England’s opening batsman Jason Roy said that the English team is not scared of Virat Kohli. Meanwhile, Roy admitted the fact Virat Kohli is imposing figure on the field. In fact, Virat Kohli always likes to take the bull by its horns and always likes to give his 120% on the field.

Furthermore, the Indian skipper is in fine form in the ongoing series against England. There were doubts raised over Kohli’s skills while playing in England on basis of his poor previous tour. However, Kohli was able to brush aside all the questions that were hanging over his batting credentials.

Virat Kohli fought a lone battle in the First Test Match.

Meanwhile, Jason Roy was part of a group discussion that also included International Cricket Council (ICC) chief executive David Richardson. Moreover, former India cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar was also present at the MCC Spirit of Cricket Cowdrey Lecture.

When commentator Mark Nicholas asked his thoughts on Virat Kohli, Jason Roy said that the English team is not afraid of Virat Kohli.

“Not scared of him, no. He’s obviously a great player, and rightly so, you’ve given him such kind words,” said the England opener. “He’s an extremely good athlete, an imposing batsman, an imposing figure on the field. We’ve got to find ways of dismantling him somehow, so we can’t give him too much praise right here”.

Meanwhile, Virat Kohli was at the top of his game in the first Test match against England. Kohli scored a fine 149 in the first innings and backed it with another 51 in the second dig. However, Kohli’s stupendous effort could not get India over the line.

On the other hand, Jason Roy is not part of the England Test squad.

The Indian skipper was the lone warrior in the Edgbaston Test as he didn’t receive any support from the other end. Thus, England was able to win by 31 runs as the opening match went down to the wire.

The second Test match will be played on 9 August at the home of cricket, Lord’s.
