New Delhi, 18/4 (AO Bureau):
Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Virat Kohli did not bat against Kolkata Knight Riders in the 10th match of the Indian Premier League 2021. Virat Kohli scored 5 runs in 6 balls and his wicket was taken by a bowler who does not get a place in Team India citing poor fitness. Virat Kohli’s wicket was taken by Mystery spinner Varun Chakravarthy. Chakraborty finished Virat Kohli’s work on the second ball of his first over.
Kolkata captain Ayan Morgan handed the ball to Varun Chakraborty in the second over and he showed Virat Kohli the path of the pavilion as soon as he came. Virat Kohli tried to play a big shot off the ball of Varun Chakraborty but the ball did not hit the bat properly and Rahul Tripathi made an excellent dive and forced Virat Kohli to go out.
Varun Chakraborty does not get a place in Team India!
One who specializes in bowling the legendary batsman like bowler Virat Kohli. The same bowler against whom the big aggressive batsman is seen to be silent, the same Varun Chakraborty does not get a place in Team India. Varun Chakraborty was recently selected for Team India for the T20 series against England but did not get a chance citing poor fitness. He could not connect with Team India and was asked to work on his fitness in Bangalore. Varun Chakraborty also got a place in Team India for the tour of Australia but due to injury he dropped out.
Sehwag targeted Virat on the issue of Varun Chakraborty
Let me tell you, when Varun Chakraborty did not get a chance to play in Team India, Virat Kohli said in a press conference that he wants such players whose fitness is amazing. They will never compromise on the issue of fitness. After this, former opener Virender Sehwag had targeted Virat Kohli and said that skills are more important than fitness in cricket. Sehwag even went on to say that even the legendary players like Sachin, Sourav Ganguly, VVS Laxman were not so fit but on the basis of their skills, they won many matches to the team.
