Virat Kohli’s 5 consecutive Fifties in World Cup 2019 is nothing less than a master class act

Virat Kohli didn’t start his World Cup Campaign well as he just scored 18 runs in India’s opening Match against South Africa. However, the Run Machine picked up his pace from thereon and went on scoring 5 consecutive half centuries in the subsequent matches against England, Australia, Pakistan, Afghanistan and West Indies.

Kohli’s fitness regime and strict diet routine has always kept him on the run. It’s all due to his fitness and strength, he is not only able to bat well or covert the ones into twos but also pushes him to save some odd runs on the field. In the meantime, India went on to beat Bangladesh on 2nd July 2019 to confirm their place in the semi finals. Let’s hope India comes up strong in the semis and go all guns blazing in the CWC 2019 Final as well.
