Centurion: Former pace bowler Ashish Nehra has criticized Virat Kohli’s dismissal in the first Test against South Africa. Kohli started well in the Boxing Day Test but could not reach the top three. Kohli’s score was 35 when Lungi was bowled by Ngidi. The ball bounced off the stumps of Lungi Ngidi and came out as a collie edge.
‘We expect runs from a player like Virat Kohli. Despite getting off to a great start, Kohli is unable to reach the big score. I would love to see the balls coming at speeds of 135-150km / h playing on the front foot of the collie. But swinging the ball and finding the bounce can be a challenge for any batsman. If you look at the way he looks outside you will understand that Kohli needs to be careful. It was the South African bowlers who persuaded him to play such an unnecessary shot.
If you check out today’s out you will understand how Kohli plays on swing balls. It is advisable to leave such balls without hitting the shot. I could see it from KL Rahul. Statistics show that Collie found runs on his last tour of England. He has the thirst to score centuries and half-centuries. So he will be disappointed in his performance, ”Nehra said.
