The former Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar revealed his strategy against the Indian captain Virat Kohli. Shoaib said that he has a plan against the current top batsman of the world. Akhtar planned on dismissing Virat with pace and seam.
“If I was bowling, I would go wider of the crease and pitch the ball up [to Kohli] and shape it away from him in order to make him drive. If that does not work, I will bowl him at 150 [kph] and he will get out.”, Shoaib said.
Virat Kohli has been the most prolific batsman in modern-day cricket. Even the best bowlers find it difficult to plan against Virat. However, things might look different if he faces the legendary fast bowlers like Shoaib Akhtar, Wasim Akram, or Glenn McGrath.
