The veteran wicketkeeper-batter also feels that the modern-day batting great Virat Kohli will continue his red-hot form and register good scores in the high-profile game against Pat Cummins & Co.

“He [Virat Kohli] batted well right from the start. In the first game, he got a 70 against Mumbai Indians. He was looking top-notch, and right at the back end of the IPL. He showed his class. The two hundreds that he got is phenomenal. He is batting brilliantly and I am very sure he’ll have a good score,” he said.
