Kohli thrives under difficult situations

Virat Kohli is one player who thrives in difficult situations and loves challenges. He loves it when the tide is against him and he has to take his team through the tough phase.

Ravi Shastri’s concern is why would he want his best batsman back in the pavilion early in a World Cup game. But Kohli has the ability to overcome the tough conditions and weather the storm, irrespective of the format and the position he is batting. So why can’t he do it at No. 3? In the last year or so, he has scored Test hundreds in some of the most challenging conditions and has bailed the team out from trouble on multiple occasions.

Kohli has done it on numerous occasions even in white-ball cricket. He can turn the tide and bail the team out from any situation. Hence, batting at No. 3 will help Kohli to take the game head on and fight fire with fire, as he’s done for so long.
