In the T20 World Cup 2021, the Indian team will begin their campaign with a match against Pakistan. The blockbuster match, which will be held today (October 24th), will be watched by the entire world. The Indian team consists of purple players like Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah. But in this match, Indian fans will be eyeing captain Virat Kohli particularly.
The biggest reason for this is Virat Kohli's T20 record against Pakistan. Kohli has played three innings in the T20 World Cup against Pakistan so far. In 2012, he scored an unbeaten 78 off 61 balls against the team, including eight fours and two sixes. Virat then scored an unbeaten 36 off 32 balls in 2014. Then, in the 2016 World Cup in India, he hit an unbeaten 55 off 37 balls, including seven fours and a six.
Overall, Virat Kohli has scored an unbeaten 169 off 130 balls against Pakistan in the T20 World Cup so far. No Pakistan bowler has beaten the Indian captain so far. Apart from this, Virat Kohli is also the highest run-scorer against Pakistan in T20 Internationals. Kohli has so far scored 254 runs in six matches at an average of 84.66. Shoaib Malik, on the other hand, is the highest run-scorer against India in the T20 World Cup. Malik has scored just 100 runs in five innings so far at an average of 20. In that case, it has to be said that the Performance of Pakistan batsmen against India in the T20 World Cup has been disappointing. In today's match also, the Indian bowlers are likely to wreak havoc on the Pak team.
