Century: VIRAT KOHLI’s ENDEAVOR FOR 71ST TON CONTINUES
(Century 71st) The run machine who used to score centuries just like a walk in the park is struggling to get even close to his 71st century in the past couple of years. That has been the story,
Virat has been getting out frequently either below the 50s or just post his 50s. His conversion rate has seen a huge dip. The guy himself has set up such high standards for himself that everyone hopes for a century each time he comes on to bat.
If we dig a bit deep, we have seen him being dismissed in the same area and in the same fashion. He has been nicking the ball to the slip cordon or the wicketkeeper, trying to drive at the ball that is being bowled in the corridor of uncertainty.
(71st Century) We have seen him playing some extravagant cover drives over the years, but to everyone’s surprise that has become his major cause of worry these days. Another thing that we see is his extra baggage of captaincy which has been overpowering him
since everyone wants their skipper to score some runs and this pressure is piling up on Kohli. Moreover, what I have observed is their certain rush of blood these days in his batting and he just wants to score quickly,
and that attitude is causing a big problem, resulting in is his dismissal. Virat more often than not has been playing loose shots, which has not been the case if you look at someone like Joe Root and Kane Williamson.
In fact, spin also has troubled Kohli in the recent past, which wasn’t the case earlier.
Virat has one of the best techniques around all the batters in the Indian team. If does spend some time on the crease and tries to overcome his off-stump weakness, just like he did after the 2014 English tour.
The whole of India’s be rest assured of seeing many more of Virat’s Centuries in the years to come.
