Virat Kohli reveals how changing his stance: The Indian captain opened up on a significant change in stance coming good for him.
India captain Virat Kohli is among the many cricketers who have taken refuge across social media platforms in the wake of the novel COVID-19 pandemic. With no cricket being played for the last two months , cricketers don’t have many options than to engage with fans or fellow cricketers on social media platforms.
Kohli, who had recently interacted with India football captain Sunil Chhetri, was seen speaking to Bangladesh ODI captain Tamim Iqbal during a Facebook Live session. Laying emphasis on evolving according to the need, Kohli opened up on how oppositions figure out players who don’t change.
“I always feel you should be open to changes. You can’t stagnate, you have to keep learning. If you keep playing in the same manner, opposition will figure out your game.

“You have to be ahead of the game. So try it and drop it if it doesn’t work, but any batsman should be open to positive changes,” Kohli was quoted as saying.
Virat Kohli reveals how changing his stance worked wonders for him
It is worth mentioning that Kohli himself made a significant change to his batting stance after starting to play for India. Talking about adapting the initial movement before playing a delivery, Kohli disclosed how his urge to score all over the ground made him do the same.
“I changed because I wanted to score all over the ground. The static position was limiting my shot-making options. It works for many, Sachin Tendulkar for instance. He had no issues because of his superior technique and hand-eye coordination.
“I had to tweak it to suit my game. When someone first told me it could open up my options, I thought of giving it a try. Luckily, it clicked and I immediately started executing shots which I never thought I could,” Kohli said.
Had it not been for the ongoing global crisis, Kohli would have been leading Royal Challengers Bangalore in the 13th season of the Indian Premier League.
