Former England captain Nasser Hussain expressed that Virat Kohli seemed unsure and struggled in playing the moving ball with confidence. Nasser Hussian said that Kohli will face more difficulties against England pacers in the rest of the series. Nasser Hussain feels that the struggles for Virat Kohli will get worse in the remaining matches if he does not work on his batting technique.
Nasser Hussain added Kohli had played all the balls that he could be leaving. Kohli seems to have some technical issue with the positioning of his back foot. Former England captain added that Kohli is not sure whether to play or leave the moving balls. England has high-class bowling attacks and it is not going to get any easier for Kohli.
Indian skipper Virat Kohli’s struggle against the moving balls has been one of the major setbacks for the Indian batting lineup. Virat Kohli is averaging just above 24 after three Tests with scoring only one half-century. Both teams have won a match each so far.
The Indian captain lost his wickets to the England seamers in all five innings. He has been caught behind the stumps by edging the moving balls. Kohli lost his wickets twice to his arch-rival James Anderson and Ollie Robinson, while he fell once to Sam Curran.
Virat Kohli played well to score a half-century after a break of eight innings but soon edged an outside-off delivery from Robinson to Jos Buttler. Kohli’s dismissal triggered the Indian batting collapse and the visitors lost the game by an innings and 76 runs. The 32-year-old Indian star has not hit a hundred in Test cricket since November 2019.
