New Delhi: The captaincy of Virat Kohli in the Lord’s Test is being praised all over the world. During this match, due to the enthusiasm with which Kohli captained, all the players looked full of energy. But while on one hand his captaincy is being praised, there is also a lot of criticism about his batting.
Kohli’s bat has been silent for a long time. He has not scored a single century for the last two years. Kohli’s fans have been expecting a big innings from him for a long time. Meanwhile, the world’s greatest batsman and former Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar has told why Kohli has been flopping for a long time.
Sachin told the big reason
Regarding the poor form of Indian captain Virat Kohli, Sachin Tendulkar, who scored a century in international cricket, said, ‘Virat did not start well. Sometimes technical mistakes can happen due to the things going on in the mind. When you don’t get a good start, you start thinking about a lot of things. In such a situation, the anxiety increases even more, so you want to make up for the poor innings with your game. This happens to everyone.’
Said this thing in praise of Rohit
When asked about Rohit Sharma’s batting, Tendulkar said, “Whatever I have seen, I think he has improved and shown the other side of his game how he can change.” You can play according to the circumstances. Rohit was dismissed irresponsibly playing his favorite hook and pull shot on this tour but Tendulkar defended him, saying, “He has given great support from Lokesh Rahul like a leader.” As far as playing the pull shot is concerned, he has sent the ball across the boundary several times with that shot and I am looking at what he has achieved for the team in both the Tests.
India’s bowling attack best – Tendulkar
Asked about the comparison of the Indian team’s current pace bowling with the bowling of Kapil Dev, Javagal Srinath and Zaheer Khan’s era, he said, “Today this bowling attack is the best in the world. It shows talent, discipline and fitness but hard work and willingness to learn more. I don’t like to be compared to another era because the bowling attack should also be judged by the batsmen who are batting against them. During the generation of Kapil or Srinath or Zaheer, they had different batsmen in front of them.
