Just In: Virat Kohli To Make A Very Surprising And Massive Step Ahead Of The World Cup?


Remember Ravi Shastri recently made a statement about Virat Kohli’s batting position during the ICC World Cup 2019 which completely surprised the jury? The coach of the Indian Cricket Team stated that if the ball is swinging too much and if the conditions are not in the favour of the batsmen, he might wish to protect his best batsman considering the occasion is as big as the World Cup.

Having said that, many cricketing pundits around the world did not agree with the coach and believed that Kohli is too good a player to be batting at number 4 and if the team is in trouble it’s the captain who needs to come out and face the heat as he is the one who could do it the best. Meanwhile, the Indian Chief Selector MSK Prasad has interestingly backed Shastri’s move and stated that it’s a wonderful move to bat Kohli at 4. He further added that he does not mind Kohli batting at 4 if that adds further balance to the team.

Having said that he did accept that someone like a Kohli will always be irreplaceable at 3 but if it’s the need of the hour, The Indian Captain could very well demote himself.
