Brian Lara says “That is an issue we know that a lot of right-handed batsmen face” in the Indian Premier League. Brian Lara has pointed out the specialized flaws in Kohli’s dismissal. Against Knight Riders on Monday in Abu Dhabi. Kohli has opened the innings for RCB. He got out LBW from Prasidh Krishna’s in-swinger. Speaking to cricket.com, Lara stated that Kohli’s dismissal. It was more of a technical shortfall.
“In the World Cup 2019 semi-final against New Zealand, LBW again you look his head position. The ball before he struck it through extra cover may be the best shot of the match. The Head was on top of the ball. The next delivery, his head was almost in the same position as the previous ball, but the line was completely different it was coming down from middle and off, angling into middle and leg,” Lara said.
“That is an issue we know that a lot of right-handed batsmen, get on the front foot and fall over. Just need to maybe wait a little bit longer, keep a stiller head, and have that balance so that you can go down the track, instead of going towards the off stump when the ball is angled towards leg,” he added.
