India won their opening T20 World Cup 2022 game against Pakistan in a last-over thriller at Melbourne Cricket Ground on Sunday (October 23). The game proved to be one of the best T20I clashes between two Asian rival nations with plenty of action from start to innings' last ball. Virat Kohli stole the show again with one of his career best knocks in T20Is by smashing unbeaten 82 runs off just 53 balls.
Indian captain Rohit Sharma won the toss and invited Pakistan to bat first at MCG. His decision proved correct as in-from pacer Arshdeep Singh dismissed Pakistan's star duo of Babar Azam and Mohammed Rizwan in powerplay overs to give India a terrific start. But Shan Masood and Iftikhar Ahmed smashed brilliant fifties to guide Pakistan to a respectable fighting total of 159 in 20 overs.
India also lost their star openers Rohit and KL Rahul quite early and were struggling at 31/4 in 6.1 overs. But Kohli smashed a crucial fifty and formed a match-winning partnership of 113 runs with Hardik Pandya for the fifth wicket. Kohli dominated the death overs as India managed to chase 48 runs from the innings' last three overs.
Fans noticed Rohit's British accent in the post-match presser:
Kohli remained unbeaten on 82 runs and Ravichandran Ashwin scored winning runs on the last ball to guide India to a thrilling four-wicket win. Rohit was speechless in his post-match presser and praised Kohli for playing one of the best innings for India.
"I have no voice left. We were always wanting to make sure we stayed in the game as long as possible. We've been talking constantly about it. No matter what the situation, you've got to believe you can pull through, and that partnership changed the game for us. There was good carry, good swing as well, and we utilised that well upfront. That was good to see from the bowling perspective. They batted well in the middle. We knew it would not be an easy target on that pitch," Rohit Sharma said in the post-match presentation.
However, fans noticed the Indian captain's accent while answering reporters' questions in the presser. It sounded like Rohit was trying to speak in a thick British accent which caught the attention of the Indian fans.
