Kohli refuted Ganguly's statement (Virat Kohli vs Sourav Ganguly), saying he was never told to continue in his role in the game's shortest format.

Virat Kohli is facing flak for his ordinary batting display in the ongoing Test series between England and India. The skipper was once again dismissed while chasing the delivery outside off stump.

Former England captain Michael Vaughan stated that the Indian captain has lost his off-stump but he is a better player than this and can certainly score runs in the next Test match.

“Really good bowling, not good batting. Virat Kohli is a better player than that. When he had success in English conditions, he was knowing exactly where his off-stump is. His trigger movement goes over to the off-stump and he knows where it is,” Vaughan said on BBC’s Test Match Special podcast.

“So far in this series, I just wonder whether he lost his off-stump because he is going over quite a long way and his head is going with him because of that, I think he thinks his off-stump is around the fourth and fifth stump line. He needs to get back into alignment.

“He played at a wide ball from the pavilion end and you would think, that’s exactly where England want you to be Virat. They are going to bowl the fifth stump, full of length. And they want him to throw his hands at the ball as he did today,” he added.
