Former India National Cricket Team player Sanjay Manjrekar feels that the power game of the modern-day batting great Virat Kohli is back and he is trusting his power game.
Virat Kohli had a stellar run in the Asia Cup 2022 as he smashed 276 runs in 5 games at an average of 92.00 and a strike rate of 147.59, including one century and two half-centuries. He failed to replicate his performance in the first two T20Is against Australia. However, in the third T20I, he showed a batting masterclass and helped India complete the run-chase to win the game by 6 wickets and the series by 2-1.

Suryakumar Yadav and Virat Kohli had an outstanding 104-run partnership in the 3rd T20I. Suryakumar Yadav got out in the 14th over after smashing amazing 69 runs off 36 balls, including 5 fours and 5 sixes. Virat Kohli scored good 63 runs off 48 balls, including 3 fours and 4 sixes, before getting out in the final over.
Speaking on SPORTS18’s daily sports news show ‘SPORTS OVER THE TOP’, Manjrekar talked about Kohli’s recent batting performance and said:
“See, right from the Asia Cup every match that he got runs, not just the runs, there was some improvement coming. I think the power game is back, he’s trusting his power game. There was a time when he was getting runs but his power game was not coming at his beck and call, that is starting to happen. He’s dispatching good balls for big boundaries and sixes.”
This is a guy who’s damn self-confident and drives himself to excellence – Sanjay Manjrekar on Virat Kohli
Former India National Cricket Team player further said that Kohli gained his confidence back during his stint in the Asia Cup 2022.
“It’s all about confidence, this is a guy who’s damn self-confident and drives himself to excellence but for long-time runs weren’t coming and his confidence was tender. But during the Asia Cup, slowly and steadily, certain things start to happen, the pull shots came in, and the sixes started going more into the stands than just going over the rope as it was going in the IPL.
“So, the pieces falling back to frame the perfect picture. Now it’s all about putting all these kinds of performances in the main event,” he added further.
