Bangladesh fast bowler Al-Ameen Hossain has said that in his view Virat Kohli is different from the rest of the batsmen in that he sled the bowler on every ball. Hussain said that the rest of the batsmen defend the good ball but Virat sled the bowler.
Speaking on Facebook Live of Bangladesh’s Crickfrenzy website, Hussain said, ‘Whenever you throw a dot ball to Virat, he will sledge you. He will tell you things that you cannot say in front of the audience. He tries to put pressure on the bowler, mentally trying to upset him.
Virat Kohli has been seen many times fighting with the opposition players on the field. It has been observed that the Indian captain’s enthusiasm often increases after this.
Hussain further said, ‘I have bowled Chris Gayle, Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma and other great batsmen of the world. Nobody does this. They defend when you throw a good ball. Kohli is not like that, he will sledge you in reply.
Earlier, Bangladeshi fast bowler Rubel Hussain also shared stories of his hotness with Virat. It also included a debate in the days of the Under-19s.
Rubel said in his Facebook Live with Tamim Iqbal, ‘He used to do a lot of sledding then. I think he sleds a little less for the national team.
