Gracious gesture of Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni after India Vs Pakistan game wins over the internet

Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni were very classy while congratulating Pakistan players after their first win over India in World Cup

The Indian captain Virat Kohli and the former Indian captain MS Dhoni, who is currently the mentor of the Indian team, were very gracious in defeat against Pakistan in the T20 World Cup last night. Their gesture towards the Pakistani cricketers in the aftermath of a terrible defeat has earned them accolades on the internet.

India were comprehensively beaten by Pakistan for the first time ever in a World Cup encounter. While the Indian team tried hard with the ball, the dew in the second innings made the job extremely difficult for them, and Pakistan batted to the best of their abilities as well.

Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni met Pakistani cricketers without any hard feelings after the game

However, once the match got over, the Indian captain went to Pakistan’s opening duo of Mohammad Rizwan and Babar Azam and congratulated them. MS Dhoni, India’s mentor, also came out and had a chat with the Pakistani cricketers without any hard feelings at all.


While the Indian fans were really disappointed by the defeat and it was obvious because it was a huge game against the arch-rivals, those gracious gestures by MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli were praised on the internet.

Virat Kohli was actually India’s highest scorer with the bat after they lost a couple of early wickets in the game. The Pakistani new ball fast bowler Shaheen Afridi bowled a couple of quality inswingers to the Indian opening duo of Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul and pushed India on the backfoot straightaway.

Kohli, however, resurrected the Indian innings with a good partnership with Rishabh Pant and got India to a respectable total eventually, but it didn’t prove to be enough at the end. With the ball skidding on nicely towards the latter parts of the second innings because of the dew, the Pakistani opening duo of Babar and Rizwan chased down the target easily.

I write a bit on cricket and I am more interested in technical and tactical side of the game, rather than bravado.
