Virat Kohli’s average against Pakistan spin and the pace attack

Virat Kohli, indubitably the best batsman in the modern-day era, has a subtle record against almost every side he plays against. Every opposition endeavor hard to work out a tactic against Virat Kohli whenever he comes to bat on the 22-yards.

Virat's record against arch-rival Pakistan is not bad either. His highest ODI score of 183 also came against Pakistan. On the other side of the picture, Pakistan's seamers have most of the time got better of Virat Kohli than the Pakistani spinners.

His average against Pakistan's spinners is around about 102 while he averages only 30 against the pace bowling attack of Pakistan. Virat Kohli was dismissed by Junaid Khan 3 times in the bilateral ODI series between India and Pakistan in 2012. He also became victim to Wahab Riaz in the semi-final of the World Cup 2011.

His problematic stay against Mohammad Amir in the final of Champions Trophy 2017 is still fresh in many minds. Therefore, Pakistan can work out on this strategy against Kohli in the ICC World Cup 2019. By not allowing him to settle down against the spinners, Pakistan has a good chance to keep him in a spot of bother against their quality pace attack.
