Peter Drury has been regarded as one of the greatest football commentators. His flawless delivery and spectacular narration have allured spectators around the globe. The British commentator is distinctively known for his description of Cristiano Ronaldo’s return to Manchester United.
When Peter analyzed, the fans were left awe-struck. The description read, “Reeved in Red. Restored to this great gallery of the game. A walking work of art. Vintage, beyond valuation, beyond forgery or imitation, eighteen years since that trembling teenager of touch and tease, first tiptoed on to the historic stage, now in his immaculate maturity, now CR7 reunited.”
Recently, a fan re-created Virat Kohli’s down the ground maximum against Haris Rauf with the voice of Peter Drury and the video has been surfacing on all social media platforms ever since.
The World Twenty20 match against Pakistan signified Virat Kohli’s formal comeback to form. What really established that Kohli is back was his outstanding performance in the second innings against Pakistan, which was played under duress.
When Cricket Meets Football: A Fan Re-Created Virat Kohli’s Famous Shot Against Haris Rauf With Peter Drury’s Commentary
In pursuit of 160 in the opening encounter of WT20, India was tottering at 31/4 before Virat Kohli and Hardik Pandya orchestrated a game-changing partnership. While Virat took on the role of aggressor, Hardik played the second-fiddle.
In the encounter against India’s fiercest adversaries, one of Virat Kohli’s most famous smashes in recent years came against Haris Rauf, when he smashed Rauf for a straight six over his head while the Pakistani pacer could only look at the ball aimlessly.
According to many fans, the commentary for that shot, was subpar, which significantly lessened the magnitude of that shot.
Many fans have lambasted the announcer for that match, Harshal Bhogle. The Indian commentator described the event as, “Kohli goes down the ground, Kohli goes out of the ground.” Fans believe Harsha could have done a better job.
In relation to Harsha Bhogle’s comments on Virat Kohli’s hit, one fan modified Peter Drury’s analysis to include Virat Kohli’s shot and shared it on Twitter. Fans adore it as well, and Peter Drury’s quotes enhanced the impact of Virat’s stroke.
