in T20 cricket,” Greg Chappell wrote in his column for Australian newspaper ‘Sydney Morning Herald’.
“Like a cat playing with a new skein of yarn, Kohli teased and then expertly sliced up an excellent Pakistani bowling attack until it was unraveled, exhausted and exposed on the MCG’s green carpet.” “…It was a round that showcased the art of batting like none I have seen in a lifetime watching cricket,” added the former Team India manager.
“Ironically, it was also the innings that legitimized T20 cricket as, dare I say it, an art form, more so than anything I have seen in the past 15 years. No one can ever again dismiss T20 cricket as mere entertainment,” noted Greg Chappell.
“None of the greats of bygone eras could have dismembered an opponent so brutally without compromising the intricacies of stickmanship as Kohli did last Sunday night,” he added.
“Kohli is the most complete Indian drummer of my time. Only the greatest of champions has the courage and intelligence to carry his imagination beyond the mortal plane. Kohli has that. Perhaps only Tiger Pataudi has come close. transcend a similar stratosphere,” explained Greg Chappell.
Greg Chappell even cited the example of the legendary Adam Gilchrist to claim that Virat Kohli’s strike against Pakistan was even more enjoyable than the southpaw’s exploits in the past.
“I can think of many of the best hitters in the modern game who could have won a similar victory, and probably have, but none have ever done it with pure batting skill like Kohli did against Pakistan. “, did he declare.
“Only Adam Gilchrist has come close to it in the past, but it was even more esoteric than some of his more sublime endeavors. It was simply impossible to look away. It gave me immense pleasure because it been played by one of the staunchest supporters and representatives of Test cricket in the past 145 years,” the Australian great illustrated.
“It was the day that T20 cricket came of age, and the biting game was played between two of the game’s young long-form nations in front of 90,000 delighted fans, most of whom were thousands of miles away from home. land of their birth,” said Greg Chappell.
“We’ve known for some time that Kohli is in a rare class, but that’s been done against the backdrop of a pretty meager run over the past few years by his high standards. Few people will have to go through this under Virat’s gaze. Everyone had an opinion; most of it centered around his eyes and/or his technique as having diminished in some way. As someone who has gone down this path, I was pretty sure that was not the case,” he commented.
“It’s probably the best T20 rounds of his career, and it can also be one of the most satisfying in any format. He looked completely at home. He was in his element,” concluded Greg Chappell.
