The Indian cricket team is getting praised from all over the world, their performance in the T20 World Cup 2022 is overwhelming and they have made the place in super-4 with a bang. Rohit Sharma & Co. will try to continue their stardom in the semi-final game against England on Thursday at Adelaide Oval in Adelaide.
Indian Star batter Virat Kohli commonly known as the Run-Machine has scored 246 runs in this tournament and is also the leading scorer of the tournament. Alongside Virat, Suryakumar Yadav is another most reliable player of India in the tournament, currently, he is No. 1 ICC Men’s T20 Player. He has scored 1000+ runs in a calendar year in T20I and became the first Indian player to achieve this feat and the second player in the World after Md. Rizwan. Looking at both dangerous batters of the Indian team, every senior and former cricketer shared their thoughts and gave advice to the English team. Joining the trend, former Australian cricketer Brad Hogg advised English skipper Jos Buttler to use his pacer Mark Wood only against Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav and also explain the strategies to get wickets for both star batters in the important match.
“England have got Wood bowling all four of his overs to Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav. When he is bowling to Kohli, he needs to try and have a gap very square on the shorter side and try to get him to play squarer rather than playing in the V” said Hogg on his YouTube channel.
He also explained how Wood could use his lethal pace deliveries to get the wicket of Virat in a few balls, and also mentioned how the Adelaide pitch works with pace delivery.
“With his extra pace, the Adelaide pitch just skids a little more than the other surfaces. You might be able to get Kohli LBW or bowled when he is playing square” he further added.
Mark Wood is known for his pace battery in this tournament. He has the capability to bowl the whole over with a pace of 140+ for each ball. He has bowled the fastest delivery of this tournament too.
On the pitch of Adelaide, he might be a tough bowler to play for the Indian batter.
