Shane Warne's advice on getting Virat Kohli out

Sports

10 Mar 2019

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.

Here's what Warne said about Kohli

Protection

Do not attack; protect both sides of the wicket

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.

Doesn't matter

Kohli seems to have answers for all the plots

No matter what the plot is, Kohli seems to have all the answers.

Since 2016, Kohli has faced 64.95% of the balls outside off while 31.01% have been straight.

He has responded to the outside-off balls with an average of 85.76, only slightly lower than his overall average of 88.55.

Interestingly, Australia have bowled 51.15% of the deliveries outside in the ongoing ODI series.

Kohli is GOAT? Warne confused!

GOAT

King Kohli to rule for quite some time now

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."
