Former cricketer Sunil Gavaskar believes he can assist Virat Kohli “, particularly about regard to that off-stump line.”
Gavaskar feels Virat Kohli is desperate for big runs and has developed an “anxiety to play at every delivery” as a result.
Without scoring a half-century, Kohli’s England tour came to an end. With scores of 16 and 17, Kohli was dismissed off left-arm quicks Reece Topley and David Willey in the two ODIs. He scored 1 and 11 in the two T20I matches. In the previous Test match at Edgbaston, Kohli scored 11 and 20 in the first and second innings, respectively, before being dismissed while poking to the slip cordon. In all formats, Kohli’s century drought has now lasted 79 innings.
After India’s white-ball tour in the Caribbean, Kohli was given a break. Following that, India’s next tasks are a brief trip to Zimbabwe and the Asia Cup 2022, which may be held in the United Arab Emirates in August.
‘He has gotten out to good deliveries as well’: Sunil Gavaskar
Gavaskar believes Kohli is desperate for big runs and has developed an “anxiety to play at every delivery” as a result.
“As an opening batter who has been unsettled by that line, there are several things you attempt to do. It all needs to be noted that his first blunder ends up being his last.” Sunil Gavaskar stated to India Today.
“Again, just and he’s not in the running, there is this anxiety to play at every delivery because it’s what batsmen feel, they have to score.” You look for opportunities to play at deliveries that you would not have otherwise. However, on this tour, he has also made some good deliveries” Sunil Gavaskar said.
Virat Kohli has been offered the much-needed break to refocus by the selectors because his momentum is not on his side. Kohli will not participate in the upcoming ODI and T20I games against the West Indies.
