T20 WC 2022: Pakistan’s Veteran cricketer Shoaib Malik has given the example of Virat Kohli’s innings and hinted the Pakistani batsmen to improve their batting. In the T20 World Cup 2022, in the Indo-Pak match held on Sunday, Kohli played a wonderful innings of 82 runs off 53 balls. He scored runs very intelligently and at a slow pace in the beginning and then later he fiercely broke on the Pakistani bowlers.
On this innings of Virat, Shoaib says, ‘Look at the sixes that Virat hit. He was hitting sixes in such a way that he is a power hitter, whereas he is not such a batsman. But the number of balls he faced in the match gave him an idea of what the bowler was going to do and how the pitch was behaving.
Pak batsman’s flaw explained by giving example of Virat
Giving this example of Virat, Malik targeted the mistake of Pakistan’s middle order batsman Haider Ali. Haider Ali was dismissed in this match after scoring 2 runs in 4 balls. He was giving a catch to Suryakumar at long on in order to play a big shot.
Malik said on Haider Ali, ‘The new batsman (Haider Ali) came and he (Rohit Sharma) sent back to midwicket. His plan was clear that he was going to bowl a certain length. At that time it was necessary that the strike should be rotated. That’s how you could understand the wicket and guess at which length the bowler would bowl.
Malik out of T20 World Cup squad
Pakistan’s Veteran cricketer Shoaib Malik is not a part of his team’s T20 World Cup squad this time. Despite strong performances in domestic matches and PSL 2022, he could not find a place in the team.
