In-Depth Analysis: How Virat Kohli is Bossing The T20 World Cup 2022?
So far India’s biggest source of encouragement in the ongoing T20 World Cup has been Virat Kohli hacking his way through a maze of bowlers and the results are evident for everyone to witness. He scored a fine 82 against Pakistan guiding Team India home while he also belted a crucial half-century in the following game.
More than the numbers, what has been significantly more riveting is how Kohli have dominated the massive boundaries of Australia. If you have been a keen admirer of Kohli or even followed the news a couple of months back, Harshal Patel, his IPL teammate said that bowling slower balls to Virat Kohli doesn’t make sense, for he is not looking forward to muscling you.
Virat has always been about techniques and the kind of precision that he has shown in recent times, undoubtedly deserves a lot of plaudits. He has been phenomenal in gameplay and his temperament has been the game-changer. He has kept his calm and read the match situation very well.
Before we get into the analysis, if there is one thing that Virat has been actively doing which has benefitted India a lot in the middle overs is his running between the wickets. On the great grounds of Australia, reaching the ropes is a significant challenge for the batters. Hence, it is important that you convert the ones to twos, the twos into threes.
The epitome of fitness that Virat is, it is understandable that he is forcing his partners to put in those extra yards. He has been running himself handsomely and that is one of the key notes of his aggressive displays in the T20 World Cup.
There is more than meets the eye for Virat as he has been exceptionally handsome with his strikes, figuring the boundaries in a smart manner and using whatever shorter boundaries he is capable of. He has been a genius in his strokes and he has seemed in menacing touch whenever he has been on the front foot.
The last but the most important part of Virat’s knock is his pacing of the innings. He is taking his time, getting his eyes in and then whatever lag he has exhibited at the start of the knock. He is making up for it towards the end, just in the nick of time when India feels that the crunch is on. He has been leading the Indian batting unit.
Known for his nerves of steel, Virat is once again back to his signature best and if this continues, things can be devastating for oppositions if he continues at the same speed and this is one of the reasons why India leads the list of contenders for the T20 World Cup.
