After 16-runs win over South Africa in a high-scoring game, the BCCI shared the video of the moment on Twitter, leaving fans in awe. Kohli’s gesture earned him a lot of praise as he missed a record-extending half-century.

In the video tweeted by BCCI, Dinesh Karthik, team India’s designated finisher, can be seen asking Virat Kohli if he wanted to strike to complete another half-century but the former skipper was quick to turn him away, asking him to perform the designated finisher’s role.

Karthik was on strike in the final of the first inning while Kohli was at the non-striker’s end with 49 off 28.

Taking strike, Karthik missed the first ball of the final over but found the boundary off the next delivery. Followed by a dot and a wide, he hit a six.

After hitting six on the 4th ball of the final over, he walked over to Kohli and asked him to play the last two deliveries as he needed just one run for his century.

Karthik went on to hit a stylish six over extra cover and then the two ran one bye as India made 237/3.

Despite some poor bowling effort from the bowlers, Team India was able to register 16 run win over South Africa in a run-fest T20I in Guwahati. Apart from Suryakumar Yadav and KL Rahul, skipper Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli also contributed with the bat.

Despite David Miller’s thrilling century and Quinton De Kock’s half-century, South Africa fell short of 16 runs and was left behind to level the three-match T20I series.
