Worry is Kohli’s current form
Now in this list, West Indies legend cricketer Ian Bishop has also given his opinion and said that the way Virat Kohli is not able to score runs consistently in the current season of IPL is a matter of concern. Earlier, only a few bowlers used to achieve success against Virat Kohli but this season the number of bowlers getting him out has increased and they are seen losing their wickets in front of different types of bowlers. It is noteworthy that in the 15th season of IPL, Virat Kohli has been able to score only one half-century in 11 innings and has added 175 runs at a strike rate of just 111.09.
Virat Kohli is playing very slow
Talking about Virat Kohli’s batting, he is looking very slow this season. In the last match played against Chennai Super Kings, Virat Kohli scored just 30 runs off 33 balls and returned bowled by Moeen Ali, while completing a half-century that came from his bat. In 50 balls faced, Ian Bishop has stressed on Kohli’s struggle against spin bowling and said that it is a matter of great concern.
He said, ‘Virat Kohli, who makes the first 10-15 runs while opening his innings, has a strike rate below 100, not only that, his batting is also not showing that ardor in which he runs equal to the ball. want to make In the last match, he improved the strike rate by hitting a six but after that the pace of runs slowed down again. This thing has been happening with Virat Kohli since last season which is a matter of concern.
Flop show continues against spinners
During this, Ian Bishop also mentioned about Virat Kohli playing slow in the innings as well as playing slow against the spinners and said that now every bowler seems to be dusting him.
He said, ‘Earlier, Kohli used to take the strike rate by scoring fast runs after setting himself, but now after playing so many balls at the beginning of the innings, Kohli is not able to score runs fast and is not able to stretch the innings too long. In such a situation, when he gets out after playing so many balls, then a difficult situation arises for the team. He was dismissed by Roston Chase in the series against West Indies in February, while in the last few Test matches he has been a victim of off-spinners. I am concerned about his performance against spinners, not only that, the way he is losing wickets to different bowlers shows that he is not able to dominate the bowlers.
