In a viral video from the ongoing T20 World Cup 2024, former India captain Virat Kohli was captured in the team's dugout, seemingly unfazed by the surrounding cheers of fans as he sat down to eat. Despite the chants of "Kohli, Kohli" echoing around him, Kohli appeared deeply focused, resembling his stance on the cricket pitch rather than someone about to enjoy a meal. In the video, a neatly arranged plate of food sat untouched on a table in front of him.

India's performance in their only warm-up match against Bangladesh, where they secured a convincing 60-run victory, suggests they are poised for a strong showing in the tournament. This year marks 17 years since India last clinched the T20 World Cup title under the leadership of MS Dhoni in 2007.
