WTC Final India vs New Zealand: Former England captain Nasser Hussain has questioned the way Virat Kohli got out. He compared it to Kohli’s tour of England in 2014.
- Nasser Hussain Said Virat Kohli Was Playing In WTC Finals Like 2014 Tour
- Hussain said that Kohli was harassed in 2014 on the balls outside the off-stump
- He said that during the 2018 tour of England, Kohli was leaving the balls outside the off-stump.
Former England captain Nasser Hussain has said that Indian captain Virat Kohli was dismissed in the second innings of the final of the World Test Championship in the same manner as he was dismissed in the 2014 tour of England.
Kohli was dismissed by New Zealand fast bowler Kylie Jamieson on a personal score of 13 runs. He was caught by BJ Watling on a ball from Jamieson. He kept the bat on the ball rising outside the off-stump.
Hussain said during the commentary, ‘Kohli was leaving these kinds of balls in 2018. He scored 593 runs on this tour. He said that the way Kohli got out, it was something like 2104 and not like 2018. Bowling on a similar line, James Anderson troubled him in 2014. The last time the Indian team played in England, Kohli was leaving these kinds of balls.
For Kohli, the tours of 2014 and 2018 have been completely different from each other. He had scored two centuries and three half-centuries on the 2018 tour. In 2014, he scored 134 runs. Kohli had described that 2014 tour as the worst time of his career.
Kohli scored 44 runs in the first innings of the World Test Championship final. In the second innings, he scored 13 runs. He was dismissed by Kyle Jamieson in both innings. Jamieson plays for Royal Challengers Bangalore, captained by Kohli, in the Indian Premier League.
