Virat Kohli Reveals Match Against Mumbai In IPL 2020 Improved His Form

Virat Kohli was going through a bit of a rough patch in his form in IPL 2020 as he was getting out without even crossing twenty runs. However, after his match against Mumbai, he realised that he was taking too much pressure and it was affecting his game. He said:

β€œI was trying to do too much and putting too much pressure on myself, taking focus away from what I need to do – watch the ball and bat. Sometimes you forget you’re only a player out there, and the responsibility then kicks in.”

Virat Kohli Calls Win Against Chennai In IPL 2020 A Complete Performance

Virat and team looked in trouble when they lost many wickets in their first half of batting. However, he led from the front to take the team to a total of 169. Later, even the bowlers bowled beautifully and restricted CSK to 132 and won the match. Virat called this win a complete performance from the team and was happy with everything. He said:

β€œIt was one of our most complete performances. We got into a bit of a tricky position in the first half. From there on, we pushed forward. We spoke during the second timeout (with the bat) that 140-150 would be good. Ended up getting more than that. It was a tricky pitch.”

Dhoni Feels Batting Has Been A Worry For CSK In IPL 2020

MS Dhoni and his team CSK are not playing like the most lethal team that they usually are. Instead, they are losing even the easy matches because their batsmen are failing to deliver it for the team. Dhoni said:

β€œBatting has been a bit of a worry and today also it was evident. We need to do something about it. We can’t just keep turning up.. it is almost the same thing that is happening maybe the individuals are different.”

CSK Batting Lacks Power, Feel Dhoni

Dhoni thinks that his team’s batting is lacking on power hitting. He said:

β€œOur batting has lacked a bit of, you can say, power more from the 6th over onwards, individuals get tentative and no matter how much confidence you are giving them, ultimately they have to have their own plan as to how to play.”
