Virat Kohli is hoping that Ravindra Jadeja's absence from the tour of South Africa will not impact India's performance.

Former Australian spinner Brad Hogg believes that Virat Kohli has made adjustments to his technique in the last innings and backed the Indian skipper to end his hundred drought very soon. Kohli scored a fifty in the second innings of the third Test but he was dismissed by England seamer bowler Ollie Robinson.

Virat has been found wanting outside the off stump and has managed to score only 124 runs from five innings with the only half-century in the third Test.

“I am predicting that Virat Kohli will score a hundred somewhere along the line. I just think he has realized what difference was there in his technique two years ago from what it is now. I just saw in the final innings that there were slight adjustments in the way he set up. When Virat Kohli gets in the right, he doesn’t take time to turn it around. So for me, watch out for a big score from Virat Kohli,” Hogg said in a video uploaded on his YouTube channel.

Brad Hogg further added Kohli is a skipper that teams like England and Australia fear.

“I think Virat Kohli is a very good skipper. I think he is a skipper that Australia and England fear. He just imposes himself on the opposition. We have had just one loss here, so this is where you start asking questions.

“What sets good leaders apart from mediocre leaders is the way that they come back from adversity. But I know England fear Virat Kohli by the way he imposes himself in the middle,” Hogg signed off.
