Indian Cricket Team’s star batter Virat Kohli once again looks threatening. The former Skipper would be pumped up after smashing a century against T20 World Champions Australia. The right-handed batter scored 63 runs in 48 balls where he struck 3 fours and 4 sixes.

The way he smashed Pat Cummins for a six-over long off reminded everyone of the old Vintage Virat Kohli. The batter wasn’t amongst the runs in the 1st two T20Is where he was desperate to prove a point in the 3rd T20I match. It won’t be wrong to say that India’s batting department looks like a formidable one where all batters are performing.

Sanjay Bangar on Virat Kohli

Former Indian Batting Coach Sanjay Bangar was having an interaction with Star Sports and was asked about Virat Kohli. “He is a champion batter. He has done that for India for such a long period. He knows he is in that phase where he is enjoying his game big time. He knows that the rhythm is back, the hunger is back, you can see that with the body language that he is displaying along with his mates. That’s what you want to see in him, enjoying,” Bangar said

There was a phase where the pressure was getting to him. But after the break, the sense of enjoyment is back, the feeling of hitting a cricket ball is back in his game,” he added

Steep Challenge Ahead for Virat Kohli

South Africa would have got a clear idea of Virat Kohli’s strengths & weaknesses. The Proteas would be aware that the Indian Cricket Team is not well prepared for the 3 T20I match series as earlier the team played without a lot of senior players. Virat will have to be ready for an uphill challenge as the South African pacers would again target his offside weakness.

The management would be aware that now the team can’t afford any hiccups as the team has now gelled and is looking in good space. Men in Blue can’t afford to take Proteas as they have the habit of finding match-winners. This Series would give India a clear idea of their ideal playing 11 as still there are concerns over Harshal Patel & Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
