Life lessons from Virat Kohli’s match-winning knock



Here goes the popular adage: life is a game and play. Also, after seeing India’s thrilling win over arch-rivals Pakistan in the current T20 World Cup Down the Under, cricket fans would like to add a few more words to the popular maxim: life is a game and play it like Virat Kohli. .

Well, aside from the skills of entertainment, excitement and cricket, a number of life skills are to be learned from the practical lessons given by King Kohli in the match of his life (indeed the match of a lifetime for all fans out there). of the Indian team).

Here are some life lessons from Kohli’s brilliant hit…

Positive attitude

Against an attacking Pakistan bowling line-up, the wickets were falling from the other end and India was looking down on losing four wickets with 30 runs on the board. But Kohli was totally positive about India’s chances in the match. His positivity helped him immensely in staying cool, which was the most important factor. Even his teammate Axar Patel and other heavy hitters like captain Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul couldn’t cope with the pressure in the high-octane game.

never say die attitude

Things couldn’t have been worse for the Men in Blue after losing their first order. But Kohli’s basic motivational message to his partner Hardk Pandya and his similar ability to fans is to have a never say die attitude. She stretched the match down the barrel and kept her trust in him. According to Kohli, his two incredible sixes from him at the end of the innings came out of his gut! Life is not a bed of roses and it is often a roller coaster ride. However, one with perseverance often wins the battle.

team effort

Virat had full confidence in Hardik Pandya. He believed in Pandya’s abilities and encouraged him to play big shots. He supported the strength of him to penetrate the field and take out those two and three. He then played his shots during the crucial final period when he was fully settled. He even took advice from his junior Hardik Pandya with full respect and implemented it in his hitting. He even had confidence in Dinesh Karthik and Ravichandran Ashwin. As a result, Ashwin’s well-timed left of the wide leg delivery on the penultimate ball amid roars from nearly a lakh audience was truly crucial. Kohli was a team man.

don’t rest on your laurels

One can be a champion on any given day. But every day you have to face new challenges. So one cannot just sit on their laurels. The likes of Rohits, Rahuls and Suryakumars cannot follow their reputation all the time and throw away their wickets. Kohli showed that one has to start from scratch depending on the moment and the situation. The way Virat submitted and adjusted when the windows were rolling down and then sped up after settling in was a life lesson in itself.

Humility at its finest

VIrat went with all due respect for the opposition bowlers. However, he had full confidence in him and the team’s abilities. After his return to the team after a poor state of form, Virat seems to have learned his lesson. He now he has softened externally. However, his aggression remains the same inside. In fact, he is now channeling his aggression properly in the right direction.

Play according to the limitation of one

Virat is a kind of hitter who relies mainly on singles and doubles and occasional limits. He takes his own time to settle down and plays big shots later. He is not a booming six hitter like Yuvraj Singh or Suryakumar Yadav. But King Kohli proved that one can be successful by following his unique style backed by confidence. He didn’t blow his wickets and flourished later after the initial dust settled.
