Talking to India today, former India women’s group captain Anjum Chopra said. Virat Kohli knows the cure to return to top form. Also, it’s not unusual to see a top-class batsman. Just like the captain going through a period of destitute form.
The Indian side into world-beaters, his batting frame has tapered off within the recent. What is wrong with Virat Kohli, the batsman? Whereas the India captain has driven the change of the current.
Kohli was racing towards the famous landmark of 100 hundred. It is having raked up 70 international hundreds within the first 11 years of his career.
However, the wait for the 71st hundred has stretched. It is beyond a year and a half. The last time India went past the 3-figure score in an international match. It was in November 2019, against Bangladesh in India’s first-ever pink-ball Test in Kolkata.
Virat Kohli has set himself a tall benchmark. Every time he strolls out to bat, fans anticipate special things. At various stages over the final 18 months, Kohli has appeared signs of returning. In his peak but the huge scores have escaped him. In reality, since the start of 2020, Kohli has scored only 407 runs with fair 3 fifty-plus scores. The average is less than 24 over 10 Test matches.
Kohli gears up for the Headingley Test. It is after a remarkable winning at Lord’s. Over England, then former India women’s team captain Anjum Chopra. She decodes what is possibly going wrong with the skipper’s game.
“I think he is trying too hard. I feel he is trying very, very hard to be error-free. He knows he has got the game and the temperament, but when you focus too much, sometimes you tend to falter. I just feel he is making a slight error in judgment,” Chopra said on Tuesday.
However, Captain Kohli conceded that England is one of the hardest places. Also, to the bat and it’s important that a hitter swallows his/her ego. When batting in the Old Blighty. It seemed Kohli was reminding himself. It takes to rehash his batting heroics from 2018. Wherein he was spotless against an English attack that was more undermining. And then the current, injury-damaged in arms stockpile.
