Kohli retires from T20 internationals after winning World Cup title


Virat Kohli has ended his T20 international career with a World Cup trophy. He made the announcement shortly after India clinched their second T20 World Cup title at Kensington Oval in Barbados.

“This was my last T20 World Cup and this is exactly what we wanted to achieve,” Kohli said after winning the Player-of-the-Match award for his 76 in India’s seven-run victory.

“This is an amazing game, I was telling Rohit today when we went out to bat that one day you feel like you can’t get a run, and then you come out and things happen. God is great. I bow my head in gratitude. I’m really grateful was able to get the job done for the team when it mattered the most.”

Kohli ends his 125-match T20I career as India’s second highest run-scorer in the format- 4188 at an average of 48.69 and strike rate of 137.04. He had endured a difficult T20 World Cup up until the final- scoring only only 75 runs in seven innings before he made 76 off 59 balls in the final. (ESPNcricinfo)
