All eyes will be on Virat Kohli and team for the next clash against Netherlands in T20 World Cup in Australia. |

Virat Kohli’s smashing 53-ball 82 helped India register a thrilling four-wicket win over arch-rivals Pakistan to open their T20 World Cup campaign in Australia last year. And despite suffering a crushing 10-wicket defeat at the hands of England, the star batsman’s knock at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).  During the tense chase, Kohli struck two back-to-back sixes off Pakistan pacer Haris Rauf. However, on being asked by a fan during Pakistan's popular show 'Hasna Mana Hai' about that six, pacer Haris Rauf said that such shots are a rare thing in cricket and the India batter won't be able to play that shot again. 

"Of course, it hurt when that went for a six. I didn't say anything but it hurt me personally. I thought something wrong had happened. Anyone who knows cricket knows what sort of a player he is. He has played that shot now; I don't think he can do that again. Such shots are quite rare, you can't hit them again and again. His timing was perfect, and it went for a six," said Rauf.

Kohli was rested from Team India's recently concluded T20I series against Sri Lanka at home, which the hosts won 2-1 on Saturday. The star batsman, along with skipper Rohit Sharma will be back on the field for the three-match series against Sri Lanka, starting on January 10.
