‘You just cannot ignore the contributions made by Virat Kohli’-Sanjay Manjrekar feels Virat Kohli should be appreciated for adopting India’s new approach

Asia Cup 2022: Sanjay Manjrekar believes that Virat Kohli should be commended for making an effort to adopt India’s aggressive batting strategy during the T20I series against England.

Kohli, who has been struggling to score runs as of late, made an effort to play an aggressive game right from the start of the Twenty20 Internationals against England. The strategy, on the other hand, did not provide the outcomes that he had hoped for since he was out for a low score in both of his innings.

What did Sanjay Manjrekar say about Virat Kohli?

During a chat on the program “Sports Over the Top” on Sports 18, Manjrekar was asked if Indian supporters should welcome the fact that Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, and Kohli are coming back together or whether they should be a bit apprehensive about the situation. In response, he said:

“They have reason to be joyful since class has returned. In the Twenty20 format of the series that was played in England, India’s Virat Kohli has received some first-hand knowledge of their new strategy. So it may be said that he has accepted it, if not very well, but he has accepted it. You just cannot ignore the contributions made by Virat Kohli.”

Manjrekar observed that the former captain of the Indian cricket team had an unselfish attitude in the match against England. The former cricket player turned sports commentator elaborated as follows:

“He didn’t care if he was getting runs or getting out because he desperately needed runs in England and he is looking for international runs, but he still sort of backed up the Indian team’s new philosophy. He was making an effort to hit boundaries from the very first ball.”

While attempting to hit a big shot off of Richard Gleeson’s bowling in the first Twenty20 International that Kohli participated in, he was out for only one run. In the last Twenty20 international, the contemporary batting great smacked a ball from David Willey straight to Jason Roy at short extra cover. Roy was there to take the catch.
