A senior sports anchor-cum-journalist from Pakistan, Zainab Abbas is in awe ofTeam India skipper, Virat Kohli. She has always been the admirer of sensational cricketers and this time, it is her turn to praise King Kohli.

The 29-year-old Indian batting mainstay Kohli registered one of the best centuries of his career which will remain as an interesting chapter in his book.

Kohli’s elegant drives coupled with the strong determination pulled back India from a dangerous situation.

Kohli’s brilliance at Edgbaston:

The journalist, Zainab tweeted ”King K” after the sterling knock from the Indian skipper in Birmingham. She was recently at the wrong side of the things when she praised former Team India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni, for his grand knock during the eleventh edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2018.

Zainab received a lot of flak from the Pakistan fans whenever she showers praises on Indian cricketers. Despite drawing the criticism, the adamant reporter has never let her shoulder down while admiring the splendid efforts on the field.

Virat Kohli scored his first Test century in England:

Earlier, ahead of the series, there was a red-hot debate on  Kohli’s performance in England, particularly in Tests. A lot of cricket pundits recollected Virat’s performance in 2014 while few were optimistic of his success.

The Indian skipper answered all the critics right in his first game with a gutsy 149 off 222 balls. Though he got a couple of chances when Dawid Malan’s butter fingers helped him, Kohli has been excellent in regaining his concentration.

The stupendous century knock from Kohli saw India finish their innings with 13 runs less to England’s 1st innings tally. If not Virat’s 149, it would have been the same old story for India.

Earlier in the day, Indian openers started the things in a fine way. Both Murali Vijay and Shikhar Dhawan showed their class while driving the ball. However, Sam Curran’s triple wicket scene in the span of two overs changed the things.

From then, it was all about Virat Kohli, who anchored the innings with his fine class. None of the batsmen stood with Kohli which would have kept India in a solid position against England.


I just love what I script. Over the years, Cricket has been my passion and crisping articles on it gives me an immense pleasure...Cheers...!!!
