T20 World Cup 2022: Watch - Virat Kohli politely requests crowd not to distract him while practising in nets after they yell 'out of stadium'


The Super 12 of the T20 World Cup 2022 will commence within a few hours as cricket fans were all set to witness the most-awaited rivalry between India and Pakistan which is going to take place on 23rd October at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

Ahead of the nail-biting encounter, the former Indian skipper Virat Kohli was seen practising hard in the nets. During that time, a fan asked Virat Kohli to smash the ball out of the stadium to which the 33-year-old said, "Yaar practice ke time main bolo mat, distraction hoti hai."

Virat Kohli didn't bat in the first two practice games and went to play against Australia where he got only 19 runs under his blade. However, the Indian stalwart has seemed to be in good form since his fabulous hundred against Afghanistan, smashing an unbeaten 122 runs.

Moreover, the right-handed batter also looked in the same form against Australia in the home series and is expected to dominate Pakistan in the upcoming fixture on Sunday.

The former Indian cricketer and recognised as the 'God of Cricket' Sachin Tendulkar has defended Deepti Sharma for the mankading moment in the final ODI of the three-match series against England.

With that win, India whitewashed England by 3-0 and conquered the series at the Lords. In that case, Sachin Tendulkar shared a few words on Sportstar and said, "She was playing to what the laws of the game are," was quoted as saying by Circle of Cricket.

"Spirit of cricket… whatever you are playing within the rules of the game, that is spirit of cricket. It's a rule now. If a player is short of the crease or doesn't make the crease, then the batter is given out, right?

Just like he misses a ball that's heading toward stumps and in line of the stumps, he is given out lbw. So the ICC has introduced the rule that if you are out of the crease (before the ball is bowled), then you are run out," said Sachin Tendulkar.
