Former Australian spinner Brad Hogg believes that Villat Koli has decided to leave the T20 International and the Royal Challenger Bangalore (RCB) captain to focus on matching Sachin Tendulkar’s 100 international centuries record.
Speaking of Virat Kohli’s decision to leave the RCB captain after IPL 2021, Brad Hogg said that Kohli is focusing on a longer format.
“He has retired from the T20 captain and RCB’s international positions. This is a bigger picture, and he focuses on the longer format of the game. He wants to lead India in cricket testing and ODI. But there is also a record in his sight-trying to get the Tendulkar record of 100 international hundred people. “: said Brad Hogg, the front left arm rotator
Brad Hogg further pointed out Willard Kolly It is very close to Sachin’s 100 people in ODI, but very far away in Tests. He hopes to match Tendulkar’s record of 51 test centuries. Hogg said:
“He is very well with Sachin in ODI, currently there are 43 hundreds. But he only had 27 hundred in the test. Tendulkar scored 51 hundred in 200 games. I think Kohli wants to focus on cricket testing and match Tendulkar’s record of 50 tests and hundreds. He also wants to be one of the great men. I think this is where Corley is going. “
“I think he should still be captain in 50 games”: Brad Hogg
According to the former Australian cricket player, Virat Kohli should continue to be the captain of the Indian national cricket team in the one-day international tournament.
“I think it’s very good for him to jump out of the T20 role. The one-day team is not much different from the test team. You need a different T20 format captain, but I think he should still be a 50-over format captain”
In addition, Brad Hogg further added that he believes Corley will not play too many games in the T20 cricket match and will continue to focus on ODI and testing after the next T20 World Cup.
“Don’t think that Corley will play too much T20 cricket after the next World Cup (2022). He may give up and focus on testing and day trips. Remember that he has a new family, there are a lot of bio-bubble safety issues, and players are under a lot of pressure in these situations.This may cause Kohli to stop playing T20 cricket in a few years. “
