“There Is Greatness In His Batting For Sure”, Claims Sanjay Manjrekar Heaping Praise on Kohli’s Wonderful Knock Against Sri Lanka

The match between India and Sri Lanka concluded yesterday at the iconic Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai with the Men in Blue lodging its biggest win in the history of the World Cup. With Sri Lanka winning the toss and having chosen to bowl, India set up a exalted target of 358 for Sri Lanka dismissing Sri Lankan batters for a paltry score of 55 runs. This was indeed a spectacular win for the Men in Blue as they knocked out Sri Lankans within just 20 overs of the second innings. While the Indian bowling unit delivered enchanting spells with Shami taking a breathtaking 5-wicket haul, Shuan Gill, Virat Kohli and Shreyas Iyer displayed their top-class batting prowess.

After opener Shubman Gill who smashed a powerful 92-run knock for India, Virat Kohli essentially didn’t fail to impress with the bat having made a significant contribution for team India as always, scoring 88 runs off 94 balls. While he didn’t hit a single six, his brilliancy with the bat remains unmatched having smashed a total of 11 boundaries. His ability to score runs at the time of pressure is undoubtedly exceptional with counting on his efforts to not even miss a single run. 

Sanjay Manjrekar, former Indian cricketer while speaking about Kohli making runs in an innings, also heaped praise for his swashbuckling knock against Sri Lanka. He asserted “We saw it in the Asia Cup as well that KL Rahul was suffering slightly in their partnership. There is greatness in his batting for sure if a batter won’t leave even one run under the sun, it’s Virat Kohli. I was actually surprised as it seemed like he missed a century that was there for the taking.”

Maintaining a healthy strike rate

Sanjay Manjrekar also spoke about how Kohli always ends up chasing runs within a healthy strike rate without even trying to do so. Virat Kohli is actually just a century away from smashing his 49th ODI century, that will lead him ahead of Sachin Tendulkar’s erstwhile record of 49 ODI centuries.
