Kohli is also going to hit the ball like in ODI

Indian captain Virat Kohli said that this aspect of his batting in the third Test, drawn against Sri Lanka, also came to know that hit the ball in a five-day match is no different than the ODI.
Kohli played 243 runs in 287 balls with 24 fours in the last match against Sri Lanka. He said that it was a new thing for them that they can play in Test cricket just as fast as they play in ODIs.
The captain said after the match, “If I tell myself personally, then I was very well hit the ball and it was a new thing for me in a way that I can hit the ball in the same way in the test and so many I can make runs as fast as I do in ODIs. I always hesitated a bit, but it made me feel that you can also push the game forward in Test cricket. ”
Kohli was selected both Man of the Match and Man of the Series. He scored 610 runs in the series with three centuries, including two double hundreds.
Kohli’s 243-run innings was his sixth double century and he became the first captain to score six Test double centuries, leaving behind West Indies great Cricketer Brian Lara, whose names were five double centuries as captain.
It was Kohli’s biggest score too, thus leaving behind his best innings of 235 against England in Mumbai. He overtook Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag in most double centuries.
When asked if he is approaching achievements like this century, what is going on in his mind, Kohli said, “When I was not a captain, it was difficult to guess the situation every time. When I was putting foot in test cricket, I was under pressure. When I reached an achievement I was relaxed in a way. But now it is quite different. ”
The star cricketer said, “Now, as a captain, I have to continue batting after reaching 150 or 150 runs and on the scoreboard we have to continue moving forward as much as possible. Or if I am batting in the second innings, then there is a situation in which the bowler gets an extra over for the opposition to be dismissed later. ”
Indians dropped some catches in Sri Lanka’s first innings and Kohli admitted that the team needs to improve slip fielding before the South Africa tour.
Kohli said, “If you practice good in the first and second slips, then you can become addicted to it. We have seen a decrease in this area in which we need to work.
