Shami reveals weak zone of Kohli of getting him out
As an honor to be the best batsman in the world, there is nothing but trouble. They are the center of the attention of the bowlers always. All the bowlers do research on how to get him out. As a result, the batsman has to work with his technique regularly to stay on top.
Sachin Tendulkar-Brian Lara has gone through the same ‘agony’ at one time. Now the same ‘agony’ is always Kohli’s daily companion. Former Pakistan pace bowler Shoaib Akhtar has talked about the way of getting out Virat Kohli a while ago. This time, however, the opponent did not have to go to Pakistan to seek the ‘enemy’ of the great one. Because he’s none other than Kohli’s teammate Mohammad Shami.
Despite being a national teammate, he has taken Kohli out in the Indian Premier League (IPL) multiple times. Kohli has been playing for Royal Challengers Bangalore since the beginning of the IPL. Meanwhile, Mohammad Shami is now in the Kings XI Punjab camp after playing for the Kolkata Knight Riders and Delhi Daredevils. However, no matter who the team is, Shami has been taken the wicket of Kohli several times. He has had success finding the weaknesses of Kohli and creating a game plan.
And the pace star has emphasized the gameplay or the specific plan to get Kohli out,
“It is easy to know the the strength of the cricketer who has played for a long time and spent a lot of time together. His weakness is also visible. My duty as a bowler is to make specific plans keeping those weak spots in mind. There is no doubt that Kohli is the best cricketer. However, the best ones also have weaknesses. Which can be planned in the usual manner. One has to focus on that weakness.”
Shami has not fully disclosed what Kohli’s weaknesses are. To find out, it was left up to the other bowlers to say, “What is the weakest point of a batsman? You have to find it and practice it again and again. I’ve taken his wicket several times in the IPL. Without saying much, I have to plan his weak spots. Only then can he be taken out.”
