As someone who “loves to play against Australia,” Sanjay Bangar is confident that the 34-year-old will be fired up for the forthcoming series and will raise his game.
It’s getting down to the wire for the Border Gavaskar Trophy, and all eyes are on former Indian captain Virat Kohli, who has struggled for runs in the longest version of the game in recent years. Sanjay Bangar, a former Indian cricketer, believes Kohli will be at full strength for the forthcoming series starting on February 9.
Both India and Australia will be seeking to make a statement in the next Test series, which will be played across the longest format of the game and will award valuable WTC points to the winning team. Even while everyone is talking about how the subcontinent’s pitches would affect the game, it’s Indian batting ace Virat Kohli who really has the power to swing the series.
Never one to back down from a challenge, Kohli has amassed 1682 runs and seven hundreds against the top-ranked Test side in Australia, boasting a respectable average of.406. Sanjay Bangar, a former Indian cricketer, said that the 34-year-old would be ready to step up his game in the forthcoming series because he enjoys taking on tough competition.
He really enjoys competing against Australian teams. Test cricket is a format that draws the most out of Virat Kohli, and he enjoys the banter with the Australian players, who always seem to elevate their game for him. According to his standards, the last two and a half years have been less fruitful.
Since he has found success with a new approach in Twenty20 and One-Day International matches, he likely hopes to replicate that success in Test cricket. According to what Bangar said during an interview with Star Sports, “he is going to make a big bang and generate an effect in this series as well.”
He has come a long way in his fight against the dry spell: Bangar
It appears that the former Indian captain has regained his form after breaking his century drought in white-ball cricket against Afghanistan in the group round of the Men’s T20 World Cup, 2022. Nonetheless, he will be eager to break his century drought in red-ball cricket in the forthcoming critical series; his previous one was in 2019 against Bangladesh. Bangar is rooting for Kohli to rediscover his Test cricket form and lead India to victory over Australia.
“All signs point in that direction, since he has already made significant progress toward overcoming the dry spell (or whatever you want to call it) as a result of his high-level cricket play. Virat Kohli regaining his form in the Test cricket and leading India to victory. That’s the kind of series finale headline I’d enjoy reading “Moreover, he said.
