After winning the Player of the Match award for his remarkable 94-ball 122 knock, India’s batting sensation, Virat Kohli, expressed his readiness to return to the pitch on Tuesday, emphasizing how playing Test cricket contributes to his recovery and endurance, allowing him to play on consecutive days.

Kohli’s latest century, achieved in just 94 balls, was not only a pivotal factor in India’s victory but also set numerous records. He accelerated from 50 off 55 balls to an unbeaten 122, smashing an impressive 72 runs off the final 39 balls. This exceptional performance occurred during the rain-interrupted Asia Cup Super Four clash against arch-rivals Pakistan. Batting alongside KL Rahul, Kohli exhibited his top form, dominating Pakistan’s bowling attack.

In a post-match presentation, Virat Kohli expressed his determination to maintain his fitness and recovery regime. He stated, “It is the first time I have done anything like this in 15 years of cricket. Luckily we are Test players, so we know how to come back the next day and play. Recovery is crucial.” Kohli, who turns 35 in November, emphasized the importance of taking care of his physical condition, particularly considering the challenging conditions during the match.

KL Rahul’s performance also drew significant praise from Kohli, as Rahul marked his return from a five-month injury layoff with a remarkable century, scoring 111 runs. Kohli emphasized their partnership, saying, “Both KL and I are conventional players. When you have him batting the way he was and me playing, it’s tough to break these partnerships because we don’t play fancy shots.” This partnership not only benefited the team but also created a memorable moment for Indian cricket.

Virat Kohli’s vintage performance, coupled with KL Rahul’s stellar century, led India to an imposing total of 356/2 against their arch-rivals, Pakistan, in the Asia Cup Super Four clash. Furthermore, Kuldeep Yadav’s outstanding five-wicket haul during Pakistan’s innings played a pivotal role in India’s comprehensive 228-run victory over their traditional rivals.

With this resounding win, India secured the top spot in the Asia Cup 2023 Super 4s table. Their next challenge awaits as they face Sri Lanka on Tuesday at the same venue, R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo.
