Kohli, who scored a crucial 76 off 59 balls, guided India to a robust total of 176/7. His composed and masterful innings was pivotal in setting a challenging target for South Africa. Defending the total, India faced a tough battle, particularly against Heinrich Klaasen’s explosive 52 off 27 balls. However, Jasprit Bumrah’s stellar bowling, with figures of 2/18 in 4 overs, and a stunning catch by Suryakumar Yadav at the ropes, ensured India’s triumph.

In the post-match presentation, an emotional Kohli said, “This was my last T20 World Cup, and this is what we wanted to achieve. One day you feel you can’t get a run, and then things happen. God is great, and I got the job done for the team on the day it mattered. Now or never, the last T20 for India wanted to make the most of it. Wanted to lift the cup, and respect the situation rather than force it. This was an open secret, it’s time for the next generation to take over, some amazing players will take the team forward and keep the flag waving high.”

Kohli’s retirement marks the end of an era, as he leaves behind a legacy of excellence and determination. His leadership and performances have been instrumental in shaping Indian cricket, making this victory a fitting conclusion to his illustrious T20 career.
