Virat Kohli’s career so far has been seen, so far his record in England has not been good. In England, he has scored only 134 runs in the five Test matches at an average of 13.40, with the highest score of 39 runs. In the 10 ODIs, he has scored 291 runs with an average of 32.33 and a strike rate of 85.58, which includes one century and one half-century. At the same time, he has scored 70 runs with the highest score of 66 in two T20 matches. Team India’s tour of England under the leadership of Virat Kohli is starting on Tuesday in T20 Series match at Manchester. Team India, who had defeated Ireland in two Twenty20 matches, still have the courage to maintain their winning streak. England is also ready to beat Team India in their own home where they had whitewashed Australia. Both teams are considered to be very strong.
Only in England, Virat has to prove himself. Virat’s Test average outside England is 53.40, while in England has an average of justs 13. In comparison to Virat’s average of 58.10 in ODIs, Virat’s average is 32.33 in England. Compared to an average of 48.58 in T20 International, Virat has an average of 35 in two matches played in England.
Indeed, except for the Indian subcontinent, there is a special difference between the pitches in England and outside the England, which will be a tough test for Virat. Wherever there is fastpitch in the world, the ball does not swing for long, but England is the only country where the conditions are such that there is a ball swing throughout the day.
