Tuk tuk kohli..

 

RCB mgmt needs to grow a pair and release him, in process freeing up 15 cr that can be used to buy some better players.

 

who knows like other RCB players, Kohli might start performing in other franchisee or screw them over too.

It almost cost RCb the game yesterday. If not for DK they would have ended below par score and lose the match. Kohli needs to atleast maintain a 130 SR minimum otherwise he has no business being in a T20 side.

 

I have never seen any GOAT player degrade against spin so fast and so much. 

 

Even at end of their career Sachin and Lara were monsters against spin. Primarily cos with every other shot they were excellent playing the sweep. Sachin even developed the paddle sweep which so many players play now. 

 

Kohli never made an effort to learn how to sweep the spin bowler effectively and his down the ground and leg side wrist shots at his peak were so dominant he didn't care. Now when fielders are placed for that knowing he won't sweep he is getting in trouble again and again. Even yesterday dismissal ball was a perfect ball to sweep but he chose to play an extravagant on drive cos he can't sweep and got bowled. If he wants to keep playing he needs to go back to domestic and start practicing sweep and even reverse sweeps.

The reason he is struggling so much now is that he never developed a lot of shots in his game and relied on his hand-eye coordination to play other shots where traditionally some better shots can be played. Now with age, his hand-eye coordination is shot so he is now getting in trouble. Ex: he has literally no cut shots or late shot to get the ball in point to third man regions thus for good to shortish length balls, he ends up playing a poke-drive kinda shot on the up which was fine when he was good but now getting him out. Sachin, Dravid etc, all had excellent range of cut shots for such balls. Sweep was another example which you explained well. Sachin had slog sweep, grounded sweep, paddle sweep etc. No spinner were able to trouble him much even at the f** end of his career due to this excellent range. Kohli as a batter has a very limited range which is getting exposed now.

More than everything it's his ability to not listen to anyone that is causing his downfall. Should go back his old coaches or someone and sort out his game. Sachin completely changed his game after he got tennis elbow, guy even listened to a fking waiter who said that his bat swing has changed. If someone tells that to Virat he'll bulldoze that hotel itself. Even MSD changed his playing style completely in the last few years of his career and technically he's a much much poorer batsman than Virat but doesn't let his ego come in the way while batting.
