New Delhi: Former Australia captain Ian Chappell feels that Virat Kohli is a man in “control of his batting” which enables him to pull off some great run chases in pressure situations.
“He is a man who is in control of his batting and he knows exactly what he is trying to do. He knows how to do it and for a guy who has got a fiery temperament in a lot of ways, you seem to be getting involved in shouting matches on the field, it is the fiery temperament, but he seems able to keep it under control in tense situations like that where he is chasing down the target,” said Chappell, who is an ESPNcricinfo analyst for ‘Match Day’.
“He seems to have himself totally under control whereas other times I have seen him where he looks out of control, but never with the bat in his hand,” said Chappell.
Chappell said that Virat’s innings at the Eden reminded him of his second innings century at Adelaide in 2014.
