Wasim Jaffer expressed concern about Virat Kohli’s batting fluency
“I’m still concerned about his command of the English language. Even though he has scored runs, his previous batting fluency has not returned. If anyone scores at a strike rate of 140 or 150 while batting alongside Virat Kohli, India is in big trouble. As a result, someone must bat at a much higher strike rate than Virat Kohli. Without Suryakumar Yadav’s knock, India would have finished with 150 or 160 runs, which would have been dangerous “Jaffer stated this during a conversation on ESPNcricinfo.
Suryakumar hit 68 off 26 balls to help India advance to the Asia Cup Super 4 stage.
Suryakumar put on an unbeaten 98-run stand with Kohli, who made 59 not out, to help India bat first to 192 for two.
In response, Hong Kong were limited to 152 for five as India won their second consecutive match to join Afghanistan in the next round of the six-nation event, which serves as a warm-up for the T20 World Cup in October-November.
