Ravi Shastri on Virat Kohli: Indian team’s star batsman Virat Kohli was struggling with his form before the last Asia Cup 2022. Virat’s form was slowly becoming a matter of concern for the Indian team. But with the 2022 Asia Cup, runs started coming out of his bat once again. At the same time, in the match against Pakistan in the 2022 T20 World Cup 2022, Virat Kohli played an unbeaten innings of 82 runs and gave Team India a memorable victory. After the explosive innings of King Kohli against Pakistan, former head coach of Team India Ravi Shastri has given a big statement on Virat. Know what he said.
During the chase, Virat Kohli turned the match towards the Indian team by hitting two sixes in the last two balls of the 19th over. Kohli hit two sixes on Haris Rauf when India had to score 28 runs in 8 balls.
two sixes were the best shots
Ravi Shastri, the former head coach of the team, while talking to the Indian Express said, “Those two sixes on Haris Rauf in all these years of playing and watching India-Pakistan matches were the best shots played by any Indian batsman. These two shots can only be compared with the two shots made by Sachin on Shoaib Akhtar in Centurion in 2003 World Cup.
He further said, “Both of them were great cricketers of their era. In that innings of Tendulkar, some great shots were played in white ball cricket against Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis, Shoaib Akhtar and this innings of Kohli. These are the two innings I have seen where quality fast bowling has been separated.
was waiting for it
He went on to say, “Perhaps, I was looking at the greatest innings played by Kohli. But I didn’t realize this. I was not surprised. I was waiting for this to happen. I knew it would happen in Australia. Just check his records here. These pitches suit him and he likes to play in front of the fans on these grounds. His record against Pakistan was always good and it was a big situation. Time comes, stage comes, man comes.”
Ravi Shastri further said, “When all this was happening, I became emotional. I have seen what he has gone through in the last few years. Can I say something in the end? To be honest, we are a country with short memories. There are hat masters of the world. We change in two minutes. Kohli knows what I am feeling and I know what Kohli is feeling.
Have you silenced everyone?
Shastri ended the talk saying, “He was a superstar for the cricket world even before this innings. Now let him decide what he has to do with it. I will not describe it in words. What’s next for Virat? I don’t know about this. Let her live her life. Media and critics have put a lot of pressure on this uncut diamond and she has shown who she is. Silenced not everyone.
