Former Indian cricketer Sanjay Majrekar opened up about Virat Kohli’s improved form in T20I cricket since last year. India recently finished their series with Australia last week. It was a victory for India after hosting Australia for a three-game T20I series. Virat Kohli is India’s leading batsman, who is back in for after a long time. 

Virat Kohli was suffering from scoring runs since last year and had a terrible start to the year. He was even rested for the tour of the West Indies. In the Asia Cup, Kohli made his comeback and became the leading scorer of the tournament. He scored a century against Afghanistan and achieved his long waited 71st century.

Sanjay Manjrekar talked about his development from Asia Cup to becoming the leading batsman in the recent series against Australia. “…right from the Asia Cup every match that he got runs, not just the runs, there was some improvement coming. I think the power game is back. He is trusting his power game,” Majrekar said on Sports 18.

Majrekar further talked about him coming back to his original groove of smashing the ball directly towards the boundaries. It led him to become the fastest run scorer in both limited-overs formats. “There was a time when he was getting runs but his power game was not coming at his beck and call. That is starting to happen. He dispatching good balls for bigs boundaries and sixes. It’s all about confidence. This is a guy who’s damn self-confident and drives himself to excellence was tender.”

The former cricketer also mentions his performance in the Asia cup, in which he truly made his comeback. “During the Asia Cup, slowly and steadily, certain things start to happen, the pull shots came in, and the sixes started going more into stands than just going over the rope as it was going in the IPL. So, the pieces falling back to frame the perfect picture. Now it’s all about putting all these kinds of performances in the main event,”
