Virat Kohli Retirement: Kohli retires from T20Is after winning T20 World Cup 2024

Indian batting great Virat Kohli announced retirement from T20I cricket after winning the T20 World Cup 2024. Kohli was named the Player of the Match in the final of the 2024 World Cup as he scored a brilliant 76 in 59  balls with six fours and two sixes. This knock ensured India posted a 176-run total which they defeated in thrilling fashion.

Virat Kohli has been arguably the greatest modern-day batter in the world and especially dominated the T20 World Cup in his 16-year career. Confirming this decision, Virat Kohli said, “This was my last T20 World Cup, this is exactly what we wanted to achieve. One day you feel like you can’t get a run and this happens, God is great. Just the occasion, now or never kind of situation.” 

“This was my last T20 game playing for India. We wanted to lift that cup. Wanted to Yes I have, this was an open secret. Not something that I wasn’t going to announce even if we had lost. Time for the next generation to take the T20 game forward. It’s been a long wait for us, waiting to win an ICC tournament. You look at someone like Rohit, he’s played 9 T20 World Cups and this is my sixth. He deserves it.”
