Even now everyone is worried that will Kohli be seen batting in his old style again? Reason- famine of runes. Kohli, who started off well in IPL 2022, is now yearning for every single run. Especially in the last two consecutive matches, everyone is surprised by getting out on the very first ball. Obviously Kohli is getting different advice as well. One such advice has been given by former Indian batsman Wasim Jaffer. (Wasim Jaffer) Ne, who believes that Kohli should come down while changing the batting position.
Virat Kohli, the former captain of Royal Challengers Bangalore, was opening in the last season. Although, even then he did not look very strong, but he was not struggling like this. Then this season, RCB bet on young batsman Anuj Rawat and along with new captain Faf du Plessis gave him a long chance by taking him for the opening, but he too has failed to impress in this matter. In such a situation, many people are demanding that Kohli should be fielded again for the opening, where he has a good record.
Make a run by playing at number 4-5 – Jaffer
Wasim Jaffer is also suggesting a change in Kohli’s batting position, but his suggestion is different from the rest. Jaffer believes that Kohli should move to fourth or fifth position instead of number three, to help him avoid early swing. crickettracker Speaking at an event of the former Indian opener said, “Virat should come back to number four or maybe even fifth, when the ball is not swinging, and then score a few runs and then try a way to get back to number three.”
Kohli getting into trouble in the initial overs
This suggestion of Jaffer is important in this context because RCB are not getting a good start in the opening and in almost every match Kohli is coming to the crease till the second-third over. In such a situation, due to the swing in the middle of the bad phase, he is getting into more trouble. By the way, Kohli has been playing for Bangalore and the Indian team at number three in T20 for a long time. He has opened many times for RCB, but he has not batted much at number four. In recent times, during the T20 World Cup last year, he came to bat at number four in one or two matches.
