In order to completely shut down Bangladesh’s attack. He smashed seven fours and eight sixes, helping South Africa post 205-5 and win by 104 runs.
4. Phillips Amazing century Boost
While New Zealand was 11-2 against Sri Lanka when Glenn Phillips came out to bat. He smashed this year’s second century in just 61 balls to help his team secure a decisive victory. His 104-run innings, which included 10 fours and four sixes, perfectly reflected New Zealand’s early dominance of the Super 12. In a challenging Group 1, the Black Caps remained in first place with ease.
After his team was in a precarious 15-3 position, Phillips alone helped his team’s total rise to 167-7. It was a “fantastic innings,” according to captain Kane Williamson.
3. Stoinis fastest fifty
Australia, the tournament’s defending champion, was taken aback by New Zealand in the opening round and faltered in their pursuit of Sri Lanka. In his hometown of Perth, Stoinis then entered to hammer an unbeaten 59 off 18 balls. With four fours and five sixes, the big hitter destroyed the opposition’s attack, scoring the quickest T20 fifty by an Australian in 17 balls as the hosts won by 21 runs.
At the non-end, the striker’s where he and Stoinis stood in an unbroken 69-run stand, captain Aaron Finch had the best seat in the house and dubbed it a “fantastic innings.”
2. Suryakumar Yadav’s Masterclass against South Africa
After a match in which India lost to South Africa in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 Super 12 stage. Former India batter Gautam Gambhir praised Yadav’s 68 as the best T20 innings he had ever seen.
If not for the number four’s brilliant management of an innings that threatened to entirely collapse with only two other players scoring in double figures. Rohit Sharma coming in second with 15, the outcome could have been much, much worse.
Even though wickets were falling all around him, SKY still managed to contribute more than half of his team’s runs in a first-innings total of 133/9. This was impressive in and of itself. Another outstanding effort from the player who has earned the label “New Indian 360 degree player”
1. Virat Kohli is one of the best T20 Knocks in his career
With 28 needed off of just eight deliveries. At one stage it appeared that India had run out of time and was in serious trouble. With two balls remaining in his four over, Haris Rauf was bowling brilliantly, allowing just 24 runs to be scored. It was either now or never for India and Kohli.
The Indian star had no business acting the way he did. The delivery was good with a good pace that squeezed Kohli for space. An iconic moment in cricket history was created by a short-arm jab and a flick of the wrists that sent the ball sailing through the Melbourne sky and deep into the stands.
With one over left, another maximum off the following ball put India back in the game, and we all know what transpired after that.
But the drama that followed was set up by the first six in the penultimate over. No matter the situation, that shot would have been excellent. However, considering the circumstances of the game, it was extraordinary possibly the best T20 shot ever.
