News Daily Digital Desk: In the recently concluded World Cup (ICC ODI World Cup 2023), he scored the most runs with the bat. Naturally became the ‘Man of the Tournament’. However, Virat Kohli did not care about the ‘close man’ Ravi Shastri when he came to receive the award. The superstar of Team India walked towards the dressing room with the award. In the age of social media, it didn’t take long for that video to go viral.
In fact, the Indian team entered the home ground as favourites. But team India lost by 6 wickets due to batting failure and bowlers not being able to sustain the pressure. And that’s why he didn’t agree to talk to the conductor after receiving the award. Show your hands and leave. Virat’s heart was heavy after losing the World Cup. He was not in a position to talk about getting his own reward for the team’s loss.
His contribution in the final was 54. He could not accept the way he was dismissed by Pat Cummins even at the end of the match. Added to this was the rate. And that’s why Virat avoided the former coach of India while accepting the award. Ahmedabad was a witness to that incident in Ravi Basiya. Virat waves at Shastri and explains that he is in no mood to speak.

Virat was awarded the best player of the tournament by BCCI President Roger Binny. While leaving with the award, Shastri called him to say something. But he was not in a position to say anything at that time. So Virat waved his hand and explained that he had nothing more to say.
Virat was one of the members of Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s World Cup winning team in 2011. In 2015, Dhoni’s team left after losing against Ajid in the semi-final. After that, in 2019 India lost in the semi-final led by Virat. New Zealand was against service. And this time the cup went away even though it came very close. So he quietly left the field as soon as his dream broke.
Because his fate is like Sachin Tendulkar. Sourav Ganguly’s India lost the 2003 World Cup final to Australia by 125 runs. However, the master blaster of the service scored the highest 673 runs in 11 matches. Became ‘Man of the Tournament’. But he did not taste the cup. This time the same happened with Virat. Despite scoring the highest 765 runs in 11 matches and getting the best cricketer award, Virat’s dream of winning the world remained elusive.
