The countdown for the T20 World Cup 2024 has begun as the mega event is just four months away. Notably, the ninth edition of the tournament will begin on June 01 in the West Indies and the USA with the opening game between USA and Canada. With just four months left in the tournament, the International Cricket Council (ICC) released a promo for the T20 extravaganza to announce the beginning of the sale of tickets for the mega event.
In the 30-second promo shared on their social media handles, some notable moments from the previous edition were shown. Among them, was the iconic Virat Kohli’s six against Haris Rauf during the T20 World Cup 2022 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. Seeing the most revered moment from Indian cricket in recent times in the promo, the fans couldn’t keep calm as the video was widely shared on social media.
Watch the promo here:
Notably, Virat Kohli’s six against Haris Rauf during the match against Pakistan came at a crucial juncture as India required 28 runs to win from the last eight balls. Seeing the game running away, Kohli set himself to take on Rauf and smacked the penultimate delivery of his spell for a six straight down the ground with a mind-boggling shot.
The batting star further pulled him for another maximum on the next delivery to bring the equation down to 16 needed off 6. Kohli remained unbeaten on 82* (53) smashing six fours and four sixes in his innings as India won the thrilling fixture on the last ball with Ravichandran Ashwin hitting the winning runs.
The Indian fans would hope that Kohli continues his marvelous form in the upcoming edition and India begins their campaign against Ireland on June 05. However, the cricketing fraternity will be waiting for the tournament’s biggest game where India will again take on Pakistan on June 09 in New York.
