Virat Kohli wants to add this shot of an English great in his armour
Virat Kohli is among the greatest players of modern-day cricket, with a range of shots in his armour and is capable of taking any bowler down at his peak. The batters try to emulate him to succeed in the international arena. After a slight slump, Kohli is back to his best again, scoring runs for fun.
In the ongoing edition of the World Cup 2023, Kohli has 354 runs at an average of 118 and a strike rate of 90.53 in five ODI innings. He has also amassed three fifties and a century. With the kind of form he’s in, Kohli will look to add plenty more to his tally.
Virat has taken his team out of troubled waters a few times already this World Cup. His presence has had a significant effect on India’s unbeaten run. However, as the campaign moves forward, the Men in Blue will have several daunting opponents to face and crunch moments to win.
One of those arduous tasks will be facing England in Lucknow on Sunday (October 29). While the English team haven’t been in great form, they have a star-studded team with numerous match-winners throughout. Moreover, the defending champions don’t have anything to lose now, making them even more dangerous.
