The ICC T20 World Cup, 2022 is going to start in Australia from 16th of next month. From this perspective, the form of great Indian batsman Virat Kohli became very important for the Indian team. After performing well in the Asia Cup-T20I 2022, Virat Kohli also showed a great game against Australia in the 3-match T20I series (IND vs AUS T20I Series, 2022). In the match played in Hyderabad last Sunday, 25 September, Virat Kohli played a brilliant innings of 63 runs while raining fours and sixes and made a great partnership with Suryakumar Yadav. In this series, India won 2-1.
Looking at Virat Kohli’s stellar performance, former Indian team batsman Ajay Jadeja said that since the retirement of MS Dhoni, 33 Virat Kohli has become the best ‘Chase Master’. In his exclusive conversation with a sports news agency, Ajay Jadeja said, “I believe this is very important for Indian cricket. It’s been a long time. There was a time when Virat Kohli used to score a lot of runs and MS Dhoni used to finish the match.
Now the presence of Virat Kohli makes it easy for the other players of the team to play. I have always believed that Virat Kohli’s strength has not been his ability to score runs, but his perseverance. That’s why he was the chase master. He is a ‘Chase Master’. He understands the pace of the game very well.”
Ajay Jadeja said on Virat Kohli’s batting consistency that, he may not have the ability to play as freely as some other players in India and some other players in the world, but no player can stick around his consistency. If you talk about consistency, they have been doing this for the last 10-15 years. It is meaningless to compare them to others.
