Former England captain Michael Vaughan had suggested to Virat Kohli that he needs to be more assured with his mind rather than the technical flaws coming into play. Virat Kohli has been going through a rough patch of form again since 2019 and hasn’t scored a century in the last two years of international cricket.
The Indian skipper sets very high standards for himself and is often called the epitome of consistency. However, he did go through a poor form in the 2014 series in England and there are signs of that form getting into him again. He managed to score just 7 in the first innings of the Headingly Test.
Michael Vaughan Suggests Virat To Break The Innings Into Small Segments
Michael Vaughan mentioned that there hasn’t been any different technical flaw from Virat Kohli and suggested Kohli to break his innings into time frames so that he spends a lot more time at the crease. He added that Virat will certainly get runs if he spends time in the crease and not be desperate for runs.
“I don’t see his movements being any different. It’s just his mind. My advice for him would be to look at the clock when you go out, if it’s 20 past 11, say I’ll be there at half-past, and when you get to half-past, I’m just going to be there at 22. Just break it into small segments and try and break your innings down to time rather than runs because Virat will score runs if he’s out there for an element of time,” Michael Vaughan told to Cricbuzz
Michael Vaughan Feels India Had One Of The Worst Days In Their Test History
Michael Vaughan mentioned that India lacked the intensity that was visible on the final day at Lord’s and pointed out the catches dropped adding salts to the wounds. He reckoned that the first day at Headingly was one of the worst days for India in their Test history.
“I don’t know why but they didn’t seem to have that same intensity, the ball was not swinging. In the field they were clumsy, then that catch went down Rohit Sharma at second slip. I would say in India’s Test match cricket history, that would be one of the worst days that they’ve ever had,” He added
Virat Kohli will certainly feel the heat after having a run of low scores and he will be looking to get back in form soon.
