“Surprised and Dejected” Ex-Pakistan Captain on Virat Kohli’s Performance against Sri Lanka

Ex-Pakistani cricketer Inzamam talked about Virat Kohli and his poor performance in the India-Sri Lanka match in the Asia Cup. He was surprised with his performance as he became the leading run-scorer of the tournament, yet scored zero runs. 

“I was surprised to see Virat Kohli bat. I was surprised and dejected too, because a top player, who seemed like breaking all batting records, looked under pressure. He played four dot balls, and he looked tense. When senior players looked tensed, like Rohit Sharma’s reaction when KL Rahul got out as he rarely shows emotions, it sends a message to the dressing room that you are under intense pressure,” Inzamam said in a video on his YouTube channel

“The junior players are under pressure. I was surprised to see it. Seniors may feel pressure from inside, but they don’t show pressure with their body language. The same message goes to the opposition also. But if you show that you are under pressure, then it sends a wrong message to one’s own team and the opposition team. Your team goes down, and the opposition goes up.”

In the game, India batted first and gave a target of 174 runs. Virat Kohli got out in the second ball and made zero runs. Captain Rohit Sharma smashed 72 runs, and Suryakumar Yadav made 34 runs. The Indian team didn’t perform in the bowling department either and failed to maintain a minimum economy. Sri Lanka beat the target and won the match by six wickets.
