The photographers focused their cameras on Virat Kohli when the Indian players got off the team bus to participate in an optional practise session at the ICC Academy on Tuesday night. As it turned out, Kohli skipped a second practice session before and after the Pakistan game last Sunday.
As everyone searched the area for Kohli, it was discovered that Rohit Sharma, the normal captain, was also absent. Rahul Dravid, the coach, was also. The top three Indian players, Rohit, KL Rahul, and Virat Kohli, have appeared rusty and far from their best, but Wednesday’s game against Hong Kong at the Dubai International stadium would be the perfect chance for them to get going.
It is clear that Jadeja the bowler has lost prominence in white-ball cricket, especially in T20Is, while Jadeja the batsman has become more important. Jadeja has always thought of himself as an impact player, but the team management has recently given him the opportunity to bat in the top order, like he did against Pakistan.
“Really, I don’t plan. Sometimes you don’t need to think too much when playing T20s. In any circumstance, you simply enter and begin to play. I don’t really believe that I am primarily a batsman in white-ball cricket and a bowler in tests. I simply understand that I must use the ball to score runs and make breakthroughs “explained Jadeja.
