Indian badminton star PV Sindhu expressed her admiration for Virat Kohli’s impressive performance in the 2023 World Cup match against New Zealand, which took place on Sunday, October 22. The “Men in Blue” maintained their winning streak in the tournament, securing a victory over the Kiwis with a four-wicket win at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium in Dharamsala. PV Sindhu praised Virat Kohli for leading India in another successful chase, sharing a photo of him on her Instagram story following India’s victory.
New Zealand batted first in the contest after losing the toss and managed to accumulate a total of 273 runs. In this crucial match of the 2023 World Cup, Mohammed Shami made a remarkable debut, showcasing his bowling skills by taking a five-wicket haul. Shami proved to be a formidable force throughout the game. Daryl Mitchell, on the other hand, displayed an exceptional performance by scoring a century, amassing 130 runs for New Zealand.
As a response, India consistently lost wickets at frequent intervals, with most batsmen falling shortly after initiating their innings. Virat Kohli, scored 95 runs, demonstrated composure and skill, anchoring the team’s innings until the 48th over to ensure India’s victory. Regrettably, he was dismissed just five runs shy of a century when the team was on the verge of triumph.
