Virat Kohli Player Of The Series
Team India lost in the final of World Cup 2023. This was a result which perhaps very few people would have expected. Australia won the title battle by 6 wickets at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad and won the ODI World Cup for the sixth time. In the final match, Travis Head scored a brilliant century and led Australia to victory. By the way, in the final match, when Head’s bat played, Virat Kohli was chosen as the star of the tournament. Virat Kohli scored the maximum 765 runs in this tournament and received the Player of the Tournament award. However, what Virat did after receiving this award has become headlines.
Virat Kohli definitely got the Player of the Tournament award but he was very disappointed. Virat Kohli went straight down from the stage. He did not even talk to presenter Ravi Shastri. Let us tell you that when a player receives an award, he is talked to, but Virat Kohli did not want to talk. He waved his hand to Ravi Shastri and went straight away. Apparently Virat Kohli was emotional after the defeat and was not even in a position to talk.
Rohit also became emotional
As soon as Team India lost the World Cup final, tears were seen in the eyes of captain Rohit Sharma. The Indian captain was quite disappointed. He went to the dressing room as soon as the match was over. Virat Kohli also went to the pavilion hiding his face with a cap. Tears were also seen in Siraj’s eyes.

Kohli showed ‘Virat’ game
Even though Team India could not win the World Cup, Virat Kohli played like a champion in this tournament. Scored 765 runs in 11 matches at an average of 95.62. He scored 3 centuries and 6 half-centuries with his bat. For the first time in World Cup history, a batsman scored more than 700 runs in a tournament. Virat broke Sachin Tendulkar’s record. Not only this, in this World Cup, Virat Kohli achieved the feat of scoring 50 centuries in ODIs. Overall, this tournament was amazing for Virat Kohli but he could not make his team champion.
