Anderson on kohli

Probably deserves an article on its own... Anderson during interview at close of play on day 4...

Full quote;


"I am not sure if he (Kohli) has changed. I just think any technical deficiencies he has got are not in play out here. The wickets just take that out of the equation. There is not that pace in the wicket to get the nicks, like we did against him in England – with a bit more movement," said England's highest ever wicket-taker in Test matches.

"When that (pace and movement) is not there, he (Kohli) is very much suited to playing in these conditions. He is a very good player of spin – and if you are not bang on the money and don't take your chances, he will punish you," Anderson did not hide what he felt about Kohli's technique on a day when the skipper scored a career-best 235.

Thoughts?

Chill out doc

Being a cricket fan I remember the SA V India test very well due to the world record chase that was almost done. To refresh your memory the test was played at Joburg which is known for being flat:

The 2nd test was at Durban where he struggled

As for Oz, this is not the 80s or 90s. You get drop in wickets now and they all tend to be flat as a pancake.

Pitch was that easy that the whole of the England team failed to surpass Kohlis double hundred.

Ignore kash and a14 same old bitter drivel from them

I was thinking the same too.

I think this has been completely blown out of proportion, he merely gave his opinion. He didn't come out and say

"That innings didn't mean anything as it was on a flat pitch"

Anderson has a good record abroad, he is our best pace bowler, I expected him to have been more dangerous this tour and think he has been disappointing, but I don't really think there's much wrong with him giving an opinion.

A14, you still 12 or something. That joke suggests that the 14 in your name is akin to your age.

I'm not 12 or something. Just stating a simple fact. That isn't intended to be a "joke"... not funny in the slightest. Why don't you log on to your other account and see if that "users" agrees with you

Gotta love it

Agree true. Just a shame it's seem to have offended a few
