Rashid Khan has praised Virat Kohli for sticking to a process in international cricket. The star spinner feels Virat is successful because he never deviates from his process, irrespective of the quality of bowlers. The India skipper has faith in his batting abilities and gives respect to good balls.
“If there is any other batsman, he will come under pressure if you bowl well to him. He will play a shot which is not his strength like a sweep, a slog sweep or any other different stroke,” Rashid said on the YouTube show ‘Cricast’.
“[But] Virat will follow his own process. He goes with his mind. He has his own style and he goes with that. He doesn’t do anything different. I think that is why he is very successful. He has a process.
“He will respect good balls. He will punish loose balls. He has great self-belief. Some batsmen don’t have self-belief. That is why they struggle. He believes in his own strength,” Rashid added.
Rashid Khan has been quite successful against Virat Kohli in the Indian Premier League. He has dismissed Virat Kohli on a number of occasions.
