Aakash Chopra has stated that Virat Kohli was not at his best with the bat in the first ODI against West Indies. Kohli scored 8 runs off 4 balls, but he was dismissed while playing a hook shot on Alzarri Joseph’s delivery.

“It is a problem. I don’t remember when I have seen Virat playing like that. He hit two fours, then a shot and then out. This is not the Virat of old.”

The former India cricketer pointed out that Kohli’s approach was completely different from what he saw in the ODIs against South Africa.

“He struggled in South Africa but scored runs, but he played a bizarre knock, a very strange kind of knock against the Keron Pollard-led team,” he added.

He concluded by saying that the 33-year old might not be in the right frame of mind at the moment. “His mindset is probably not at the right place.”
