The former Indian skipper Virat Kohli is certainly one of the greatest cricketers of all time. It is needless to say that many draw inspiration from the batting superstar. Now, India’s opponent for the second match of the ongoing Asia Cup 2022, Hong Kong came up with a special gesture towards Virat Kohli. Hong Kong presented a special signed jersey to Kohli with a heartwarming message. The former Indian captain thanked the entire team for the ‘humbling’ gesture after the Asia Cup match between the two teams on Wednesday.

“Virat, Thank you for inspiring a generation. We stand with you. There are many incredible days ahead. With strength. With Love. Team Hong Kong”

Kohli posted the jersey as a story on Instagram with the caption: “Thank you @hkcricket. This gesture is truly humbling and very very sweet.”

Kohli has seemingly gotten back to his top form as he notched 59* off 44 balls, consisting of one four and three sixes in the match against Hong Kong. Now in 101 matches, Virat has scored 3,402 runs in T20Is at an average of 50.77. He has 31 half-centuries in the format, with the best individual score of 94*. He has a strike rate of 137.12.

Kohli’s fifty aided Suryakumar Yadav’s blistering knock of 68 as the defending champions India defeated Hong Kong by 40 runs in their Asia Cup match on Wednesday, registering their second successive win in the coveted tournament.

Sent into bat at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, India scored 192 for two with Kohli (59 not out) and Yadav (68 not out) being the team’s main contributors. In reply, Hong Kong were stopped at 152 for five in their allotted 20 overs as India entered the Super 4 stage of the tournament.
