Former India captain Virat Kohli has a habit of taking singles or doubles before hitting boundaries. This approach has brought him success across formats in international cricket.
However, the arrival of Rohit Sharma and Rahul Dravid, and team’s failure in the ICC T20 World Cup in the UAE, forced the management to play an attacking brand of cricket.
Even Virat Kohli has accepted this new philosophy but the results haven’t been good for him, according to Sanjay Manjrekar. The veteran player feels Virat has gone ahead with the change despite his failures since a long time.
“Virat Kohli didn’t care about whether he was getting runs or whether he was getting out because he desperately needed runs in England but he still sort of backed up the Indian team’s new philosophy. He was trying to hit boundaries from ball number one,” said Sanjay Manjrekar.
