MSK Prasad, who is the former chairperson of the national selection committee, said that star batsman Virat Kohli will perform brilliantly in the finals of the World Test Championship against Australia.
Former chairperson of the national selection committee MSK Prasad said that star batsman Virat Kohli of RCB and the Indian cricket team will give a great performance in the final of the ICC World Test Championship against Australia as his form and state of mind are in a good place. Team India will be aiming to win the ICC World Test Championship as they are going to clash with the Aussies from June 7 onwards at The Oval. Virat will no doubt be one of India’s key players in the clash for the country’s first big ICC title since 2013.
In an interview, Prasad talked about the chances of Team India in the final, about the form of senior players like Virat Kohli, Captain Rohit Sharma, and Cheteshwar Pujara, and also about the inclusion of Ajinkya Rahane in the team.
Prasad said that Virat has set a high standard for himself, which has led to his fans expecting way too much from him.
Prasad said, “He did not have a very great 2021–22.” But that is because we expect a lot from him. He has set a very high standard for himself. He has to score hundreds in every match; otherwise, it is a failure. But he is a human after all. The captaincy pressure had him struggling for a while, but once he regained his rhythm and clarity, he did not look back. He has been in amazing form since last year’s Asia Cup and has made centuries in all formats. He must have in mind that India has not won an ICC tournament for years and must be fired up to give his best to help India win. With his form and state of mind in a good place and his seniority being above 100 tests, I am sure he will deliver in the WTC final.”
Since his return to the sport at the Asia Cup 2022, Virat has scored 1,596 runs in 38 innings, with five centuries and eight fifties. His runs have come at an average of 53.20.
