IND vs AUS : Mark Waugh surprised by Virat Kohli’s century

The Indian batsmen’ capacity to contend with top-tier spin spinners has been called into doubt following the third Test match between India and Australia in Indore. Former Australian cricketer Mark Waugh is perplexed by Virat Kohli’s lack of runs in red-ball cricket, despite the fact that the majority of the Indian hitters have struggled throughout the series.

Virat Kohli’s explosive century against Afghanistan in the Asia Cup last year put an end to his century dry spell. The batting prodigy added three hundreds in the 50-over event after scoring his first century in a T20I. However, against Bangladesh in 2019, Kohli scored his final century in the game’s conventional style. Although appearing to be in fine touch with the bat, Mark Waugh believes the Indian hitter has been quite unlucky with his dismissals and gets out cheaply.a bat.

A player of his calibre going that long without a hundred is unfathomable to me. He has recently been in good form and has played well in one-day cricket. Even though it’s not a Test match, his last three innings in Test cricket have shown that he’s actually playing quite well.

He’s a player of the highest calibre, and I have the impression that he’s not far from reaching 100. He is definitely feeling the pressure. He seems a little tense when he stands there in the middle, in my opinion. He actually plays with very hard hands because he enjoys the feel of the bat on the ball.

He does have a tendency to land on his front foot, which is technically not a good move.to India. He has played back in the crease a few times, which is a position that works well against slower pitches. Although there is no overt weakness, he seems to make one mistake and disappear, the man said.
