Virat Kohli batting for Indian team is very much impressive and makes him million of fan who reacts on his every action of Cricket. Virat Kohli has scored 10,533 runs in International cricket at a staggering average of 59.51 that include 39 centuries and 49 half centuries in just 222 One Day International games.
Virat will be one of the biggest threats for Australia in the upcoming five-match One Day International series that gets underway from Saturday 2nd of March 2019 in Hyderabad and Finch reckons dismissing him earlier will be the key for Australia.
“I think everyone’s tried everything [against Kohli]. He’s the greatest one-day player of all time. His record speaks for itself. It’s unbelievable. You have to get him early, it’s as simple as that. If he gives you half a chance you have to take it otherwise once he gets in he’s so dominating and tough to get out,” Finch said on Friday.
Finch reckons that the first 10-15 balls that Kohli faces will be the key and they need to be quite disciplined when dealing with him.
“We’ve seen in the past we’ve had some success against him. He’s had a lot of success against us as well. It’s about being as disciplined as you can, for as long as you can. If you let him dictate and get away early, it can be hard to catch up. You just have to be as good as you can early, especially his first 10-15 balls, really challenge his defence. And you need a bit of luck at times too, no doubt. He’s an unbelievable player,” he said.
The way a professional player think and understand each other and share their thoughts are highly worthy.
