Virat Kohli continues to attract new fans with his magical displays in the ongoing T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia. The star Indian batter played one of his finest T20I knocks against Pakistan to guide India to a crucial win in their Super 12 Group 2 first match. Then he continued that momentum against Netherlands in the last match with another unbeaten fifty.

Kohli never misses the chance to shock his fans with his batting skills on the pitch and his current performances have been exceptional in the World Cup. The former Indian captain has been top of his game and that has even excited the legendary cricketer like Adam Gilchrist himself.

The former Australian wicketkeeper batter was spotted shaking Kohli's hand just before India's last game against Netherlands on October 27. In a recently surfaced video, Kohli and the former cricketer Dale Steyn were having a chat before when Gilchrist joined them and shook the Indian batter's hand in excitement and said something, which led to laugh from both Kohli and Steyn.

India jumped to the top of the Group 2 table after their big 56-run win over Netherlands in the last game. With four points from the opening two matches, India's chances to finish the Super 12 round in the top-two position are very high. Kohli is already leading the scoring charts for India with 144 runs from two matches at a strike rate of 148.45.

But India face a tough challenge in their next World Cup game in form of South Africa, who beat Bangladesh by 104 runs in their last game. Both India and South Africa clashed in three-match T20I series earlier this month which India won by 2-1 at home. But South Africa put in a big challenge against Indian bowlers by scoring 227 and 221 in the last two T20Is. With Indian bowlers' improved form, it will be an interesting clash at Perth Stadium on October 30.
