Ahead of the 3rd Test match between India and England, Virat Kohli has been ruled out of the remaining matches. As per the selectors, he had some personal reasons, owing to which he chose to opt out of the series. However, the fans are already missing Kohli’s presence in the series and wanted to see the banters between James Anderson and him. Even England’s former pacer, Stuart Broad, has agreed to the fact that the series will miss Kohli as an allrounder who used to bring in a lot of support, fun and seriousness to the matches.
Broad said, “It’s a shame for the series that he will be missing but India have won the last Test. Kohli is such a quality player, his passion, and his fire, but obviously, personal matters always take precedence. But it gives a great opportunity to young players also. So, someone in the Indian batting line-up will stand up at some stage.”
Virat Kohli’s absence from the Test series is a good thing for the youngsters as they’ll get a chance to play and perform. Moreover, after winning the 2nd Test match, India will be looking forward to win the rest of the matches.
‘So ‘Bazball’ is a mentality that is driving the game forward’ – The former England pacer is in favour of Bazball approach
Stuart Broad, England’s former player, has spoken in favour of the Bazball approach. As per him, this worked in every country and all the players’ mentality as well. Players have become mentally strong and the way they are playing has helped the team in a lot of ways.
Broad said, “I love it. The series is one-all (1-1) at the moment, but I think ‘Bazball’ has proven that it can work in every country. I think Hyderabad’s performance is the most impressive performance of the England team. We won in Pakistan 3-0, we played well in New Zealand. So ‘Bazball’ is a mentality that is driving the game forward.”
