Former Indian cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar praised top batter Virat Kohli in advance of the Sri Lanka series. Manjrekar praised Kohli’s performance at the T20 World Cup and acknowledged that he wants Kohli to play as much cricket as possible. Manjrekar also predicted that Kohli would now face fierce competition from other players for his spot.
Manjrekar on ESPNCricinfo stated, “Virat Kohli had a pretty good World Cup.” “I would have liked him to play as much international cricket as he could. It’s good to be in the running, hit the ball almost every week, and be ready for the match situation. The problem is that Virat Kohli will now face pressure constantly from people who are getting opportunities in his place instead of him.
