Virat explains reason behind recent upsets

There are no big teams in the World Cup. Whenever you start focusing only on bigger teams, an upset happens,”. Virat Kohli told official broadcasters Star Sports a day before the Bangladesh match.

The 34-year-old batsman went on to praise Bangladesh’s talent, noting that they had previously defeated India in the 2007 World Cup and that their captain Shakib Al-Hasan was a crucial piece of equipment for the Bangla Tigers.

Over the years, I’ve played a lot against him (Shakib). He’s got amazing control. He’s a very experienced bowler. He bowls very well with the new ball, knows how to deceive the batsman, and is also very economical. You have to play your best against all these bowlers, and if you aren’t able to, these bowlers are able to create pressure and increase the chances of getting you out,” said Virat.

Shakib praises kohli

Virat Kohli has been dismissed five times by Shakib Al-Hasan, who also discussed the importance of getting rid of the Indian batsman because he believes Kohli is a great player and possibly the finest in the current period.

“He’s a special batsman, probably the best batsman in the modern era. I think I’m lucky to get him out 5 times. Of course, it will give me great pleasure, taking his wicket,” said Shakib.
