‘The wait might end in this series’ – Aakash Chopra expects Virat Kohli to end overseas century drought in Tests

Virat Kohli’s last overseas Test century came against Australia in 2018.

Former India captain Virat Kohli ended the drought of the century last year with a triple-digit record against Afghanistan. Hitting megastars also ended the Test Century drought earlier this year, but as of December 2018, they still have a ton of players from overseas waiting. Cricketer-turned-critic Aakash Chopra expects the Indian star could end a fruitless losing streak in the upcoming Test series against the Windies.

Virat Kohli’s top-level productive figures are testament to his exceptional batting performance. However, the batting champion has had problems in recent international testing and played his last century against Australia in Perth at the end of 2018. Kohli doesn’t have the best results in the Caribbean, but former India opener Aakash Chopra hopes Kohli will finish his practice in overseas testing.

“It is very interesting that Virat Kohli has not scored in an overseas Test Century for five years. The last time he scored was in 2018, and since then there has been no overseas Test Century.” The wait may be over. ” This series. To put it another way, his numbers are good against any team, but his two teams and places in the West Indies and England are slightly lower in his numbers based on his standards. but very good by other people’s standards. So the focus will be on Virat Kohli,” Chopra said in a video shared on his own YouTube channel.

Rahane could keep his place if he scored runs, otherwise vice-captain title wouldn’t do much: Chopra

Further, former cricketer on Ajinkhya Rahane’s situation within team also commented. Rahane regained the vice-captain role after a successful World Test Championship final against Australia, but Chopra said Mumbai’s batsman needs to score consistently to stay in the starting lineup. I believe.

“Ajinkya Rahane – It’s a fascinating story. He was out of the team for his 18 months, but suddenly he was in the World Test where he performed well in the final of the championship, becoming the team’s vice president. Became captain, but does that mean the place?Save? No, when Kohli was captain, he was also vice-captain.

It was South Africa, but he fell in the first test. So I think his position is not fixed. I feel like he has to score. If he scores he can defend his place, otherwise the title of vice-captain doesn’t do much,” he added.
