Rajkumar Sharma is an Indian skipper who was Virat Kohli’s childhood coach. He claims that Virat Kohli is playing the key role in the current Test series against England. Though Kohli has shown a significant result in international cricket since November 2019, Rajkumar is certain that Kohli will do even better in his next three matches against England.
In the second match of the Test series, Virat Kohli impressively scored 42 and 24. The Indian skipper has spent a lot of time working hard to fix his weak places. He is expected to return with big innings soon. “England’s conditions are a bit different. The bowlers know Virat’s weakness now, but he is preparing well for that, and as I said he will be back with a big inning soon,” Rajkumar said.
Rajkumar noticed that the Indian team had strong bowling attackers during the England series. “We have a lovely pool of bowlers now. Those who can lead from the front, injury is common in fast bowling but we have a large pool of bowlers and a strong backup,” he noted.
In the first match, both teams showed a great performance in a close fight. However, the first match in the Test series finished in a draw. After that, England started dominating during the second match, but India had a comeback and crushed England with 151 runs at Lord’s Cricket Ground. The next meeting between these teams will happen on 25th August in Headingley, Leeds.
