Once Jasprit Bumrah Said ‘NO’ To MS Dhoni To Allow Virat Kohli To Bowl In International Match

Perfection comes to a person but not in every field. One can't excel in all the streams and this is accepted by Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli also. Virat is making records every now and then with his bat and seeing his game, it can say that in the coming years, he will go for more. Also, he always leads the charts when it comes to catches. But, not every time is the same.

In the early period of his career, the cricketer tried himself to take some wickets, but on the other hand, his teammates were not too interested on his medium pace bowling. Virat Kohli revealed it while talking about why he has not rolled his arm in the international field since 2017.

The skipper said that "During the ODI series in Sri Lanka (back in 2017) where we had almost won everything, I asked MS (Dhoni) if I could bowl. Just when I was getting ready to roll my arm over, Bumrah (Jasprit) shouted from the boundary and said 'no joking around, it is an international game'.”

Virat Kohli also said that no one in the Indian team believes in his bowling, but he continues to have confidence in his ability. “After that I had back issues and then never bowled (in the middle)," said the Indian skipper and captain. He revealed the details in an interview to host broadcaster of the World Cup.

Now, Virat bowls in the nets. Recently earlier this week in a practice session, he was seen trying out a new action. He took four wickets in ODIs. Also, he has bowled 163 balls in Test cricket but the wickets column is still empty.

"I used to follow James Anderson's action when I was at the academy (in Delhi). Later, when I got to play alongside him, I told him about that story. We both had a good laugh over it," Kohli said that.
