“You guys are chokers”, Panesar Advice England to Sledge Virat Kohli

Former England player Monty Panesar advised England team to sledge Indian team including Virat Kohli and to play with their ego during the upcoming five-match Test series against India. Next week India will be up against England in the opening match of the contest at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad.

Against England Virat Kohli scored 1991 runs in 28 matches, the second-most he has managed against a single opponent. Monty Panesar, had advised the visiting England side to engage in mind games to restrict the former India captain’s run-scoring. He advised Ben Stokes and Co to play with Virat’s ego. Panesar Said, “Play with his ego and get psychologically stuck into him. They should also say things to him like, you guys are chokers when it comes to the final. They should sledge him on those lines because Stokes has won the ODI and T20 WC and Kohli has not and that is going to mentally pinch him.”

The former England spinner also predicted that James Anderson will be successful against Virat Kohli. Though England pacer had dismissed Kohli four times in the 2014 series, he became successful to dismiss former Indian Captain only twice since then. But Panesar predicted, “I think it will be James Anderson and I think it will be the reverse-swing that would get Kohli.”
