Stało się to, czego Indie obawiały się najbardziej! Utrata Rohita Sharmy i Virata Kohliego byłaby ostatnią rzeczą, jakiej życzyliby sobie indyjscy kibice w starciu z Pakistanem.

The highly anticipated clash between India and Pakistan in the 2024 T20 World Cup has gotten off to a tense start. After opting to bat first under overcast conditions in New York, India suffered a major blow with the early dismissals of star batsmen Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli within the first three overs.

When Kohli goes, India loses!

This setback has sent a wave of concern through the Indian camp, particularly with Kohli’s exceptional record against Pakistan in past T20 World Cups. Prior to this match, Kohli boasted a remarkable average of over 300 against their arch-rivals in the tournament. However, his dismissal in the 2021 edition coincided with India’s only defeat to Pakistan in the T20 World Cup.

Moreover, this will be the first time Virat Kohli won’t be India’s top-scorer in the T20 World Cup matches against Pakistan.

2024 Not Virat Kohli **

The match is still in its early stages, and the outcome remains uncertain. However, India’s shaky start has undoubtedly handed Pakistan a significant advantage. All eyes are on the middle order to steady the ship and prevent a collapse.

This historical stat adds pressure to the remaining Indian batsmen. Can they overcome the early loss of their batting stalwarts and build a strong total? Only time will tell.
