IND vs PAK – Super 4 September 4
Virat Kohli can never be like Suryakumar Yadav or Rohit – according to Ex-PAK Player: The league round matches in the 2022 Asia Cup in the United Arab Emirates have concluded, and the Super 4 round matches have begun. In the series, which began on August 27, defending champions India, who are in Group A, have qualified for the Super 4 round by defeating archrivals Pakistan and Hong Kong in their two league matches. Following that, India will face archrival Pakistan again in its first Super 4 match on September 4, which has heightened fan excitement.
Criticism about Virat Kohli
Similarly, there is an expectation in this series that India’s hope star Virat Kohli will respond to criticism that he has not scored a century since 2019 by accumulating runs in a big way. Having scored 23,000+ runs and 70 centuries at a batting average of nearly 50 in the last 10 years for the Indian team across three formats, he has taken nearly a month’s rest to put an end to the criticism and is playing fresh in this series.
Virat faced criticism for playing slowly in the first match against Pakistan, where he scored 35 runs in 34 balls with the help of luck, but in the second match against Hong Kong, he hit 59* (44) without stumbling, with 1 four and 3 sixes at a strike rate of 130+. But everyone praised Suryakumar Yadav, who formed a 98-run partnership with him in that match and hit all fours, who hit 68* (26) with 6 fours and 6 sixes.
Surya the best t20 player
Many fans and ex-players refer to Surya as India’s Mr. 360 batsman because he has the ability to play action from the first ball no matter how stressful the situation is. He is currently in better form than Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, and Kl Rahul. Rashid Lathif, a former cricketer for Pakistan, claimed that despite Virat Kohli’s incredible batting average of 50, he is unable to play at a striking rate like Suryakumar Yadav or Rohit Sharma. That is why Virat did not win the IPL trophy.

Even if he bowls dot balls, Surya will compensate with powerful sixes. But Virat Kohli is incapable of doing so. So there’s no point debating whether Virat Kohli played slowly or quickly against Hong Kong. That is his natural strategy. He always tries to hit big shots after scoring 30-35 runs in IPL series. Similarly, Rohit Sharma will always use power play overs and do his best to stay until the end.

The reason for not getting single IPL trophy
Virat Kohli has not always been the best T20 player. His average is good but his strike rate is modest. We compare him with Steve Smith, Kane Williamson, Joe Root, Babur Azam. But none of them are match winners in T20 cricket, Rashid said.

In other words, strike rate is important for T20 cricket, but even if Virat Kohli has a batting average of 50, he will not be able to become a match winner like Suryakumar Yadav or Rohit Sharma in T20 cricket, says Rashid Latif.
