Gulabsinh Rajput, An angry flame that licked at the surface and occasionally shot through in a violent burst. some thought it would burn him.(STATS || POINTS TABLE || FIXTURES) There is still a fire within Virat Kohli But it is a fire that drives him forward fuels his aspirations You can see it in his eyes narrowed to slits and looking to infinity you can see it in the cry for two when a ball travels into an open area and powers him back It cannot go to his head anymore for there it encounters ice That is now a cold calculating chamber taking in data setting off alarm points deciding when a two is right and when the ball needs to go over cover Or when the rare sweep needs to be pulled out Fire and Ice Such a cliché Like the name of a downmarket disco or the headline of a cheesy ad for bad liquor But it defines Virat Kohli today The ice is a relatively recent acquisition It wasn’t there when he was a young Under-19 team captain And even as late as that dramatic series in Australia where he peeled off four centuries and played some breathtaking shots he sometimes and only sometimes let the fire loose Every ball then became a war to be won and the Aussies realised they could needle him and get him to play a rash shot To his credit he snapped out of that zone quickly On that tour in the second innings at Adelaide with India needing 364 to win on a last-day track where 250 looked tough he played the innings I will always remember him for He made 141 and if there was any doubt about his temperament it was dispelled READ: Dissecting Virat Kohli’s innings against Australia based on hiswords It was also proof that he relishes tough situations It is often the sign of a champion It is also pretty rare There are many bone china batsmen around pretty and stylish but who crumble at the first sign of pressure Kohli seems to become twice the player buoyed up and ready to wade into battle It is a quality we saw in Dhaka in Kolkata and so dramatically in Mohali Some years ago Rahul Dravid who had admitted to raising an eyebrow when the young man walked in to the RCB team back in 2008 said what struck him about young Kohli was that every time he met him he seemed a better player than at the previous meeting Dravid was right in his assessment as he often is Just under two years ago Kohli encountered problems outside his off stump in England To play or not to play is a simple question that has befuddled many If he played he edged if he left it hit his stumps Word spread Even on a flat deck in Bangladesh they bowled a fifth or sixth stump line to him so he would reach out READ: Virat Kohli climbs top of ICC charts Watch him now The bat close to the body the feet decisive And his response to the outside-off line is to play one of the most thrilling cover drives in the game In the last few weeks I have lost count of the number of times I have gasped at the Kohli cover drive Only a few days ago on television we showed his scoring areas The weak zone outside off had produced a strong zone through cover The flick through mid-wicket is still a favourite shot and it hasn’t had to give way to the scoop over fine leg or the upper cut or the switch hit; those modern shots that bamboozle bowlers and purists In the modern game that could become as much a limitation as a qualification but he doesn’t need to worry about it yet In fact quite to the contrary I believe he stays away from those shots for fear that it could become a habit; a go-to shot that infects his technique For someone who is very much a man of his times he is still a fairly old-fashioned orthodox batsman WATCH:India vs West Indies: What to Expect From The Semis Clash That innings in Mohali coming on the heels of two match-winning efforts against Pakistan is Kohli’s version of Tendulkar’s sandstorm special in Sharjah in 1998 Deep down it must tickle him enormously that the comparison is even sought to be made for there is a reverence in his voice when he talks of his idol It has been said that when he wants to discuss technique and batting he seeks an appointment with the man he talks about in such respectful tones He came across to talk to us on Star Sports after his amazing innings in Kolkata where we were hardly aware that another masterpiece was to surface so soon He was very happy he said that his blood pressure hadn’t gone up in the run chase It was a revealing statement He wanted the fire to power him not singe him The fire was doing its job the ice was doing its job That in essence was Mohali 2016 For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Related News Hrithik Roshan, Vivek Oberoi with wife Priyanka, the cell has arrested three Nigerian nationals and have seized drugs like cocaine and Methacholine.
