The Indian skipper Virat Kohli who is currently having a leisure time off the field with his wife Anushka Sharma in Europe will be back into cricketing action for India’s tour of South Africa.
BCCI’s poor scheduling saw India hosting the Test, ODI and T20I series against Sri Lanka which left Virat Kohli fuming, as he wanted a camp like atmosphere before the big tour of South Africa.
Indians don’t have much time for ideal preparations for South Africa which is why Virat Kohli urged BCCI to set up green-tinged, bouncy tracks for the Sri Lanka series in order to help the team prepare for the hostile South African conditions.
Virat has thus opted for a week of training with his childhood coach Rajkumar Sharma in order to correct whatever little glitches he has in his game at the moment.
It is no secret that Virat Kohli and his childhood coach Rajkumar Sharma share a great rapport with each other
Rajkumar Sharma was one of the close invitees who marked his presence in Tuscany for Virat and Anushka’s wedding.
“We have very little time now, but there’s still a week for practice. We will work on his batting,” Rajkumar Sharma added.
Rajkumar Sharma knows Kohli’s technique and batting better than anyone else and thus a few days with his childhood coach will help Kohli immensely before the big tour.
Virat Kohli’s fearless attitude has helped him deal with all the short deliveries. He is absolutely not scared of anybody else according to his childhood coach.
“Virat is very good at the pull shot and now he’s working on the cut. As a young player, he was fortunate to play on matting wickets at the academy and those pitches helped him deal with short deliveries well.
That is why he is comfortable with the short stuff and is not scared of anybody,” Rajkumar Sharma was quoted as per Midday.
India’s tour of South Africa starts on January 5 in Cape Town where the two sides will take on each other in the first test of the 3 match Test series
