the habit of playing the ball away from the body
The Indian captain has been getting out in the same way for some time now. Sam Karen’s ball going far outside the off-stump, which was probably not even touching the 7th stump, Kohli tried to play it. He has been out earlier also due to the habit of playing the ball away from his body. When Kohli got out like this, former India captain Sunil Gavaskar doubts whether the intention shown by Kohli on the fourth day was the right approach.
In the beginning of the innings, Kohli is teasing the outgoing balls more.
Talking to Sony Sports Network, Gavaskar said that this method has been successful for him. Kohli has scored 8 thousand Test runs with that movement. But he is trying to play the ball outside the off-stump and at the beginning of the innings he is doing so much more. This time the captain’s leg is somewhere else and the bat is somewhere else. It means he is not playing properly. He said that in 5 days of play, every batsman goes to score runs. This method is different.
