Zimbabwe skipper, Craig Ervine has acknowledged that his team doesn’t have any plans set for the former Indian skipper, Virat Kohli, and claimed that the star batter is just too good to make any plans. India will be locking horns with Zimbabwe in their final Super 12s match, with a win guaranteeing Rohit Sharma and his men a spot in the semi-finals. Kohli comes into the clash in top form having scored three half-centuries in four games and having been dismissed only once in the tournament.

The star batter is the tournament’s leading run-getter in the tournament at the moment, with 220 runs under his belt from four innings and a staggering average of 220. With India aiming to recapture the T20 World Cup 2022, Kohli will be the key man for them in the pursuit of gold.

Speaking ahead of the clash on Sunday, as quoted on ICC’s official website, Craig Ervine said that he reckons Zimbabwe’s fast bowlers will be raring to go against India’s strong batting order.

As per the quotes in India Today, Craig Ervine said, “This is a great opportunity to bowl against some of the best guys in the world, so there’s no reason why guys would not want to actually get out there and produce the goods. How often do you get the opportunity to put Virat Kohli in your pocket? I’m pretty sure that our fast bowlers will be raring to go come tomorrow.”

Zimbabwe skipper then went on to admit that Zimbabwe doesn’t have any set plans for Kohli and praised the star batter. The Zimbabwe skipper said that the bowlers will have to come out and hit a good area at the end of the day for players like Kohli.

Elaborating the same, Crag Ervine said, “I don’t think we have any plans against Virat. I think he’s just too good a player. A lot of the guys you can dissect so many different theories, and at the end of the day, if you come out and hit a good area, use your change-ups, all those sort of things, I don’t think that special plans really work for these guys because they’re so good at adapting to different conditions and different situations.”
