Has Shane Warne decoded Virat Kohli's weakness?
Indian skipper Virat Kohli is, undoubtedly, the best batsman in world cricket today.
Be it any format of the game, Kohli is a thorn in the bowlers' flesh as they struggle to get him out every single time he comes out to bat.
However, Australian spin legend Shane Warne thinks he might have a way to restrict Kohli and get him out.
Do not attack; protect both sides of the wicket
Warne feels that the mistake most of the bowlers do against Kohli is attacking him.
Instead, he feels that using both sides of the wickets is a viable option.
Warne feels that teams should make him lay either on off or leg side, along with enough protection to restrict his scoring abilities.
Further, since he can score on both sides, no bowling straight.

Kohli is GOAT? Warne confused!
I just got asked if I thought @imVkohli is better than @BrianLara or @sachin_rt— Shane Warne (@ShaneWarne) March 9, 2019
Let me think about that and come back to you I said. @ivivianrichards to me was the best batsman after Bradman, but in modern times mmmmm. Tough one ! Thoughts followers whilst I contemplate ?
King Kohli to rule for quite some time now
No matter how hard one plots or how much one likes or hates him, Kohli is undoubtedly the GOAT of modern cricket.
He is ready to rule for a long time.
While he scripts records in almost every single game he plays, there would be no harm in saying that Kohli is already a legend and is a future Hall of Famer.
Kohli sets himself apart from everyone else
Warne, speaking on Kohli, says, "You know records are different in different eras and it's very hard to judge. All you can judge is how a player is in their era, and Virat Kohli is so far ahead in one-day cricket than everybody else."
