Ind vs Eng: Virat Kohli should stop thinking like a captain while batting, says Inzamam-Ul-Haq- Former Pakistan captain and one of the best batsmen of his era Inzamam-Ul-Haq has opened up about Virat Kohli’s lean patch with the bat. He advised him to stop thinking like a captain while batting and bring his natural game to the fore.
“Everyone knows that Virat Kohli is the No. 1 player in the world. His touch as a class player is missing so far. If he wants to come out of this rut, Kohli needs to play his strokes and go back to his natural game. He is putting too much pressure on himself,” Inzamam told on his YouTube channel.
“My suggestion to Kohli will be – stop thinking like captain when you go out to bat. He needs to remember that he is Virat Kohli. He needs to bat just the way Virat Kohi does. Kohli must keep all the other stuff related to captaincy aside when he bats. If he goes in thinking as captain every time, his natural fluency and power gets affected, which can be seen. Yes, it’s a big series but Kohli must remember that he has performed on the big stage before. But he seems to have gone into his shell and needs to come out of it,” he added.

Inzamam also stressed the fact that Ajinkya Rahane and Cheteshwar Pujara needs to start attacking the bowlers to play long innings.
“England has one Joe Root, India have many players who can play big knocks. But Ajinkya Rahane and Cheteshwar Pujara are consuming too many balls and then get out to good balls. They need to start attacking a bit. If Rohit Sharma starts to play freely, he too can be more effective and put pressure back on England,” Inzamam concluded.
Inzamam is one of the biggest cricketers from Pakistan with over 22,000 runs and 35 Tons, and 2 double centuries. In Tests, he amassed over 8000 runs at an average of 49.33.
