Fans and pundits often praise Virat Kohli’s fitness and intensity on the field. Kohli is always revved up and looking to pounce on every opening the opposition provides, whether it’s a practise session or a World Cup knockout. His energy and fielding sometimes generate opportunities. Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis, and Shoaib Malik praised Virat Kohli’s fitness and energy.
Akram suggested Kohli could have been disheartened when he was replaced as ODI captain after quitting as T20I captain after India’s 2021 T20 World Cup performance. Pakistan’s great pacer stated Kohli’s intensity has not waned.
Ex-India batter: “Kohli’s deceptive fielding cost us 5 runs”
“I was demoted as captain for not making a face, etc. I’ll merely stand at short fine-leg, but he said no, I’m out as captain. I will bat and be India’s top fielder “Asports.com quoted Akram.
Waqar Younis, Akram’s former new-ball partner and fellow panellist, stated in Pakistan, a captain loses his spot when the leadership duties are removed.
“In Pakistan, dropped captains go home. I can’t think of a Pakistani player who was dropped as captain and is now a star “Adding, Shoaib Malik, a Pakistani all-rounder who has played against Kohli, praised him for playing a T20 like a 40-over game.
“Virat Kohli teaches us this. In Pakistan, people with collars up celebrate runs. Be a team player whether you have scored runs or not. He plays all 40 overs with same passion. Kohli always helps the squad on the field. No matter if he scored 100 or 0, “saying Kohli is hot. He has 222 runs in T20 World Cup 2022. He’s struck three half-centuries in four matches and surpassed Mahela Jayawardene’s T20 World Cup run record.
