“Personally, since I’ve come back from a break where I didn’t touch the bat for the longest time in the 13-14 years I’ve played, a lot of things were put into perspective,” Kohli told Rohit in a chat on BCCI’s official portal after scoring his first T20I century against Afganistan in Asia Cup 2022. He was holding the record of Most Runs In T20 International Career before scoring a Hundred before this match.
The standout issue of that hundred changed into his quit-overs acceleration after having opened the batting. On fifty nine off 40 going into the last 5, he switched gears and scored his next 63 runs off simply 21 balls. There have been no nerves whilst he approached a landmark that had eluded him for 1020 days. On ninety four, he performed a disdainful pull to carry up his century. It become a drought he broke in fashion.
“My aim was to always to play all three formats, and I banked on good cricketing shots,” he said. “I always came to every tournament or series thinking six-hitting is not a big strength of mine. I can [hit sixes] when situation demands, but I’m better at finding gaps and hitting boundaries, so as long as I can hit boundaries, it will still serve the purpose for the team.”
Obviously in T20 cricket we talk about big hitting and all of that. But that [century] was the perfect example of how to craft an innings without focusing so much on the big hitting,” Rohit SHarma, who was conducting the interview, said.
