PITCH IT UP TO KOHLI
According to data by CricViz, during the eight Tests in South Africa and England, India skipper Virat Kohli averaged 46.28 against full deliveries, 66.33 against good length balls and 69.33 against the short stuff. Per ESPNcricinfo, James Anderson had produced 53 false shots from Kohli by the third Test in England without dismissing him. In 2014, Kohli had played a false shot 54 times and has been out 10 times for an average of less than 14. So the simple strategy is to bowl full and swing the ball away or nip it back in. He might cover drive an entire session but as a luckless Anderson showed this year, Kohli will still edge the away moving ball. Or fall over and get hit on the pads.
