“Virat has shown …”England’s Coach drops a massive praise for Kohli ahead of India vs England

Head coach Matthew Mott mentioned that England is cautious about the danger Virat Kohli could bring to their team in the T20 World Cup 2024 semi-final on June 27 at the Providence Stadium in Guyana. Kohli’s performance has been poor recently, with just 66 runs in 6 matches, averaging 11 runs per game, and a strike rate of 100, with his highest score being 37.

Mott mentioned that the English team respects Kohli and the presence he has. He explained that Kohli is quick to find his rhythm. Despite Kohli not scoring any runs in India’s recent match against Australia, Mott believes Kohli could perform well in important games based on his history of strong performances.

Virat has shown he’s really good at cricket for a long time. We’ve studied him carefully because we know he can be very powerful and smart in his playing style. Mott talked about this before the game.

Mott also mentioned that if the game needs a special kind of play, Virat can do it. He’s very important for his team. Mott reminded everyone that past games don’t matter when they play against each other tomorrow. Important players play their best in important moments. Mott hopes their players will do well, but he expects Virat to play his best too.

Kohli has done really well in T20 matches against England, scoring 639 runs in 20 games with an average of 39.93 and a strike-rate of 135.66. His best score, 80 not out, happened at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad in March 2021.

England is feeling very confident because they won their last game against USA by 10 wickets. Jos Buttler and his team want to be the first to win the T20 World Cup two times in a row.
