June 29, 2024, will be etched in gold in India’s cricketing history as a day of record-breaking achievements and unprecedented fairytales.

However, amidst all the celebrations, a tinge of sadness loomed as one of India’s greatest batters, Virat Kohli, announced the end of his T20 career.

Kohli, who made his T20I debut for India in 2010, finished as the third-highest run-getter in the format’s history, amassing 4,188 runs in 125 matches with an average of 48.69 and a strike rate of 137.04.

Despite a rare poor campaign, the 35-year-old delivered when it mattered most, earning the Man of the Match award in the final with a remarkable anchoring knock of 76 off 59 balls.

The veteran, clearly overwhelmed by emotion, celebrated adding the elusive trophy to his cabinet, after having reached the final in 2014. He marked the occasion with joy, donning his dancing shoes for a vibrant bhangra alongside teammates like Axar Patel, Arshdeep Singh, Rinku Singh, and Mohammed Siraj, all amidst the flash of cameras.

The emotional scenes resonated with fans, who quickly took to social media to express their adulation for one of the greatest cricketers to ever grace the game.
