Mushfiqur Rahim talks about kohli

Mushfiqur Rahim, a seasoned wicketkeeper from Bangladesh, shared a few strategies he uses when facing Virat Kohli before to the game. Rahim stated that he avoids criticizing Kohli because doing so just serves to energize the former India captain. The 36-year-old further said that before he calms down, he orders his bowler to get Kohli out as quickly as possible.

There are certain batters who enjoy sledging and find it motivating. As a result, I never sledge him since it makes him angry“. Rahim remarked on Star Sports, “I constantly advise my bowlers to get rid of him as soon as possible”.

Whenever I play against him, he always tries to sledge me every time I go in to bat because he is a really competitive guy and he doesn’t want to lose any cricket match. I really love that rivalry with him and the challenge that comes with facing him and India,” Rahim added.
