Aakash Chopra surprised by Virat Kohli’s four-ball, thought he looked rushed

Before India Cricket player Aakash Chopra described Virat kohlifour-ball innings in the first ODI game West Indies on Sunday in Ahmedabad is very surprising.

The former captain came on after Rohit Sharma’s hit and hit Alzarri Joseph in quick succession. However, he was killed shortly afterwards with a similar pitch, culminating in a long-legged hook.

Asked to share his views on the 33-year-old’s odd knock, Chopra said during a discussion about ESPN Cricinfo:

“Really surprising. He walked out like he was in a hurry. The first ball he tried something, the second ball he tried something. These are gorgeous photos that you wouldn’t associate Kohli with. It probably tells you that he’s not quite in the right mind. “

The 44-year-old insists that even in South Africa, the experienced hitter doesn’t look at his fluency even though he has scored twenty-five. Chopra explains:

“Even in South Africa, he looked completely different from a beater. He has scored but personally, watching him play, I am not 100% convinced that this is his best Virat Kohli. They are not the nicest in terms of scores, which can happen. But these four-ball innings, it seems like he’s not quite in the spirit when it comes to being comfortable with his game.”

Kohli scored 116 runs in three ODIs in South Africa but they hit a strike rate well below par 76.32.

“These are the early days for Ishan Kishan” – Aakash Chopra

In addition to Kohli, Ishan Kishan also struggled with sluggishness in Ahmedabad. Agreeing that the left-handed player doesn’t play a convincing shot, the former opener said:

“These are early days for Ishan Kishan. He has a special style of play, very good when the ball hits him. When people hit the short ball, he excelled with side shots. But the moment you start bowling fuller, you hit the ball slower and the ball doesn’t come to the club, that’s when he gets challenged. “

Kishan scored 28 goals from 36 passes on Sunday and opened the scoring for 84 with Rohit Sharma. He trained to deep square feet while trying to take on Akeal Hosein.
