Both of them met in the T20 World Cup:
It is known that this was Haris Rauf’s first meeting with the former Indian captain after Virat Kohli’s incredible six in the India-Pakistan match of the T20 World Cup last year. Even though Team India failed to win the T20 World Cup last year, the victory against Pakistan is still fresh in the minds of the fans. In this high-voltage match played at Melbourne Cricket Ground, Virat Kohli’s charismatic performance gave Team India a historic victory on the last ball. Kohli had scored an unbeaten 82 runs on 53 balls.
While Kohli played many brilliant shots in this memorable match, his incredible six off the bowling of Haris Rauf in the 19th over is considered one of the most beautiful shots in the history of cricket. Kohli hit this six over Harris’s head, which was also appreciated by the ICC. At the same time, the cricket expert described the sixes as unprecedented and unbelievable. Even Haris Rauf himself was surprised by this six of Kohli.
