After a brilliant win over Scotland in a must-win Group 2 match of the Super 12 stage of ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2021, the skipper Virat had a blast on his 33rd birthday. BY 8 wickets win India is managed to keep hopes alive for the semi-finals.
Kohli stressed the importance of having his wife and Bollywood actor Anushka Sharma and daughter Vamika alongside him in Dubai on a special day, especially in the time of bio-bubble.
"I think I am over that phase now. No, I mean, my family is here. Anushka and Vamika are here. That's celebration enough for me. Just having families around in these times in bio-bubble life is very difficult. That's a blessing in itself. The team has been amazing. Everyone wished me," Kohli added.
Riding on an 18-ball fifty from KL Rahul and a quickfire 30 from Rohit Sharma, India chased down 86 runs in just 6.3 overs that win helped them push their Net Run Rate (NRR) ahead of New Zealand and even Afghanistan. Not the Men in Blue have moved from the 5th spot of the Group 2 points table to the 3rd.
