On Wednesday, India had an outstanding start to their T20 World Cup 2024 campaign, emerging victorious in their tournament opener against Ireland. Bowling first, India restricted the Irish to a paltry 96-run total before chasing it successfully inside 13 overs. 

Meanwhile, amid India's clinical performance, an incident that grabbed the limelight was when the Indian fans requested skipper Rohit Sharma to give the ball to Virat Kohli. 

During India's fielding, fans cheered for legendary batter Virat Kohli as he was pushed back to the deep. 

Seeing their favourite cricketer near the fence, the Indian fans chanted 'Kohli ko bowling do' (Give the ball to Kohli) to catch his attention. 

Notably, this phrase recently became a trend in India, with the Indian supporters expressing their desire to see Kohli bowl during the 2023 World Cup. 

Meanwhile, Kohli, who joined the team late and missed the practice game against Bangladesh, had a forgettable start to the T20 World Cup. Opening alongside Rohit Sharma, the stalwart managed only a solitary run before Mark Adair dismissed him

On the contrary, Rohit rode his luck to a fighting fifty, slamming a scintillating fifty before retiring hurt. 

India, currently at the top of the Group-A standings, will face arch-rivals Pakistan in their next World cup fixture in New York.
