Fans on Twitter reacted to Kapil Dev’s statement “Virat Kohli’s six against Haris Rauf will be watched as many times as MS Dhoni’s World Cup winning six was watched”. They feel that both were important at their respective stages and the team wouldn’t have won without either of them.
Virat Kohli’s six to Haris Rauf will be watched as many times as MS Dhoni’s World Cup-winning six was watched” says Kapil Dev
Virat Kohli has been in the headlines ever since he won India the game against Pakistan in the T20 World Cup 2022. He played a staggering knock of unbeaten 82 runs and it’s fair to say that he single-handedly won the game for his side.
When India was tumbling at 31/4, not many would’ve backed them to bag the win. But Virat Kohli became the light at the end of the big tunnel for his side and played brilliant to snatch the win from the jaws of defeat.
It was ‘vintage’ Kohli who asserted his authority and once again proved why is he rated as the best in the world. It was an exhibition of high-class batting by him as he sealed the match from the jaws of defeat to help his side begin their campaign on high.
The main highlights of his innings were the two sixes he hit against Haris Rauf in the penultimate over. With 28 runs needed off the 8 balls, Kohli tonked the pacer over the long on and then guided the ball towards the fine leg region to hit two consecutive sixes.
1983 World Cup-winning skipper Kapil Dev made a big statement after India’s thrilling win over Pakistan in the T20 World Cup 2022. He said that Kohli’s six against Haris Rauf will be watched as many times as MS Dhoni’s World Cup six. Speaking to ABP News, he said:
“Virat Kohli’s six to Haris Rauf will be watched as many times as MS Dhoni’s World Cup winning six was watched”.

It is tweets like these, that make everyone troll VK. Everyone loves VK, but their fanbase is the most toxic.

Kohli's six of a Haris Rauf's back of a length delivery which was hit straight six was a pure class and nearly impossible to pull off it was of only Kohli's calibre who mads ir so easy with 145+kmph. pic.twitter.com/hSxIjw5zbaAdvertisement

That's too much imo. Agreed that his six changed the momentum but dhoni's six was way different.

Dhoni’s six is not famous just because it was a six or a winning six. It’s famous because it was a moment. With that six, the trophy came home. So it’s on 🔝Advertisement
If u r comparing just the sixes, obviously Virat hit probably the best two sixes of his career as well as ICT history.

Why tf people are fighting over this? Chill guys, both MSD and Virat are indians. Instead of comparing their sixes, you should be proud of their achievements.Advertisement

Don't even compare both. When dhoni hit six match was done but here match is in pak favour and virat six is more eye pleasing
