“In a T20 game, a single(Chillar) is as important as a six, that’s something I always believe. I was on 20 not out off 16 balls (17 off 16) without hitting a boundary. If you can do that and the opposition know if I can get two boundaries in between, my strike rate goes up to 150. If you can place the ball for two thrice an over and the sixth ball goes for a boundary, it is a brilliant over for you,” he analysed.
Offering a peek into his methods, Kohli said, “Sometimes I have committed the mistake of just being casual in a nets session(preparations) when I am playing well.
I believe, with me, the case is one bad nets session can really disturb me mentally, so I rather just play 10 balls, hit the middle of the bat and just feel good at a practice session.
There is no point going hard at the ball, playing 60-70 balls and middling only 10 balls. If I am in a good mental space, I can execute my strokes in the game, I know when to hit sixes and boundaries.”
