Srinagar: Former Pakistan skipper Misbah ul Has has said that it is just mental issue that is not allowing India batting superstar come out of his lean patch of form.
Former India skipper Vira Kohli has gone around two years without scoring a century in International cricket.
Now Misbah speaking on the Youtube channel show has said that it is all mental and nothing else that behind Virat Kohli’s lean patch.
“When there are too many noises in the head, then your mind and body’s coordination which helps you to react and play the ball gets broken. No matter how great you are, that automation gets affected. It’s natural. People sometimes complicate it, despite being great. Generally, we talk about Virat Kohli chasing the ball away from the off-stump, nicking the ball at fourth or fifth stumps, We see the technical fault, but why is he doing that? There’s mental issue behind it,” Misbah said in a discussion on ICA Sports YouTube channel.
Misbah said that Kohli’s ego of dominating bowlers is not helping his cause.
“He is trying to dominate. Virat Kohli has got ego, pride that ‘I have to dominate’. But what is happening is, somewhere were the other, you are over-trying. You go out of your zone. The pressure is getting mounted. There is only one way to get out of it, move away from pressure situation. I can say about my experience. It has happened once or twice with me. I went back and played club cricket. It doesn’t matter what quality of bowlers you are facing, at the back of mind that automation comes back once you score runs,” Misbah said.
