Ind vs Ned Live Updates: Haris Rauf says ‘Kohli unleashed so much aggression’

Speaking during an ESPN Crincinfo documentary, Rauf said, “When I was a net bowler with the Indian team, and was bowling to Virat Kohli, I felt like he knew exactly where the ball was going to hit his bat. He was very focussed and that showed how sharp his concentration was. Even during practice session in the nets, he unleashed so much aggression that, it felt like I was playing a match against him despite being a net bowler. His remarkable control and intensity made me realise why he has such a reputation in the game,” Rauf said in his documentary on ESPNCricinfo.

India vs Netherland LIVE Updates: Should Kuldeep Yadav be in India’s Playing XI? Ravi Shastri answers

Speaking to ESPNCricinfo, Shastri said, “You have to be flexible. I will go one step ahead and watch the oppositions and think how they will play whom. And now that Ashwin is in the 15, it makes a challenge for the XI all the time. Kuldeep is not a certainty, unless he comes in and starts off brilliantly. Yes there is no question about Kuldeep’s performance… he has been bowling at his best after a long time. But on a certain day and on a certain track…if the pitch is dry, you would want only two fast bowlers because there is Hardik Pandya as well,”

Ind vs Ned LIVE: Ravi Shastri picks Surya Kumar Yadav over Iyer in WC playing XI

In an interaction with ESPN Cricinfo, Shastri said, “I’ll be watching him closely, very very closely. Because if your top order is firing, so you have 6-7-8 players, you will play him or Shreyas Iyer at this moment. But if all the batters are getting runs then that guy becomes the X factor in a big game, he can win you a game. Because at 6-7-8, the damage he can do with Hardik, they can just take the game away from the opposition in the last 6-7 overs. So that X factor you gotta think of, I can imagine that your batting is struggling but it’s not the case,”

India vs Netherlands LIVE: Sunil Gavaskar comments on Jadeja’s current form

Speaking to Hindustan Times, Gavaskar said, “Not really. With the kind of experience that he (Jadeja) has, it’s not a worry. The important thing is that he is such a fast runner between the wicket. Often, we overlook it… the fact that from the non-striker end, he helps the batter covert ones into twos. So, I think those are the little things that are important. So yeah, I am not worried after Ravindra Jadeja at all. He is a top player, a wonderful player… rockstar, like Shane Warne once said,”
