New Delhi: In the five-match Test series being played between India and England, the bat of Indian captain Virat Kohli has remained silent so far, which has become the biggest issue of discussion in the cricket world. He has so far scored 124 runs in five innings at an average of 24.80. Meanwhile, a former Pakistan cricketer has now given a big statement on Virat’s batting.
Kohli will not be able to succeed in England
Former Pakistan bowler Aaqib Javed has shared his views on Virat Kohli’s batting. Javed said on PakTV.com’s YouTube channel, ‘Kohli is an Asian player, he can be successful in Australia, but in places like England and South Africa or anywhere where the ball swings or seams, he will have problems. He will play the ball from a distance because he has trouble playing controlled outswings.
Kohli’s record was excellent before this tour
In his last Test series in England, Kohli scored 593 runs in the five-match series at an average of 57.85. Also, Kohli was the highest run-scorer in India’s previous Test series in South Africa in 2017/18. He scored 286 runs batting in three test matches in difficult conditions.
Captain has been running flop for a long time
Virat Kohli has not been able to show anything amazing with his bat for a long time. Actually Virat has not scored a century in any format for the last two years. Apart from this, in the current series against England too, Virat has hit only one half-century. Virat is getting out again and again on the ball outside the off-stump. After the 2014 tour, once again Virat’s weakness in this tour has been known to the whole world. In the coming two Test matches, the only hope from the captain will be to make a comeback and definitely score a century.
Virat has 70 centuries to his name
Virat Kohli has 70 centuries to his name in international cricket. At present, no batsman is even close to Virat’s centuries. Only Ricky Ponting (71) and great batsman Satin Tendulkar (100) have more centuries than Virat. Big legends believe that only Virat Kohli can break Sachin Tendulkar’s record of 100 centuries. But the last two years have been very bad for Virat.
