It is obvious that Virat Kohli has rediscovered his magic. The former India captain got two tonnes in the final three games he played before the ODI series against New Zealand. With 27 tonnes in Tests, 46 in ODIs, and 1 in T20Is, Kohli now has 76 tonnes in international cricket. He presently ranks second only to Sachin Tendulkar (100 tonnes) among hitters with the most centuries. However, Kohli was having trouble up until a few months ago because he hadn’t scored a lot in more than two years. Regarding this, a Pakistani journalist made an attempt to tease Kohli by claiming that he performs best “when there’s no pressure.”
Sohaib Maqsood, a veteran of 29 ODIs and 26 T20Is for Pakistan, met a powerful reaction from him. “Virat Kohli is at his best when there’s no pressure, the series is not on the line, and conditions are great for batting. There’s no harm in gaining confidence and form in such matches, India needs him to perform well in Test cricket with Australia coming over too tho,” the journalist named Farid Khan tweeted. To which, Maqsood replied: “Are you sure he is only best when there is no pressure grow up yar two wrongs don’t make one right.”
The journalist, however, was in no mood to stop as he wrote: “Sohaib bhai, for a player to regain confidence nothing helps more than favorable conditions. He had a lean patch but he needed a match against Afghanistan in the Asia Cup when India was not in the tournament and then against Bangladesh when they had lost the series already.” However, Maqsood did not waver from his point of view. “When he wasn’t getting runs he wasn’t even getting on these roads tell me the country or pitches where he hasn’t scored centuries??? if they troll Baber we all know how the bigger player is Baber ignore that,” he tweeted.
