Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli has failed to score a century in international cricket for the last 50 innings. Even in the ongoing Test series against England, Kohli’s bat has remained calm so far.

Pacer James Anderson easily caught Kohli in his net as a strategy in the first innings of the Headingley Test. Kohli returned to the pavilion after scoring 7 runs. In the first innings, Anderson took big wickets of KL Rahul, Cheteshwar Pujara and Kohli.

After the end of the first day’s play, Anderson described Virat’s wicket as special in the virtual press conference. Anderson said, ‘I think Virat’s wicket is extra special. We have had good competition in the last few years. He is an excellent player. As a team you want to keep them calm. Especially in the 5 match series. When he is in rhythm, he can prove to be very destructive.
