India is struggling a lot in this game and we are all out on 78 and England is playing on 423 runs and they are 345 runs ahead of India and India seems to lose grip on this match. In all this former Indian cricketer Maninder Singh came up with advice for Virat Kohli as he should not play his shots and spend time on crease he Added before the Test Match, Virat Kohli had said that in these English conditions you’ve got to keep your ego in your pocket. I think that is absolutely right.
“If he tries to dominate like Virat Kohli usually does, these are not the pitches where he can bat like that. Needs to spend some time there as he did on the previous tour where he scored almost 600 runs. Once you know the pace and know how much the ball is seaming around, then you can carry on playing your shots“These are not flat Indian pitches, where you can just put your foot forward and start driving. What Kohli preached, he will have to practice. Keep your ego in your pock.”
Maninder Singh interview to ESPN Cricinfo states in his interview that Virat has to learn from the mistakes he has done before the 2014 England tour he is a good batsman and should learn from his mistakes as we all know jimmy gets better off Virat and took his wicket for the third time during this series.
And during the interview, he also states Virat Kohli is basically making the same mistakes. The ones that he was making on his first tour of England. He is playing away from the body. It could happen to you if you are not playing regular cricket. He got out a couple of times the same way as you did in 2014. When he just got 138 runs in ten innings.
Virat Kohli is struggling a lot in this series and Maninder advice is really good and best and Kohli should implement it in his game as India needs the support of his skipper who is losing grip and we all know that once Kohli gets going then there is no one like him and England is in great danger then.
“I think things start coming back. Am I playing the wrong line? Should I be leaving these balls? All these Indian boys, in the first two Tests, were leaving balls outside the off stump. I do not know what happened in this Test match. They were wanting to play at it and paid the price for it. With Virat Kohli, he is going through a bad patch.”
Its Virat Kohli time now
As we know that India is losing grip on match and English are 3435 runs ahead and we were all out on just 78 runs and in second innings we need a miracle from Kohli and company b ut in all this all eyes on skipper Kohli as this the great time to proof yourself Kohli test performance also dipping but this time he has the opportunity to play it like a master and save his team from chaos and we all know our king can do so as there are almost 50 test innings since Kohli did something and hits a century.
