MSD's 6-year-old clip breaks the internet after Virat Kohli's 64-run knock at Adelaide Oval vs BAN
India pulled off a much-needed win on Wednesday at the Adelaide Oval, when India beat Bangladesh by five runs in a rain-affected game. And the match-winning contribution came from the bat of former Indian skipper Virat Kohli, who hit his third half-century of the ongoing tournament.
Batting first, India posted a competitive score of 184/6 in their first innings. KL Rahul, who struggled earlier, scored a vital half-century and made 50 off 32 to give India a good start. Then Virat carried on the momentum and reached his fifty.
He scored an unbeaten 64* off 44 balls, with eight fours and one six. It was yet another good performance by Virat Kohli at the Adelaide Oval, which has always been a good ground for the 33-year-old. He has always played some good innings on this ground, and that's what he did on Wednesday as well.
As soon as Virat reached yet another half-century at this venue, a 6-year-old video clip of former Indian skipper MS Dhoni went viral on various social media platforms, in which he was praising Virat for his brilliant knock at Adelaide Oval.
Virat has performed well in other venues as well, but when it comes to Adelaide Oval, there is no better match for him. And that's what he said in the post-match presentation, saying that this venue is his favourite one..
In the video, which is going viral, MSD was asked about the combination of Virat and the Adelaide Oval. To which MSD gave a humorous response and said, "They’ll be naming a stand after Virat Kohli in Adelaide, the way he’s scoring runs at that ground".

Furthermore, MSD also said that because Virat scores runs all over Australia, there might be many grounds named after him in this country. The 33-year-old was also adjudged "Man of the Match" for his fifty against Bangladesh on Wednesday.
Speaking of the game, Bangladesh also started well in their chase, and Litton Das gave them a flying start and scored a 21-ball fifty. He made 60 off 27 balls. Bangladesh were at 66/0 in 7 overs when the rain stopped play. After the rain break, they were given a target of 151 runs in 16 overs. In the end, they fell short by 5 runs and made 145/6 in their 20 overs.
