It was evident that this would be Virat’s day from the very first ball when he played that cover drive.
Virat and Faf both looked in total control, they not only played many big shots but also ran rather well between the wickets to build a successful partnership.

This 💯 from Virat Kohli shall serve as an advice that you can use data all you want but when you see it for Virat then you can just use a caveat that you are looking at the best batter in the word and he shall always remain out of the boundaries of your numerical intelligence.

Virat Kohli is perhaps the last batter who doesn't have to change his technique when batting in a T20, ODI, and Test – and can adjust the tempo of his batting as per the needs of the chase. A remarkable skill.
