The last time these two countries played, Virat produced a special innings and that knock against Haris Rauf will live long in the memory of cricket lovers.
What has Virat Kohli done in the last six to eight months? How did he come out of a bit of a bad period when he wasn’t scoring big balls? But now he is back in the habit of scoring big goals, he added.
Bangar also spoke about how Kohli has worked on his technique to overcome his slump in form in the last few months.
Basically, he was lunging towards the ball, taking a big step forward and because of that, he was often caught in the cordon or trapped in front of the wicket.
So what is he doing now? He is very good and early in his action, staying still and letting the ball come to him. That’s one aspect that will help him a lot, especially against Shaheen Shah Afridi, because he has the ball spinning late. And if you watch the ball, letting the ball come to you, you can play on the ground or around mid-on or mid-wicket; that’s his strength.
Against Nasim Shah, since he doesn’t lunge forward, his off-stump umpiring will be ideal.
And against Haris Rauf, who is on the backline all the time, he can get on the back foot or play a pull, which he did.
