Strike rate 33.33…”Ex-Pakistan Star’s Latest Attack on Virat Kohli

Former Pakistani left-arm pacer Junaid Khan was the latest to launch an attack on Virat Kohli after Kohli was dismissed on 3 of 9 deliveries in a match against the Mumbai Indians. 

There has been a lot of talk regarding Kohli’s strike rate, and Junaid has been the latest to attack Kohli. Junaid Khan took X and wrote “Strike rate 33.33” in reference to Virat’s 9 ball 3 before the batter was dismissed by Jasprit Bumrah.

Well, this is not the first time that Junaid Khan has been critical of Virat Kohli.

Earlier in the match against the Rajasthan Royals, Virat Kohli scored a prolific 113* of 72 deliveries. Junaid Khan took X and wrote, “Congratulations, Virat Kohli, for the slowest hundred in the IPL.”

In his innings of 113*, Virat Kohli hit 12 boundaries and 4 sixes, but it came to be the joint slowest hundred in the history of the IPL, along with Manish Pandey (67 deliveries).
