Former Australia Chinese bowler Brad Hogg thinks Virat Kohli will very soon end the drought of an international century. Hogg says he saw some technical changes in the second innings of the third Test between India and England, where Kohli scored half a century.
Brad Hogg, Australia’s former spinner who played seven friendlies for his country, has assumed that sooner or later Virat Kohli will make his 71st international 100. The 50-year-old pointed out that Virat Kohli made changes to his technique during the second innings of the Leeds Test.
Notably, after scoring 0, 42, 20 and 7 in his first four innings of the tour, Virat Kohli looked confident in his second appearance at Headingley, scoring 55 runs before getting another delivery from Ollie Robinson in the hands of his counterpart Joe Root stuck out.
“I predict Virat Kohli will score a hundred somewhere along the line. I just think he realized the difference in his technique two years ago from what it is now. I just saw in the last innings that there were minor adjustments on the way he set it up. If Virat Kohli is on the right track, he doesn’t take the time to turn it around. So for me, watch out for a big score from Virat Kohli,” Hogg said in a video posted on his YouTube is uploaded channel.
The Indian skipper has been found guilty of fending off the balls that went outside the stump in the ongoing series, which is inadvisable to do against the Dukes ball in England. Ollie Robinson, James Anderson and Sam Curran managed to get him out by throwing the ball outside the stump. The 32-year-old is currently on average at 24.80 after 5 innings of the 5-Test series.
Hogg also added that teams like Australia and England are afraid of the Indian captain if he forces himself on the opposition.
“I think Virat Kohli is a very good skipper. I think he is a skipper that Australia and England are afraid of. He just pushes himself on the opponent. We only suffered one loss here, so this is where you ask good leaders other than mediocre leaders is the way they come back from adversity,” Hogg said before opting out.
