Following the match, Kohli addressed his critics in a post-match interview, expressing his determination to prove himself in the T20 format.

“I know my name is quite attached to promoting the game in many parts of the world when it comes to T20 cricket, but I have still got it I guess,” Kohli remarked.

Kohli’s comments come amidst speculation about his place in India’s T20I side, particularly with the T20 World Cup 2024 on the horizon.

Despite limited appearances for India in T20Is since November 2022, Kohli’s outstanding form in the IPL has reignited the debate about his selection.

Notably, former cricketer Kevin Pietersen emphasized Kohli’s global appeal, suggesting that his inclusion in the 2024 T20 World Cup squad could benefit the game’s growth worldwide, irrespective of his individual performances.

With the T20 World Cup approaching, all eyes will be on Kohli as he strives to make a significant impact on the global stage once again.
