Virat Kohli was dismissed after scoring 35 runs in 34 balls.
Rohit Sharma returned to the pavilion playing just 12 runs in 18 balls.
India won the match over Pakistan by 5 wickets.

New Delhi. Virat Kohli returned to competitive cricket on Sunday (28 August) after a one-month break. He made a comeback in the Asia Cup 2022 being played in the United Arab Emirates. India defeated arch-rivals Pakistan by 5 wickets in their first match of the tournament. Kohli was playing for India in his historic 100th T20I match. In this match he scored 35 runs in 34 balls. He played his trademark pull shot to show off his old talent, but was dismissed at long off against left-arm spinner Mohammad Nawaz. Gautam Gambhir has fiercely criticized his dismissal like this. Former captain Virat Kohli is trying to find his lost form again.

Chasing the target of 148 runs given by Pakistan, India got off to a bad start. KL Rahul returned to the pavilion without opening the account. Kohli’s catch was dropped on the second ball by Fakhar Zaman at second slip. Had this catch been taken, then even Virat would have returned to zero. In such a situation, former Indian opener Gautam Gambhir has raised questions on Virat’s wicket. In the 10th over, India’s score was 53 for three. Captain Rohit Sharma was out on the last ball of Nawaz’s last over.

Gambhir said in a discussion on Star Sports, “He will be very disappointed, because Rohit Sharma’s wicket had just fallen and after that if you play such a shot. It’s good that a young player didn’t play that shot. If a young player had played such a shot, there would have been a lot of criticism. He further said, “I am sure that the number of runs he has scored in international cricket, when he sees this shot, he will tell himself that the shot was not needed. You played 34 balls and scored 35 runs, your captain was just out, if you had extended your innings a little more, things would have been easier.”

Before the match between India and Pakistan on Sunday, Virat Kohli played only four of India’s 24 T20 matches since the last T20 World Cup. He returned to international cricket after a seven-week break. Gambhir called Kohli’s hit ‘nothing shot’, especially when one is playing the fast-paced 20-over format.

He said, “This is T20 cricket, you sometimes think that you should back your instincts and you did, but it is a disappointing shot, because it was a nothing shot. If you were looking to hit a six and got out, then there is no problem, because you are trying to play a big shot. He said, “Here you neither tried to hit a six nor found a gap. Really, it was nothing, maybe that’s why he’ll be even more disappointed.”
