Former Indian cricketer, Sanjay Manjrekar has opined that the Indian stalwart, Virat Kohli has improved his game since the Asia Cup 2022 and is trusting his power game more in recent times. Manjrekar further added that Kohli seemed low on confidence earlier but he has got it back and has driven himself to confidence with brilliant stroke-making.
After going through a lean patch ahead of Asia Cup 2022, Virat Kohli has regained his form in recent times. Kohli has been scoring consistently once again and he played a match-winning knock of 63 runs from 48 balls in the third T20I was laced with three fours and four sixes. Kohli was also involved in a crucial 104-run partnership which helped the team set up a victory in the third ODI against Australia.
Sanjay Manjrekar further added that Virat Kohli has been trusting his power game lately and that has helped him score runs consistently.
Talking about the same during a recent chat with Sports18, Sanjay Manjrekar said, “See, right from the Asia Cup, every match that he got runs, not just the runs, there was some improvement coming. I think the power game is back, he is trusting his power game. There was a time when he was getting runs but his power game was not coming at his beck and call that is starting to happen.”
Virat Kohli was the highest run-getter for India in the Asia Cup 2022 and he was also the second highest run-scorer in the tournament. Also, his form will be very crucial for India in the upcoming T20 World Cup 2022. Manjrekar opined that Kohli has revived his confidence lately.
Elaborating the same, Sanjay Manjrekar said, “He’s dispatching good balls for big boundaries and sixes. It’s all about confidence, this is a guy who’s damn self-confident and drives himself to excellence, but for long-time runs weren’t coming and his confidence was tender.”
