India’s dream and hope on reaching the final and winning the World Cup, came to an abrupt halt, as the Indian team failed to chase a relatively low score of 239. As in this world cup teams frequently scored 300 plus runs and many even successfully chased them. India themselves posted a score of 352 against Australia in the group stage match.
Virat Kohli, a successful captain, since 2013, watches over his team through many great victories, success, and achievements. He, himself played consistently, though didn’t manage to score any centuries in the group stage but in 9 innings including the semifinal, he scored a total of 443 runs, highest of which is 82 in their key league stage match against the mighty Australians. With an average of 55.375, he hit 38 fours and 2 sixes. Kohli played for his country in 235 ODI’s, scored 11,285 runs averaging 59 plus. His highest innings is 183, which proves that he is capable of playing a long innings even in the ODI.
This present record of world cup 2019’s show he is playing consistently and very much in form. So, it is obvious that his fellow players, management and his countrymen had high hopes for him. So, in a key match like World Cup semifinal, at least a half century is expected of him. Like his consistency in scoring in most of his matches, he is consistently failing in the World Cup semifinals, for example, his three World Cup semi-finals score is 9,1,1 in 2011, 2015 and 2019 World Cups. We don’t know if the pressure of the game caught up with, 1 in the semifinal is very unlikely of him and it the twitter supporters vented their anger his three semifinals score constitute the US emergency service of number 911. We hope that he would be successful in his future endeavors.
