Indian striker Virat Kohli has been named ICC Men’s Player of the Month for October 2022 after outstanding performances in the game’s shortest format.

Zimbabwe’s Sikandar Raza and South Africa’s David Miller were the other nominees for the award along with Kohli, but the Indian striker beat them to win the title.

The 33-year-old struck in just four innings in October but had three memorable shots, including a magical 82* against Pakistan at the T20 World Cup.

Virat Kohli scored an unbeaten 82* 53 balls to help India earn an opening victory over Pakistan in their 2022 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup tie.

India looked completely out of the contest as Pakistan cut them to 31/4 while chasing 160, but Kohli didn’t give up and continued to produce a jaw-dropping 82* from just 53 deliveries to guide India home. Kohli also admitted in the post-match interview that it was the best move of his T20I career.

“It is a great honor for me to have been voted ICC Player of the Month for October. To be chosen as an outstanding player by fans around the world as well as by the panel makes this distinction even more special for me. “, said Kohli after winning the award.

“I want to pay tribute to the other nominees who performed so well over the month and also to my teammates, who continue to support me to perform to the best of my abilities,” he added.

Apart from his majestic shot against Pakistan, the 33-year-old also played an exceptional shot of 49* from just 28 deliveries against South Africa in Guwahati earlier in the month. He also scored an unbeaten 62 from 44 deliveries against the Netherlands in the T20 World Cup, which came right after the momentous blow against Pakistan.

Kohli’s efforts played a crucial role in helping India reach the semi-finals of the mega event. India will face England in the second semi-final in Adelaide on November 10.
