Virat Kohli is full of appreciation for Rohit Sharma, the captain, for the type of “connection” they had, which allowed Rohit Sharma to remain at ease and revert to his “natural template”.
In the pointless Super 4 Asia Cup game versus Afghanistan, Kohli finally scored his 71st international hundred. After the game, the two captains could be seen on television having serious conversations and the occasional joke.
There are many ways to skin a cat, and Kohli informed his captain that he had come to the realisation that he should adhere to his tried-and-true “template,” where hitting sixes isn’t always a priority.
I can (strike sixes) if the circumstances requires, but I am better at finding gaps, so as long as I can smash many boundaries, it will still serve the purpose, said Kohli. “I banked on solid cricketing shots and six hitting is not a big strength of mine,” Kohli said.
