Played carefully for 8 overs with no boundary lol Enough with excuses. He was trying to tap for a single to get to his 50. We know the quality of the innings relied on result.  

How many teams scored 176 from 34/3 in final/ko match in t20is?..

Played carefully for team after 34/3

At 34/3, the way kohli started accumulating runs at a SR of around 100 is perfectly understandable (as per situation).  No one is questioning that.  What we are questioning is his lack of intent even after Ind crossed 100. (Needless to mention, it was a flat pitch where Kuldeep & Axar got smashed all over)  Only after Ind crossed 130, Kohli started showing some intent, with only 3 overs remaining.  Our score of 176 was below par on that flat patta.          Bumrah, Arshdeep & Pandya had to bowl out of their skins at the death to win us the title.  (SA are proven chokers who choked after having won the game. Any other team would hv chased it down from that position).

176 good score on that pitch in finals.. 15th over would have given to Pandya instead of axar.. it's definitely not flat pitch, only spinners struggled.. agree kohli should have accelerated 1-2 overs early

Kohli's clutch genes alone made him a must have in the 15. And Sharma failed in all 3 playoffs of IPL indicating he's yet to develop a big match temperament. 

Kohlis innings was a pure match losing one and our bowlers bailed us out. There is ZERO evidence we would have collapsed of he got out, pandya etc were in prime form and barely got any balls in the final. We scored 20 less because of kohlis innings 

 

In fact most times we scored bad in knockouts in t20 was because kohlis poor innings put pressure on other batsmen. 

 

.it's easy to play "clutch" innings when you don't hit and play run a ball. Rohit, pant, sky all got out as they tried to hit, each of them can play selfish run a ball innings

There is also zero evidence that we wouldn’t have collaped, lol.

 

We were 30/3 with only one proper bat in Pandya left.

 

If someone from SouthAfrica played this selfish run a ball innings they would have won.

 

The only reason South AFRICA came close is because of Klassens Godly innings and no other batsman was able to replicate that, even DeKock scored 37(31).

 

Kohli now has two MOTT in world t20s and one MOTM in finals and has retires as t20 Goat.

 

I know some so called Gods have always stunk in finals so it’s obvious people will get jealous.

 

 

Other innings where Kohli played tremendously are 87(48) vs West Indies in semis of 2016 and match winning 72(44) vs Sa in 2014 Sf. Also easily our best bat in 2014 finals.

 

No more sample space needed, no one can argue with these stats unless they are heavily biased.

 

The Goat has now retires with the limited overs trip, All Hail !

Are you kidding me?

yes he was trying to get run a ball but after some time he tried accelerating but failed, finally when he succeeded he hit 3 sixes.

 

Do you really think he was trying to just get a 50 and wasn’t caring about Indias score?

I mean you need to be a hater of great magnitude to wven think that

Don’t worry bro, these are rabid haters, and they don’t possess a good understanding of cricket.

 

These are the same guys who will defend Tendulkar crying after Dravid devlared before his 200

Man how much of a dumbass one needs to be compare T20 and ODI

 

Let me draw it in crayons, in 50 overs we have 300 balls, and 10 wickets

 

In T20 we have same number of wickets but just 120 balls

 

Wasting balls is a bigger crime in T20 than losing wicket

Sachin was asked a question, he answered. Any one who thinks 48 of 50 is a good innings in T20 needs to get their brains checked

Does it matter if he tried and failed, he still cost the team 20+ runs in the end. In T20 wasting balls is a bigger sin that getting out cheaply

Sometimes u need to protect ur wicket in t20 cricket also. If sa one of the batsman played like kohli they would have won the trophy, atleast in last 5 overs miller or Klassen could have played like kohli

SA has always choked historically, if their batsmen wouldnt choke, they would have won 3 world cups, 2 CT and @ Wt20. It doesnt matter what the score or situation is. 

 

We were lucky it was SA, Aus or England would have thrashed us on this pitch with only 176 needed

Aus failed to reach semis n they lost to afg, eng lost to sa, ind n aus.. it's not our problem, if they didn't reach finals
