India had another disappointing performance with the bat on Tuesday. However, the captain Virat kohli shine with a fierce 79 knockout in the first turn of the Third Test and the final match against South Africa.

Former South African all-rounder Shaun Pollock said the India captain came out with the mindset to give his best and get the big score. Speaking to Cricbuzz, Pollock said:

“Spiritual application was key for him. I think he came in with the mindset of ‘I haven’t hit 100 yet so I’m just going to be stuck here and trying to get a big score and try to hit the triple mark. number.’ He was very, very cautious about what he did.

He went on to explain:

“It’s the fiftieth slowest ball he’s ever aggregated. The slowest is 170 odd balls, I think it’s in Nagpur on a very slow surface. And the third slowest ball is 120 balls so it just shows. displayed on the scale. it fits.”

Pollock commends Kohli for not chasing deliveries outside the tree. He say:

“I also think, the selection of the shot. He’s not chasing anything, very conscious of waiting for the bad balls. There are a couple of left-half shots thrown to him and every time he does. He hit one of those balls, he shot. It was a different Virat Kohli inning and I have to say, I enjoyed it.”

India wicketkeeper-batter Dinesh Karthik, in conversation with Pollock, also complimented Kohli’s hit. He say:

“Kohli is a great example of someone who has a lot of shots, a lot of shots and is one of the most talented hitters, going out and finishing. He leaves the ball – that’s his number of balls. He’s left the most out of the first fifty balls he’s played – lots of great stats coming from his plays today.”

He added:

“You always enjoy it when a hitter is working at his best, but there’s something really special when someone is gutting it out there. It’s totally the opposite of what he’s capable of. innate ability.”

It’s special to see the biggest talents and stroke makers dig deep, play hard and find a way to last for the long haul to achieve greatness. @imVkohli 👑#SAvIND #DKommBox https://t.co/VLonyileHe
