Birmingham. Virat Kohli once again could not play a big innings. In the first innings of the 5th Test against England (IND vs ENG), the former Indian captain could only score 11 runs. Till the time of writing the news, India has lost 5 wickets for 105 runs in 29 overs. Rishabh Pant is playing 16 and Ravindra Jadeja is scoring 4 runs. In the match, England captain Ben Stokes won the toss and decided to bowl. The bowlers of the team have given him a good start in the match. Team India is currently leading 2-1 in the Test series. Now the English team would like to level the series by winning this match. The Indian team has not won a single Test at Edgbaston so far.

Virat Kohli was once again out on the ball going out of the off-stump. When the second session started due to rain, the English fast bowlers took full advantage of it. Kohli was dismissed for 11 runs by fast bowler Matthew Potts. He was trying to release the ball by going outside the off-stump. But the ball hit his bat and hit the wicket. He faced 19 balls and hit 2 fours. He has not been able to score a century in international cricket for 3 years.

The style of the game has to change

Former Indian cricketer Saba Karim raised questions on Virat Kohli’s style of play during commentary on Sony Sports. He said that Kohli is playing outside the off-stump. Because of this, he feels that he can play a shot on every ball. Because of this they are getting in trouble. Earlier, Shubman Gill and Cheteshwar Pujara came out to open for India, but they too could not play a big innings.
