Real Test for Virat Kohli starts when he enters the field at Edgbaston, Birmingham. Last time when India played a test series in England we lost 3-1. Virat’s failed to score runs which leads India to disasters series lost. King of swing Anderson won the battle against our captain courageous. Kolhi just scored 1, 8, 25, 0, 39, 28, 0,7, 6 and 20 in 5 match series.
Now the question is can he prove the world he is the best batsman in the world. Only time will tell if he scores in England then the world will happily accept he is the best in the world. But it won’t be easy against the pair of Anderson and Stuart broad who shared 957 wickets between them in the test. They complement really well that’s the success of this pair.
England bowling looks really strong when Anderson and Broad bowls together in their own backyard which offers more swing. The deadly duo of the current era is compared to the legendary duo of West Indies Walsh and Ambrose.
To overcome this strong attack we need a power-packed, composed and an astonishing batsman who can attack this legendary pair. If we search for this quality only one batsman can do it, its none other than King Virat Kohli. The last series in England was a bad dream for Virat. He is completely outplayed by the English on their home soil.
Every legend of cricket accepts Virat is the best batsman in the world but his odds against England in their home makes a doubt of his ability because the likes of Smith, root has a better average then Virat. This series will test the ability of Kohli. Can he silence his critics by scoring big or he surrenders like 2014? Only time will tell.
But after this disasters tour of England Kohli got better and better as he scored 4 hundred against mighty Aussies on their backyard. His last tour in England he just scored 134 runs in 10 innings of the 5 Tests series at an average of 13.40 and his highest score is just 39.
But in Australia, everything has been changed. His scoring shots were on the spot, and timing at his best. He starts the series with 115 on first innings, then 141 in second innings.
Then two complete failure in Brisbane (19,1) where India down to 2-0 in the series.
This kind of things brings best of Kohli the wounded lion back with a bang as he scored his highest 169 at that time. This innings was admirable as he just scored with ease.
After that, he scored 4 double hundred’s and in South Africa, he scored 153 on the pacey, bouncy pitch against the world class bowling attack. Last time English bowling attack got better of Kohli but this time I hope Virat will get better of them. Cricket will be joyful when Strong batting and Strong bowling fight for their pride.
