“I’m hoping Faf can take him back ten years,” Michael Vaughan says of Virat Kohli’s form. Former England captain Michael Vaughan has urged Virat Kohli to play with the same freedom he did ten years ago.
Former England captain Michael Vaughan has urged Virat Kohli to play freely as he did ten years ago. Kohli’s poor form has been a major issue for RCB this season, as he has been dismissed three times for golden ducks. So far in the IPL, the former RCB captain has 216 runs at an average of 19.64 and a strike rate of 111.34. Speaking ahead of RCB’s game against Punjab Kings, Vaughan believes Kohli can score big runs for his team if he can bat through the first few overs.
“I’m hoping Faf (du Plessis) can transport him back in time to when he didn’t have this profile. You are not married and do not have children. You’re going out there to have some fun by whacking the ball. Forget your age and what you’ve done “Vaughan stated this during a discussion on Cricbuzz.
Virat, says Michael Vaughan, can be dangerous if he gets off to a good start.
“I believe he can go big if he reaches the age of 35. He’s only had trouble with the first ten numbers. He’ll be dangerous if he can get away and show some of that youthfulness “He continued.
So far, the 33-year-old has one fifty, a 53-ball 58 against Gujarat Titans.
When RCB takes on PBKS, all eyes will be on Kohli once more.
RCB are currently fourth in the points table, having won seven of their last twelve games.
A victory over PBKS would move them closer to the IPL playoffs.
