The Indian skipper, Virat Kohli never ceases to amaze us with his batting traits. How often do we come across his measured batting approach with a tinge of good technique that has reflected on team’s favourable outcome?
During the T20I opener between India and New Zealand, India were invited to bat first. The two specialist openers, Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan laid a solid platform.
The productive pair constructed a 158-run partnership for the first wicket that is the most by any Indian pair in T20I cricket history.
After Dhawan shimmed down the track on 80, he was beaten all ends up by Ish Sodhi as Tom Latham collected the ball and craftily whipped the biles off to send Dhawan back to the pavilion.
Hardik Pandya was far from being impressive as it was just an off-day for him as he got out for a duck. Virat Kohli who looked quiet in the first ball launched one into the stands in the second ball that he faced.
It was exactly in 17.2 over when de Grandhomme bowled a length ball to Virat Kohli. The super special batsman had an easy bargain to make the right move.
After smashing the six that sailed into the crowd, he himself was surprised about the shot and the way he hit. He went up to Rohit and shared smiles after that.
Virat Kohli made a quick-fire 11-ball 26 with as many as three sixes right at the end with a strike-rate over 230 helped the side get past the double century mark.
Kohli requisite hunger to essay flamboyant runs for the team is a testimony to the fact that he is making most of the form. That’s why we call him the most consistent batsman ever in contemporary cricket.
