Former Indian skipper Virat Kohli top-scored for India in the Super Four match against Pakistan in the Dubai International Stadium . With four fours and a six, Virat scored 60 off 44 balls while also running hard between the wickets and was superb against pacers.

Now, Virat Kohli fans cannot contain their excitement as the star batsman seems to have regained his lost form.

Speaking on his form, skipper Rohit Sharma said, “The form is brilliant, there no doubt about that. Needed someone to bat along when the others were getting out. He batted with that tempo as well. Virat getting that score was crucial from the team’s point of view.”



“He’s played well so far. It’s been a really good comeback, something to be happy about. You see, when Virat Kohli wasn’t scoring runs, people’s prayers were with him… People were worried but no one said, ‘Virat Kohli is finished,’ said former cricketer Mohammed Kaif.

He added, “Everyone believed he was a class batter. Yes, his form wasn’t clicking for a long time, but he never looked out of rhythm.”



Similarly, former India player Rohan Gavaskar said, “As any Indian cricket fan will tell you, no one is hoping that's a one-off. We are hoping that's Virat getting back into form because we have seen what Virat can do, what Virat is capable of. He has shown glimpses.”

Meanwhile, the star India batter equalled the record for most fifties in T20Is against Pakistan with a half-century. Kohli dropped anchor for India from No.3, compiling his 32nd T20I fifty (60 off 44) to lead India to 181/7 in 20 overs.

Kohli walked in and started positively, moving to 15 off 10 balls despite India losing Rahul shortly after Rohit's wicket.

With Suryakumar Yadav also falling cheaply, Kohli resorted to a more restrained approach, running quickly between the wickets and keeping the scoreboard ticking. He reached his half-century with a six off Mohammad Hasnain and finished on 60 after he was run out by a direct hit from Asif Ali in the final over.

The fifty was Kohli's fourth against Pakistan in T20Is. He had also made a half-century against Pakistan in the ICC Men's T20 World Cup match last year at the same venue.



The 33-year-old Kohli's tally of fifties is the joint-most by any player against Pakistan in men's T20Is. Aaron Finch, Kane Williamson, Kevin Pietersen and Martin Guptill are the others with as many fifties against Pakistan in T20Is.

Kohli's impressive run against Pakistan is reflected in his numbers: a total of 406 runs against them, the most by an Indian against Pakistan in T20Is, at an average of 67.66 and a strike rate of 119.06.
