ICC calls Virat Kohli’s six off Haris Rauf ‘shot of the century’

Indian cricketer Virat Kohli is currently in remarkable form during the ongoing World Cup. The right-handed batsman has achieved a milestone by equaling Sachin Tendulkar’s record for the most One Day International (ODI) centuries. Furthermore, Virat Kohli’s remarkable six against Haris Rauf in the previous T20 World Cup has earned him the prestigious title of ‘Shot of the Century’ by the International Cricket Council (ICC).

To celebrate Virat Kohli’s 35th birthday, the ICC has honoured the Indian cricket superstar by dubbing his spectacular six against Pakistan’s Haris Rauf at the Melbourne Cricket Ground during the T20 World Cup 2022 as the ‘Shot of the Century.’ In a special video tribute, ICC compiled a montage featuring this incredible moment, along with his ‘Spirit Of Cricket Moment,’ and other iconic highlights from his illustrious career.

His shot down the ground not only won over fans’ hearts but also became a widespread topic of conversation.
