Virat Kohli is considered one of the best cricketers of the modern generation. The 32-year-old captain has achieved many milestones and created many new records in his career. Kohli is way ahead of his competitors scoring 22000+ International runs at an average of 50+ in all three formats and 70+ century which is 3rd most by any cricketer.

The 32-year-old remains the main target of the opposition teams while playing matches for India and Royal Challengers Bangalore. Kane Williamson and team surely have made some plans to get rid of Kohli and to stop him from scoring big runs in the World Test Championship final.

South African legend Dale Steyn has penned some plans to decode Kohli’s mastery and send him back to the pavilion as quickly as possible.

“You’ve got to play the mind games with Virat. I would look at putting somebody in a short leg. I would let him know that I’m going to come at him, come at his body, want to come quickly at him. And I’d want him to try and pull because I feel like that’s his B game,” Steyn told Sanjay Manjrekar during a discussion on ESPNCricinfo.

“Even though he does it well, I’d want him to think that’s where I’m going to bowl, and then get it up there because I like to swing the ball, I like to move the ball. Look for those three modes of dismissals, LBW, bowled and the caught behind,” he added.

Virat Kohli really loves playing cover drives, while he scores most of his runs on the off-side it’s a risky shot as well because it gives the bowler a chance of getting him out-edged, caught behind, or LBW.

Veteran South African pacer Dale Steyn pacers would like to make the most of Virat’s uncertain movement at the beginning of the game to dismiss him.
