IND vs PAK, T20 World Cup 2022: Some stories are made in this beautiful game and there are historic feats that unfold on the field. This game was something and we will carry it to our graves and we will not forget it till the end of our lives. When things looked bleak and all hopes were gone, one member wearing the blues with the number 18 etched on it burdened the hopes of millions and led them through a phase of turmoil. With the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) rising Kohli was painted in blue as R. Ashwin hit the winning runs.

India has been witness to 1983, 2007, and 2011 but the fans right now are numb and are out of words. Be it the ones watching it on the ground or their mobile screens, this match is something that was not worthy of a group stage and deserved much more. When India were reduced to 31/4 at the end of 6.1 overs, the Melbourne Cricket Ground went silent but when Virat started to smack Pakistan, the crowd went berserk and rallied behind the king in his exploits.
With every wicket and with every run, the Melbourne crowd came to a standstill and with every boundary, the crowd came alive. Everytime India and Pakistan play, they create history but this was something that nobody expected. Virat had delivered in Mohali in 2016 and he has now delivered in Melbourne in 2022. Kohli has rated this innings as the best performance of his life and this can't be argued.
