Former Pakistan cricketer and commentator Ramiz Raja has seemed to have figured out what India captain Virat Kohli can do to end his century drought and make it big in the coming World Test Championship against New Zealand.
“What I have seen in his batting off late, he has been playing cross the line towards the leg side, breaking his wrist. If he maintains his position and plays straight and then plays his flicks, then it won’t be a problem anymore,” Raja said while speaking to India News Sports.
Nonetheless, the ex-Pakistan man said there’s nothing to worry about since Kohli must be well aware of what he needs to tweak to regain his best form.
“As long as he plays the first 20-25 over straight and doesn’t break his wrist very much, he can succeed in this [WTC Final] Test match,” Raja added.
Not scoring centuries in the last year and a half doesn’t mean that the Chase Master has not batted well. His string of continuous half-centuries against top sides still speaks volumes of his greatness, but what shocks the cricket fraternity is seeing a player of his stature not reach the three figures in such a long time.
