Akash Chopra Calls Virat Kohli a Lion: Virat Kohli has returned to the T20 internationals after a break that started right after the 2022 T20 World Cup. Now that he joined the team in the second match of the T20I series against Afghanistan, the GOAT showed glimpses of the skills that he has in his arsenal.
Akash Chopra Calls Virat Kohli a Lion, Says He Scares Opposition
Former Indian opener Akash Chopra thinks that Virat Kohli should stay at the crease for a longer time in the upcoming T20 World Cup. Chopra thinks that this would scare the opposition, as he compares the Indian star to a lion.
“Kohli has all types of gear. He can play fast or slow. He can play run-a-ball as well. Kohli is at his best when he stays for a long time. You feel scared going into a jungle because a lion is there,” he said.
“It’s not mandatory that the lion eat you whenever you enter a jungle, but the knowledge of the lion being there scares you. Virat Kohli is that lion. You (opposing teams) are always scared when Virat Kohli is at the crease.”
Kohli, in the last match against Afghanistan, scored 29 runs in 16 balls with a strike rate above 181, which is decorated with four boundaries.
