The Indian skipper Virat Kohli is hailed as one of the most talented batsmen around the world. He has come a long way ever since he made his international debut for India. So far, he has played 94 Test matches in his career, where he has amassed 7609 runs at a phenomenal batting average of 51.41. Also, Virat has registered 23 half-centuries, 27 centuries, and 7 double centuries in his Test career so far.
All thanks to his excellent numbers, he is termed as a GOAT for his batting masterclass, but the cricketer has been struggling with his form and his performances haven’t been up to the mark. Virat hasn’t been able to score a Test hundred since November 2019.
Speaking about the struggles of Virat Kohli, a few bowlers have regularly troubled him in the longest format of the game.
In fact on the opening day of the ongoing 3rd Test match, Virat Kohli once again disappointed the fans as he failed to perform yet again. Virat had walked out to bat when the Indian side was reeling at 4/2, however, he failed to take his team to the safe shores. Anderson delivered one full outside the off-stump and managed to lure the Indian skipper into a false shot. Virat played a very loose-looking shot as he looked to drive through the covers but only managed an outside edge and the ball landed on the safe hands of England wicket-keeper Jos Buttler.
