Talented players like Kohli don't need county stints: Gavaskar

Two of India's absolute best cricketers, skipper Virat Kohli and premier spinner R Ashwin, had unfinished business in England. Their closing excursion in 2014 was a forgettable one. In the intervening period, each had taken large leaps in opposition to greatness and had almost reached the summit. The closing leg remained and that's invariably the most tricky one to surmount. By the time the primary Test was midway accomplished, each had conquered the peak and cemented their places in the pantheon of greats of the game.

In doing so, Kohli made a mockery of the thinking that he needed to play county cricket to get a big ranking in England. Kohli is an exceptional ability and can get runs even though he wakes up in the middle of the evening. More than him, it's the other guys who have lesser ability who needed to spend more time playing in opposition to the red ball, as was seen by the best way they struggled in opposition to the shifting ball. Even if India go directly to win the Test and the sequence, the decision to play just one three-day sport in the fortnight's gap has obviously not helped the other batsmen. More than Kohli, it is the others who need more time in opposition to the red ball. Kohli cannot rescue the crew each and every time.

There was never any doubt about each Ashwin and Kohli's talent and temperament but greater than to the remainder of the arena, they'd some degree to prove to themselves. Ashwin got the ball to spin, wobble and switch each ways at the first day of the Test match itself and no person may just say that the pitch helped him. It was talent of the perfect order as he wove a internet around the England batsmen. The deliveries to citadel a batsman of Alastair Cook's enjoy takes some doing but Ashwin did it with complete ease.

Then it was the Indian skipper's flip to show why he's the best batsman on this planet. He was watchful first of all and understandably in order India had lost 3 wickets in fast succession and Anderson saved probing him with an off-stump line and away swingers. Then he had some luck, as any batsman will require in such conditions.
