Balaji credits Virat Kohli for India’s pace renaissance

While India has always been a batting powerhouse, same wasn’t said about their bowling, particularly the pace battery. However, those days are over when Indian pacers used to struggle as the current pace department of India instills fears in the mind of batters. Even in the last Test match against West Indies, fast-bowlers recorded an elite bowling outing.

Reflecting on India’s pace resurgence, former Indian cricketer Lakshmipathy Balaji moved to credit the current skipper Virat Kohli. The 37-year old believes that Kohli’s idea about managing the workload of quicks did wonders for India. In addition to that, the cricketer turned coach wished luck to India as he wants them to record a dominant performance and claim glory in the ongoing ICC World Test Championship.

“Everything boils down to how a captain manages his personnel. I would give a lot of credit to Virat for managing his bowlers really well. You get in team on your performance, but who handles the talent well on field should be credited. Virat has done a superb job,” said by Chennai born.
